    Default How do others see you?

    I hope this has not been brought up before...

    I was once talking to a friend of mine, INFP I think, and he started saying that I was a weird, mysterious person. He said that he thought every single person would have an entirely different perception of me, who I am, how I think, what my personality is, as if there is a conflict or something. I found this quite fascinating, I wonder how that happens. I've had other people say similar things, that I was a confusing person because I would occasionally say something with complete honestly that they would never think I would say. I think this may be in part due to my introversion, and the fact that I'm kind of holding a lot back from people, and that I just kind of subtly let things seep out as they talk to me so they can get to know me better.

    What are some things people have said about you, some of the really interesting and notable things people have said that really made you reflect on your character?

    Errr...
    I always have a hard time explaining how I seem.
    I've gotten a lot of different descriptions.
    Some people say I'm sweet and sensitive, and others say I'm bitter and emotionally numb.
    Some say I seem really timid, and others say I'm intimidating.
    I've been considered detached or passionate, depending on who you ask.

    I don't know what to say. Different people have radically different impressions of me.

    I must say that my favorite compliment ever was being told that I was "strangely fascinating".
    I am consistenly unusual.

    Things I hear said about me most frequently, both directly and reported back to me by others are:

    friendly, cheerful, helpful, clever, quick, easy-going, approachable, energetic, arrogant, genuine, witty, eccentric, honourable, reliable, decent, funny, crazy, insensitive, kind, busy.

    I get talked about quite a lot, apparently, when I'm not there. But I'm told that it's mostly good stuff.

    Default I dunno... who do you think I am?

    Most people I have talked to about "who I am" say that I am one of the sweetest, caring, and mysterious people they know. (aww!) *blushing*

    I have also been told that I am so calm and have a good head on my shoulders.

    I just think I am weird (my sweetie thinks so, too! He tells me that it's a "good" weird!)

    I never cared how others see me. As that is only a matter of appearance and not essence.

    Definitely aloof and arrogant though..

    They never know what to make of m, so they associate me with the only word that can be, Weird.

    generally either as a bitch or as someone who can take care of herself (I'm frequently told this by people)

    I think this comes from my not being afraid of anyone really (except for clowns and mimes!!!)

    I doubt many people really do care much, or at least most mature people do not care much, what others think of them. Its not soemthing people should, or do, use to just boost their ego, but I find it incredibly fascinating how others can see you for the exact reasons you mentioned -it is a matter of your appearance, not your essence, so to see the difference is very interesting, I think.

    I read somewhere that when you're young, you worry too much about what others think of you. When you're middle aged, you don't care what other people think about you. When you're old, you realise nobody thinks about you at all.

    Lazy, laid back, disorganized, aimless, messy, indecisive, etc. Just about every P trait in the book. If only they knew the organization that goes into the madness.
