How would you describe yourself whenever you are being asked by someone or if they are asking tell something about yourself. How would you also describe yourself or tell something about yourself whenever you are posting it in a social networking sites. Would you just tell all your good points and not the bad ones? would you post there that sometimes you are an irresponsible person and childish sometimes at first exchange of messages with some strangers asking about some description? i would post or tell people that I am a sweet person, loving caring and honest. I am not ashamed of telling them that I get childish sometimes despite of being in the mid 20's of my life. I will tell them or post in that social site that I am seeking for a person whom I can share and relate my feelings, emotions and discuss anything and everything under the sun in an intellectual manner. How about you guys, how do you want others perceive about you?

Putting myself into words is a major feat for someone like me who sees myself as ordinary, plain and ambitious. I'm good at words, some people say, but i ran short of it when describing myself. I usually refer to the words my friends say about me. Want some rundown? First there is my sense of humor: the one thing that endears me to many of my friends. I could laugh out really loud and i believe laughter, being the best medicine, heals the ailing soul. I value my boisterousness as balance to my own caution and my occasional bluntness as antidote to my reserve. Second: my sensibility. Friends run to me for advice. I'm a walking "chamber of secrets" and so bent on keeping it that neither Voldemort nor Harry Potter could make me spill them out. I'm always up to the challenge of trying to put some sense into my friend's troubled minds during low points in their lives. Lastly, i am free-spirited. I could do things with you as long as they are clean, fun and not violative of the laws of man. I mean, i want every fun to be legitimate and not offensive to society and as long as they are private. I am not someone who's very fancy...I DON'T LOOK LIKE A MOVIESTAR so don't expect something out of the ordinary...i am just plain, simple, clear-cut, unpretentious, unfussy, uncomplicated.... Good day to you my friend! (please rate me) Thank you! :)

Usually when I'm asked I share a few points like my name a few things i love to do some accomplishments but not too much detail why would I tell you who I am when I'm better at showing you who I am, watch me how I interact, how I talk, how I speak of others, how much I smile, that I take pride in how I look and carry myself. When someone tells you who they are, believe them, I disagree watch someone and thats who they are anyone can speak of themselves in the desired way they wish so watch actions and interactions. you'll learn quickly.

I would tell that I am a full-pledged mom, loving, funny, and cool; but I have tons of tears for dramatic movies, birthday tributes and the like (no, but I have never post this last thing on my profiles..haha!). Thanks!

My life have been an open book for everyone so I guess I'm the kind of person that is open and honestly speaking a very frank person indeed and whatever I don't like or like to that person believe me I will let you know exactly whats on my mind or my opinion directly towards that person and a very loving,responsible and loyal person to the one I love most and specially with friends I care about.

Hi dear, In the present company where I am working now, is having a job application form. In this form, there is a big column asking 1) Your strengths: & 2) Your weakness: When I filled the strengths column, I write all the +points and weakness I mentioned all my -ve points. As in general, I didn't keep much attention on this question and filled something whatever I feel like. But when I gone through the interviews, they caught me on those points. The interviewer took more than 10 mts. on these topics. Why did you write this thing and that thing like so many questions and reasons. I mean to say, this is an important topic and we our self talking about has several advantages. We should evaluate our own position what I am and what are your likings and dislikes as well as our overall nature gives at a glance. So, whenever we are narrates such answers, people will consider those facts and will make judgment about us. Only thing is that it should genuine and true. Regards, Thank-s

If I were to put something on "About Me" page, I'll just post being a simple guy who loves going on trips and having lots of exciting adventures with friends, cause that's what I am. I rather not boast or say some self proclaimed stuffs or some flowery lies to boost my character up. I don't need such things, and I don't like people liking me for what I am not. It's better to have few REAL friends than being surrounded by thousands of pretend-to-be-friends.

Hi, I did encounter this question sometimes during the job interview. The interviewer may ask me this question when I just sat down into the meeting room. FOr me, I would described myself as a cheerful and responsible person. Especially in work, I will make sure I do my part on time and whatever I have promised, I have to do it. I can be childish in a way,but when comes to work, I am a serious person too. I have to see the time when to have joke and when to take things seriously. Of course, when playing with my son...I can be a very playful mother to him. We will tease each other and laugh loudly. The most important is always set a goal in your life, in order to make you to be a better person.

I would tell people I'm kind of awkward, but once you get to know me there's no chance of me ditching you. :] I am told by a bunch of people I am one of the nicest people I know, and that I am really down to earth. I'm also told literally all the time that I'm really funny and easy to talk to, and aren't very hidden from anyone, and tell everyone everything. :D

I am bubbly, loud and funny. I am caring, loving and good at listening. I have a strong faith. I could probably carry on, but I think that will do for now.

I would tell them that I am a good mother, very caring daughter and will do anything for my friends. I would also describe myself as tired and stressed out all of the time, even though that is kind of embarrassing to say to people.

When I was a child I was taught it is very bad and rude to say something positive about oneself, and it is difficult for me to do that. For example if I am on a job interview it is difficult to say that I am good for the job, because I was taught it is not polite. It is the same for most people in my generation. It is easier for me to say for example what schools I have gone to and what jobs I have had.

It depends of many things :) First i don't like new friendships which are made by accident :) I mean someone to find me in website and to write me, because we have same interests or hobbies, or look the same way. I like when friendships or contacts are made because of something. I never write too much for myself, because i don't like to describe. I'm not sure that i know myself so good, how can i say that i'm this and this and this :) No chance :) Same things when i "meet" someone and this person is interesting for me. I use little tests, with provocation, just would love to know how the other person will react. :) If i have to describe myself in some website, as i did in facebook, it will be with very simple words, something like ... friendly, positive, too serious, selfish. :) If you want to know someone ... some sentences are not enough :) For me it's better to see that person in real life - eyes ... and real voice :) Virtual friendships are strange ... because we mislead ourself that there is someone who cares about us and this person may be really likes us, but it's not enough .... for real friendship :)

well of course i would say my bad qualities and good quality, i want people to love me as i am.and i dont deceive people by lying, i like imagining things goes fantasy. i hate reality as it is it hurts much more than dreams. i like sharing my feeling to some who is willing to share theirs and i am happy to express my thoughts too. but sadly only a few have a mind like me being openly.
