Are you good in hiding your feelings?

I am not. Whenever I am happy, mad or sad it's written all over my face. People can really tell. There are times that I wish that I am good in concealing my feelings. How about you? Are you good in giving a poker face or a blank expression that does not reveal anything?

In a professional setting I am pretty good at hiding my feelings but not so much at home...and especially around my husband. He can read me very well and can tell if I'm irritated or upset about something, even if I try my hardest to hide it.

At least your good at it in a professional setting. At times I really can't hide my feelings specially when I am upset at work but I always tell myself to just stay calm, cool and composed.

I think i am, especially when i'm angry. People around me usually do not know that i'm already angry. They said that i'm an ok person since they seldom see me get angry but in fact i get angry easily. About being happy, i just smile.

I am not good at hiding my feelings. I can't hide my feelings from people who are close to me. For example my close friends and my husband. I can hide it from some of my colleagues or people whom I am not that close. My husband is very good at understanding me. When I get irritated about his actions, I immediately become gloomy. He realizes my irritation before actually I realize it.

I don't really hide my feelings very well, however I do have the ability to turn them off when I need to. My ability to do this has lead some people to believe that I am cold-hearted, and I do have the ability to be, but as a general rule, I am not cold-hearted at all.

well i don't have an expressive face ,so i can hide my feelings and that's wat i do most of the time.u express urself only in fornt of the people who u think are worth of knowing ur feelings .so there's no point showing ur feelings to each and every person on the planet

i'm able to hold my feeling. whenever i am angry, sad or happy. I try to not too overacted. I am a melancholic type person who never shows directly what i want to. But when someone has known me for a long time, they will be able to know what feeling that i always try to hide.

I never conceal my feelings when it is facing my love(my family,my boy friend).It's comfortable and happy to express my emotion,coz they will react their care to me. I always give a poker face in work.No one knows what I think.I think it's better to hide my feelings.Coz work is work.If you show much feelings,it may bring you trouble sometime.

Just the same. I cannot ever hide out my feelings. either online or offline. Why should I be diplomatic at all? But, yes. because of this straight forward and unrelenting behavior, I have not made good leads in my friends. i AM forever considered with care. In fact, I am always dealed as if I am FRAGILE, and I enjoy the attention, to be frank. I have some more friends then. Thanks.

It used to be the same with me few years back---somehow i managed to get hold of being stubborn---it isn't recommendable to show our feelings that quickly as people might take advantage of it and you would be a open book then which means nothing would be left to explore you.It might create some problems in our dates though---too early to exhibit your feelings for him.great day.

I do. It is something I am used to doing. I should set aside emotions to take the best and most practical choice in leading this life of mine. I don't want emotions to win over my mind.It ruins.
