Well, I'm totally the opposite of you. I'm not easily convinced. I've been through a lot of hardships in the past and I guess that's what makes me form a very strong opinion on almost everything. I always tend to form my own ideas or suggestions because depending on someone else makes me feel vulnerable. And that kinda creeps me out. Unlike my sister, she's a real pushover. I think the only person that can convince me otherwise is my boyfriend. He knows which buttons to press and I'm getting used to the fact that conforming to some issues just might not be such a bad thing.. =D

I'm not very gullible I'm afraid. For some reason people often think I am, but I'm quite wary and paranoid of people so I often don't believe what they say anymore. I really don't do good with anyone who's trying to manipulate me, I really hate that and you won't get anywhere with me as I refuse to even listen.

I am easily convinced as well . I always want to believe what others are telling me as I am always trying to find the good in other people and am always looking to give someone a second chance . I don't care about people that tell lies and hate to think that anyone could possibly be lying to me even when other's tell me not to give someone another chance or what they are known to be like . I am often told I am gullible because I am easily convinced but I always want to give someone the benfit of the doubt .

Well I am trying to work out by what you are meaning.DO you mean inf orming opinions of people, going somewhere, deciding what music you like? Or just everything in general. If you know me at all on here you probably already know that I am the kind of girl that likes to stand out and make a statement so I think I actually tend to go against the grain and if someone says something is fantastic I normally form the opinion of no it isn't regardless of what it actually is just cos I like to be different. I have always been like this from a young age and it tends to strike people as a very brave thing to do but I have never liked to manipulated by other peoples thoughts and feeling so have always went out my way to ensure this doesn't happen.

hmm, just pretty much things in general. you know, the conformity and non-conformity stuff. i tend to end up conforming to others because like i said, i easily get convinced. :P sometimes, i wish i wasnt like this because sometimes, i wanna speak my voice out too and yet, i find a hard time doing it.

Depends on the matter. When I put an objective in my life, nothing can get on the way. I don't care if others try to convince me to give up, I just keep trying. Like trying to conquer that girl's heart: she knows I love her, and she said she doesn't love me. Around 90% of the people that know I love her tells me to give up. I'm still trying. No one will stop me.

It's getting hard everyday that passes. These acnes are killing me, f**king things! Maybe if I can take them off my face, I can do it. She is like telling me to forget her, but she is very cool. I mean, she tells me in a friendly way, that she doesn't want to see me suffering. I don't care, I can't give up now. I've done too much already, I don't want to carry a scar forever. Thanks, maybe someday I can do it.

ooh.. well, it doesnt matter. you can always go to the derma to have your acne treated and then after a few sessions or so, you will look a lot better and then maybe, she'll be shocked by how you look! and then you'll have a happy ending. :) good luck to you, my friend! :)

It seems like we have A LOT in common! :D I'm exactly like you: when I don't have a proper decision about the subject, I'm hugely influenced by those "powerful" friends. I think it's an awful thing, but I'm like that since I was a little kid. Once I make my own judgment, then I'm much tougher though. But I can change my mind pretty easily too, not only depending on other's opinions, but also because my tastes change pretty fast. It's hard to explain, so I'll give you a simple example: One day I was talking to a friend about "jaguar patterns" on clothes/bags. I don't know the proper term in English, but I think you understood. In the morning I said I'd never use it, not because I don't like it, but because it doesn't match me. In the evening, I bought a bag with that pattern. Hahaha! It really happened, and she makes fun of me until now.

yeah, i have noticed that. :) haha! guess we have the same set of friends also, those "powerful" ones who does all the talking, convincing and manipulating and brain washing. lolz. :) im still trying to think about a funny experience where i was easily duped in the end, but i cant remember (maybe because there were a lot of them already). but i'll try to insert some experience here once i find an appropriate and funny situation. lolz. :)

sometimes i can be easily convinced too but mostly, it will take time for others to convinced me. Just give some good excuses then you will get away it. But sometimes i find myself lying only for the sake of that. some people are very annoying, they are eager on their persuasion. But it's one way to keep them away from you by Ignoring and giving them excuses (sometimes you have to lie a little bit though)!!

yeah, i easily get duped by excuses and alibis and other white lies. lolz. however, i also am good at convincing others. just like others can easily convince me, i too, in return, can easily convince and manipulate others. :)

It varies from day to day. One day I am more suspicious, one day I am easy to convince. I notice that I always forget that April 1st is April fools day and these stories in the newspaper always sound so right. I notice very late what a fool I am. So, yes, I would say I am easily convinced.
