    It's extraordinary, but some people actually think that I give a shit.

    And it's like, no I don't.



    Seriously though, some people think that I know what I'm talking about, others think that when I start nod-only responses that I actually want the conversation to continue, most people assume that I'm straight when they meet me, someone even had the audacity to refer to me as a "people person" based on no evidence, except by virtue of the fact that I was nodding while they talked at me
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    People think that because I'm so lonely, I must be desperate and standardless.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Default misperceptions

    It astounds me that even the most intimate people in my life think I am the glue that holds my crazy family together, when in fact I am the divisive one, with my wayward little heart and all.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

He said I was against evil big business, which I'm not, and neither of those are. Maybe I used to be like that?... I don't even know. I'm ranting, but the whole conversation was very strange, and he isn't even the first person to assume that.
    Yes, I get this, too. I would add that people think I have bizarre, inflexible moral codes.

    For example, someone gave me an Xmas present and said, "Oh, and I made sure I wrapped it in recycled paper for you and did this and this and this..." and I didn't know where that came from. It's like, I don't care, I'm not judging you -- just because I have ideas about how to live my life doesn't mean I apply those standards to you!

    Once I decide what other people perceive of me, I'll see if they are misperceiving me. Somehow I think people see my words but they don't understand where they come from.

    Well people seem to think that I know everything, and that I can "give them advice" on "how to do things" on, basically, everything, and that I understand everything new "on sight". And also they get kind of pissed when I can't.

    lol. I think that makes sense in the context of ENTj-ness.

    It seems like people who don't know me can underestimate me because initially I can be quiet.

    A lot of people assume I am a shy (depressed) introvert when they see me sitting by myself in public not interacting with anyone.

    People think I'm funny but what they don't realize is that I actually have no sense of humor at all.
