How would you describe yourself in one word?

How would you describe yourself? My title is crystal clear... ONE WORD only. Choose the right word that best suits you and please explain why... Selece is Simple. I am a simple person. I write with simplicity. I live life to the fullest but with a sense of simplicity. Although when it seems that the situation is rather complex, I work hard and take things one step at a time to make my work simpler. I don't want to be the normal average person though. I want to be someone special but at the same time maintaining that simplicity within me. So far, I think I haven't done anything to break my principle. Simplicity is beauty as some might say, as it may also lead to success.

I once asked a co-worker of mine if he could sum me up in one word. I wanted to use that word to come up with a good online name. I know what you're thinking right about now... mentalward? Nah, that name came later. My friend thought about it for a few minutes and then said "vivacious". I do have sort of a flair about me. I'm not dramatic; it's more like energetic with a very positive attitude. I thought that was an appropriate response to my question. So, I'm vivacious.

There really is a story behind my name, mentalward. My maiden name is Ward. My first name begins with an "M". I used to shop at Montgomery Wards department store and would sign my name "M. Ward". The clerks always gave me a funny look. LOL Anyway, once, while shopping in a gift shop, I saw a sign for sale that said "Mental Ward". That was it! "M. Ward" became "Mental Ward" or "mentalward". My life was crazy enough for that to fit perfectly!

Hie Selece, that's a great value to have and makes your life much easier in it's simplicity. As for me ,I would say it is 'Independent' ever since the first time I left home for my first job years ago in my early 20's. Since then I have been looking after myself. Through the years of working life and meeting other people has taught me a lot of myself and life in general. I am very self sufficient although not rich in material wise but I do get by. At least when I have problems,I don't run home crying or rely on anyone else. I like to solve my own problems then trouble anyone else. I believe in myself,take accountability for the actions and decisions that I made. It have been about 3 months since I resigned from my previous job and just recently got a part time job. In that break period, I still prefer to be at my place, doing my own stuffs in my own sweet time than go home depending on my family. Most people would have thought I have given up my place and run home to mummy and daddy. Cheers and best wishes!

Hie Sierra! You have a strong personality. And you are indeed a great person and you deal with life's issues with a strong conviction. I admire you for that. But sometimes though, no matter how independent we are, we still need someone to lean on. Right? Thanks for sharing! I appreciate it!

one word humm this is a tough one cause there is more than one word that describes me... "Caring" like i said there are a few more words to describe me, but over all i am very caring i will put others before myself and do what i can to help people when they really need it.. So that does make me a very caring person..

Giving; I like to help others when and where I can and give of myself often. Not money I don't have that to give or not much if I did I would help monetarily too. But I give of myself, my time, my heart and soul. I love to help so I think giving is the best word for me.

Wow, selece, you may have outdone yourself. Hmm one word. I don't know. I know what my friends would say. They would say "crazy". So I guess I will go with that. I don't really think they all mean that in a bad way. I am crazy though. I do crazy things. I love to make people laugh. I am a good person. I go out of my way to help people and sometimes I think I am crazy because it usually backfires and then I end up wondering why I bothered. I can be serious one minute and silly the next. So I do hear people saying to me more often then any other comment "you're crazy" but I really think they say it in a loving way, at least I hope they do!

In Singapore, we like to use the word 'Blur' to describe people who are muddle-headed. I can be quite muddle-headed at times (especially when I am daydreaming). My friends often call me 'blur' because I am sometimes muddle-headed and many times I am confused and slow to catch on things.

If I had to choose the one word that described me it would be ( careing ) for I care about everything and every one. I am the type that would do anything to help one out in the time of need if I was asked to. I like to be a friend that someone can come to and they can confide in me for what ever it may be they need. I have always been this ways and never will change.

selece I think if I only have one word it would be kind, I am a kind person, and I try to give everyone the benefit of the' doubt. .I forgive others their trespasses and hope they will forgive me mine. I am kind as I would have others be kind to me. I worked for years in a helping situation as a nurses aid, and kindness was a virtue when taking care of a sick person who is ususally frightened and afraid and doesnt know what is going to happen to him or her. I tried to soothe their fears and tell them as much as I could about what was wrong with them, without stepping on the doctors toes. Yes I would say I am a kind person and hope others will be kind to me. Kindness is a virtue notalways seen now days.

Hmm I'm having a hard time picking....I think I would say I am AMBITIOUS. It isn't good sometimes because I get to the point where I act too desperate or that my goals are a bit unrealistic. But I always tell myself to not give up. If I want it, I will strive to get it.
