Hi, Mylotters! What will you say if someone ask you to describe about yourself, your personality? For me it's difficult to describe about myself, not physically but personally. I can measure how I am is from my friends' opinion. They said that I'm a warm person, nice, friendly and very talkative. But they also say that I am stubborn, don't wanna be beaten in a debate and very logic. I think I can take all their opinion about me cos I think that is the way I am. What about you, Mylotters..How do you describe yourself? and what people say most about yourself? thanks for sharing and happy mylotting..!!

For me, most people would say that I am shy, introverted and very quiet (or, if put in another way, "a man of few words" ). And I do agree that is my personality, but only if I am dealing with people I am not entirely familiar with. Otherwise, in general, I am very friendly, caring, emphatic, and helpful.

for me it's okay if a man is quiet. I will lose my interest to a man who are very talkative..LOL..quiet man looks so cool for me. quiet is good as long as he is not too closed with others. we are human who need to share something with others no matter what. BTW, I think you're my type..LOL..do you mind? I hope you don't..:)

I try to be nice, actually, I'm pretty nice, but that doesn't mean I'm not strange too... I'm a "crazy cat lady" and a weirdo science fiction fan

yeah..we are free to be what we want to be as long as it won't bother others life..I try to be nice everyday cos I do care to what people say about me. but it's so tiring cos I want to be myself not always try to make others happy. I want to be a strong person who are able to say no whenever it needed..#sigh..

Hello humairaku! If you ask me to describe myself, I would say that I am friendly. I never knew that I am friendly until I was in Grade 6 when our teacher gave us a questionnaire. It turned out to be a survey on who among us her students are most friendly based on the questions that was given. When she got the results, she announced in class my name and one of my classmates name who was often mentioned as approachable, fun to get along with, helpful, etc. It was flattering and I was surprised because I never thought it that way. I am also talkative and I easily get along with others even those difficult ones. Although I love to talk I also enjoy listening to others because I believed that I learned a lot. My close friends often shared with me their dreams, problems and sometimes I am just there listening and give advices if they ask me. I am a people person and I enjoy the company of others. So, I am happy that even though I spend some of my time alone, I don't feel that alone because Mylot gave me a chance to make friends with others and interact as well online. I don't feel so alone during these times. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

I think we have similar characters then..LOL..I like to e nice to others. I can't understand to people who are always rude to others. don't they know that they must need other people someday? so why don't they treat others well? yeah, there are so many types of people in the world. thank God you are a good person. what about your weakness? do you think you have weakness? :)

Weakness! Yes, I have several weaknesses like I sometimes find it hard to say "No" to my friends that sometimes I get overwhelmed. But I really enjoy doing favors for my friend and I don't find it troublesome or burden. Another weakness is that I tend to please others that sometimes I got lost and I find it hard what I like and what I don't because I am busy making others happy. At least for now, I am aware and awareness is very important. I see to it that I don't neglect myself. This is very important because I cannot love others if I don't love myself. I cannot give something that I don't have. Thanks!

hey..our weaknesses are also similar too..what a nice coincidence, right? LOL.. It's also hard for me to say no if my friends ask my help, whereas it sometimes becomes my own burden. I have m won business and it's not few but many, so when somebody ask my help and I couldn't say no it's like a blunder to myself. it's bad habit of course but just like you I only want to make others happy no matter how sorrow I am..what a pity I am.. I ever tried to reject my friend's asking of help but then I regretted cos I think my friend turn bad to me..I'm so weak I think and it actually kills myself..:(

The very first thought when people see me is that I'm a very quiet person. Then, when they start talking to me, they will say I'm a very friendly, lively, kind and cheerful person. Next, when they get to know me better, they will say I'm too smart, too logic, too idealist, too stubborn, too crazy. Lol. I never feel bad about what people say about me because this is me, this is who I am. I will try to feel what people feel as long as it is logical. I never stand talking to silly people who can't think with their brains. I have heart, but I don't use it to think. That's why some people call me selfish. But I don't give a damn. They don't know me well if they still think like that. So if they want to be jealous of me, it's their problem. I just know when to use my brain and when to use my heart. :)

mm..I think you're a very interesting person cos you have some phases in your characters based on people who know you. I mean, I couldn't be like it. I think no matter when people know me, I'm just the same like they knew me for the first time..LOL..I like your spirit about ignoring whatever people said about you cos I'm a very sensitive person. I always think to whatever people said about me. If it's good, I can take it easily (yeah, of course..LOL), but if they said something bad about me, maybe I won't be able to sleep along the night.. One of y friends ever told me that I like to take everything in my life on a hard way. She's my best friend and she has similar characters like you. She often gives me advice about how to be a more confident person. But I think I won't ever be like her cos she is so so confident with everything she said and done like she has no heart feeling. LOL. But, I do like her and I think I need to be like her to make my life easier and lighter..

Lol. You should keep a friend like that. :) Seriously. Sure will make you feel better. But not all people show their problems. She may be smiling, but who knows what's inside? But the good part is, she doesn't show it to people. I mean, that's me who's I'm talking about. That's if I were her. Lol. I have problems, I can be sad, but what's the point of showing it to people? Someone told me that I make people around me pumped up and smile. Well, thank God for that, and I'm glad doing it. So I keep on doing it. I think about what people say about me, but when those people are some a**h***s who think they know me, then I'll make a pass. :D Why bother thinking about what those jealous people say about me? It'll just ruin my days. So, I think u should do that too. :)

wew..she must be very proud knowing you say like this about my best friend..LOL..yeah, I will keep her. We ever had a quarrel or something but it's just like a romanticism happened between us. for you, mm..I think it's also necessary for you to think about yourself too. I mean it's okay if you like to pump up people around them and make them smiling, but you should think about your own happiness as well. being expressive doesn't mean that we are spoil right? yeah, maybe you have close friend or another place to tell about your problems, and there you can cry as long as you want. so it's okay then. Or maybe you're a kind of person who like to make other happy but you don't care with your own happiness? so you're a mother Theresa then! LOL.

Well, it one of the tricky question during job interview as well. We must be careful when describe ourselves since the interviewer able to guess our personality whether fit to the offered job or not. I usually will describe general comments about my personality just like what my friends always says about me.We must be honest during job interview otherwise we facing difficulty later on when get accepted.

but I am not interviewing you, my friend..LOL.. I also depend on what my friend said about me to measure myself (I hope they are honest telling me the truth about me..LOL). I know some of my strengths and weaknesses like I'm pretty smart in one side but could be so dumb in another side. LOL. I'm easy to help people (but this also becomes my weakness in same time cos I couldn't say no to every help they ask me..#sigh). My husband said that it's exciting talking with me (I think I'm quite warm and easy going, some of my friends tell the same thing about me). I'm also so so talkative, I don't why I like talk too much. sometimes it becomes my strength cos I can be an icebreaker but sometime it becomes a boomerang for myself cos I talk too much about something. but everything I ma, I love myself..

LOL..that's why people call you playboy cos you flirt all girls you met..LOL..maybe you are so charming that girls like to be around you.. I like guy who is quiet than a guy who is talkative. For me talkativeness is only for girls, so it's weird if I found a guy who is very talkative. A quiet guy always makes me curious..:p

Hi humairaku, I find difficult to describe myself as well, for I wonder whether others would agree with what I'm describing I enjoy listening to others description about me no matter it's positive or negative. From the people who like to get along with me and have lots to share with during gathering or occasion I have confidence that I'm friendly and are welcome Happy posting and have a nice day!

I think I'm like you too Ikbooi..:) People always have good side and bad side, so do we..I am a very stubborn person and also very selfish. Those are my biggest weaknesses, and I admit that. I don't care of every advise I got cos I think that I can do and be everything I want. Sure it is so wrong. But after I got married those bad things disappear slowly cos my husband gave very good influence to me so I'm a better person today. Marrying taught me how to share something and accept people weakness. And the most important, marrying also taught me that everything is not always like what we want. It really reduces my selfish and ego.

I feel narcissistic when I talk about myself in any manner, even if it's not necessarily "good" things about myself. Because of this, I also usually turn to my friends when it comes to describing my personality. If I had to describe myself, though, I would probably say that I'm kind of a jerk, but I mean well and will help out my friends whenever I can. I'm extremely hard-working because I've come from a poor family, so I know that in order to have a good life in the future, I have to work hard at it now. I also just want to have fun too, though, and I'm very social. I want everyone to have a good time!

I think you're great cos you can describe yourself very well. it means that yo know yourself well too..it's cool for me..not all people like you cos knowing and understanding self are difficult to do..so if you can give value to yourself, it must be cool for me cos it's difficult for me to understand myself..LOL.. I think you're not too narcissistic cos your personality is quite balance between the good ones and the bad ones..LOL..

I also found it difficult to explain about myself. Which could explain, how I am, is someone else. Because, other people who can judge, what kind of person I am. Some people say, I was the one who is not assertive, and always relented, and would not fight the desire.

yeah, we act just like the way we are and let others measure us. people's opinion are very important to be our limitation. they sometimes could say precisely about our personality. I'm so glad if there is someone told me that I was wrong and I should be like this or that. I have some friends who tell me who really I am, and they tell it on a modest way. It's a good criticism, they don't want to hurt me but they only want make me to be a better person..:)

This question is most of the time the first question asked during job interview. My usual response to this is a combination of how other people sees me and how I see myself. My friend would normally say the same thing that you were told by your friends. They will tell me I am warm, friendly and talkative. However, when it comes to my description of my self I would normally say that I m ambitious courageous and willing to fight for my love ones in every right way possible. IF you actually know yourself well, you will not find this question very hard to answer as I wasable to do it on several occasions.

what my friends say are so true. That's the way I am..I'm warm and open people, I don't hesitate to greet someone new, and I can start a conversation with someone I never knew before very easily. I like talking with people about everything. I like sharing information and I like reading very much. And my biggest weakness is maybe my stone head. It's hard for someone to convince me. I think I can be very nice as a friend but my spouse must be very patient to face me and adapted with my stone head..LOL..yeah, I think I know about myself, but sometimes I need someone else to tell me how I am exactly, to build stronger character and to be better person in the future..:)

Good things about me would be always happy , not talkative ( i find it good cuz some people are way too annoying and dont know what they are talking ) , logical and dk thats what i think for now . But i get easy pissed , i'm yelling without noticing sometimes , i'm stubborn , i'm bad at loosing :) Well and lots of other things . But well to discribe myself sounds little strange . It might be bits off far from that for some people but thats how i see myself for what i know about myself :)
