I think i'm reasonably cheerful by nature,i'd like to be thought of as someone who can be trusted.One of y big faults is that i don't pay enough attention to details. But,i overheard someone the other day saying that i was moody and unpredictable.I may look dull and uninteresting,but you will be surprised when you get to know me better. I wish i had a more confident personality. Do you give others o good impression?

Its up to you. If you feel you are the sort of person that can get along with people of different disposition you would but otherwise it is difficult to get along. You have to come down to compromise with them for all are not of same nature. If you are short tempered one you would fail miserably. For myself I do not think I would be able to.

I get along with others except when I am angry at that time rarely anyone comes in front of me and everyone knows that after few moments I would be my usual cheerful self then people come in front. So when in good mood I get along with everybody and in foul mood with none.

first of all its really very important how well do you get along with yur self, if you can't get well along with your own no matter what you do , you will never get well with other. i personally feel that once behaviour & attitude always counts. you got to be affirmative in your ways.. then you will always find smooth sailing

I think I can get along with others pretty well. I always keep in mind what I had learned during my college years, not all person are the same. Most people are unique in their own way. Sometimes misunderstanding a person is a result of expectations that we give them. We expect them to be like others when in fact each has their own ways and is never similar to another. In this way, I am able to cope with diversity of people and may be able to interact from the most disliked people to the famous people. And the thing I learned about interacting, though it's hard, in order to survive and deal with different people you need to respect them. Respect what they want and how they like it done. For instance on people who does not want to speak with me, I don't insist myself to him/her, instead I wait for them to loosen up. I don't actually care how people thinks about me because thinking on what others has to say about you is like letting them dictate to you what you should and should not be.

Frankly speaking, I do get along with the friends who do not have conflict of interest with me. I think most of the people do like me, because this is the nature of human. Happy mylotting!

I usually get along well with others, but I have a very low tolerance for stupidity. I don't give a person very many chances to screw me over. I believe in the saying, "fool me once...shame on you..fool me TWICE...shame on ME." I will do almost anything I can to help someone as long as they are good to me. However, once they screw up, I am done with them. I may give them a second chance ONCE...but if there is a need for me to give them another chance after that, they may as well leave town and never talk to me again, because I will be done with them for good. Other than that, however, I am pretty easy-going and easy to get along with. I like to laugh and have a good time...just don't piss me off. LOL I can be a person's best friend, but I can also turn really cold-hearted very quickly...I have always been blessed with the ability to turn my emotions off and on like a switch...This has proven useful on more than one occasion.

You will get a lot of friends if you have a sincere heart.

yes i think i do. mostly because they think i have a great sense of humour and always smiling. another thing thats inbuilt in me is to listen.. i mean truly listen to wot others are saying, rather than talk over them. all my friends appreciate this. u will become more confident, wxc... just keep at it, and be genuine. take care

My advise for you is be your self, and to be open minded....love your self and people will appreciate you more... don't listen to what people a re saying behind your back it will only lessen your confidence, take it as way to improve your self...and always be humble....

I think, of course my friend tell me so, that I can give others good impressing that I am worthwhile to trust. I believe the most important is that “As distance tests a horse's strength, so time can reveals a man's heart.” In this sense, the first impression is not important and we can prove in the near future. Thank you for your topic!

wow! and i thought i was the only one. i never give a good impression. i guess it's the way i look. all my friends didn't like me when they saw me. it's only after getting to know me that we are stuck as friends. i have been told by many that whne the first time they saw me, they thought i look stuck up, proud, arrogant. But i am nothing like that. Just too bad I'm stuck with this face. Then again, it's more important that I love myself, the good and the bad. At least I now know that only people who are sincere in making friends with me will stick around to know me better.

I believe I give a good Impression on other people, but at the same time as I have lots of friends it is only a few of them I really care about. I think some people find me to honest sometimes but that is how I want others to be towards me. I don't know your age but I think confidence is also something that comes with age, I am 30 and I am a lot more confident now then when I was 18 (even though I probably pretended I was more confidant back than). I know my closest friends trust me and I get really well along with people that are "themselves" and not pretending to be what they are not.

Oh,I think I do that well.I always talk with somebody with a smile and friendly accent,so they all think I am easy to get along with.But that's not enough,I must improve the ability of doing something important,this will give others a good impression.It's only my opinion.

The first rule is, never worry about what others think of you after all it is only an opinion. I get along well with others at least I think I do and that is all that counts, having that mindset I get along with anybody that makes the effort to get along with me so it is a two way thing. I know first impressions in this world do count but they are not everything, sometimes you just have to look beyond the cover of a book.

I think that i am soft by nature and have more patience, i did hear from my friends and colleagues even that I am calm and composed by nature, I am so happy whenever I hear something positive about me, and ofcourse am not so sad either if anyone says negative about me, i try to take that even in a positive way, in other words , I enjoy both good and bad about me.

I am not sure what others think. I get along with most people, some people just don't like to get along with others. Those I steer clear of. I try to be the best friend I can be, and try to mind my own business.
