I have a few Passions in Life. My friends know fully well what they are. I like Winnie the Pooh, Manchester United FC, Football, watching Animes/Cartoons, reading Mangas/Comics and etc.. I think I am more of a Influencer. I have influenced many of my friends into liking one or more of my above passions. For example, when I was in Middle school, I influenced my partner into liking Winnie the Pooh and Manchester United FC (she is not a football fan). Of course, I also have many friends who deliberately choose to anti what I like just to irritate me. I hardly get influence by others. I also do not follow fashion trends. When it comes to dressing, I dress what I like and do not bother about what's the latest trends. How about you? Do you Influence Friends more or do your Friends Influence You more? Please do share.

I'm the opposite of u, ple influence me more than i influence them.. hehe ^_^ Because i'm more of an introvert, thus i tend to follow the tend.. But as i grow older now, i'm standing by my own judgements but still i cant manage to influence my frenz.. lol

I'm sure you have influenced your friends before in ways you do not know.. More Importantly is to influence others or be influenced positively.

I don't have any friends in my real life other than my husband. We influence each other. I do have some online friends but we do not influence one another. I think we inspire one another though.

I talk to friends, they talk to me. But we don't influence each other. we all have differing opinions and that's a good way to go. We all form our own opinions.
