Sometimes people tend to see as the opposite of who we really are. It could be the impression that they make of us in the first meeting or it could also be what they hear from other people. We are misconstrued. If your are to tell us about you, what would that be? Does other sees you the way you see yourself? Share with us other peoples perception towards you. Thanks.

hello friend. just like you people see me as a snob since i don't talk that much especially to new acquaintances so they usually say i am a snob but once they know me well their perception of me changes. I think people tend to see not talking to much as not friendly. If i don't feel comfortable talking with a new acquaintance i would prefer to be quiet.

Well, a couple of persons had told me that I am frank. That I tell someone what is on my mind. But, I bet I'm not that kind. Since I fear rejection, I felt that I really find it hard to tell someone directly what's on my mind. I'm more of a people pleaser, which I believe is unhealthy.

That is true my friend other people sees us differently on how we see ourselves us. At times we are not aware of who we really are and it takes other to help us realized it. There are also times wherein we act differently with this set of people and we act in a different manner when in the company of another group. at times it is helpful to know how others sees us than what we know of. Thanks for sharing and I agree with you that being a pleaser is not healthy. have a great day!

I don't know about describing and all but i want to share a story with you. It has happened with me when my mum seriously ill. I wanted to have some leaves from my landlord's garden. i went their asking for. Since I was very sad and upset and I was feelling like crying. Well, when I went in front of them, I just closed my eyes to stop tears coming from my eyes. Well, she(land lord) thought that I was doing some kind of spell. She got scared and did exactly what I said. She was a real cruel landlord but that day she didn't even say a word to me! Yes, sometime people see you different than what you are

I have no right and could not tell any thing about myself. It is work of others to tell me truth about my living style. I try to make me attractive and handsome, but what the people think about my appearance it is not possible to know it. the mirror does not say false. so i use to come in front of mirror and I think how am i looking like.
