greetings to all mylot user here,i am really curious if people get easily believe on what they have heard gossips from other people,because i have a relative i know that she easily believe on gossips thought she still never know that person,i mean they/she judge a person so easily because of gossip only,because usually in gossip more on negative information and feedback of a person though no yet evidence.and i hate to those people who scattered wrong or bad information about a person they really dont know,and are you one of this people who love to gossip?what could you say about the people who always do is to gossip and ruin the life of one person?why?

Greetings. Gossip is just that. I have seen where they start out with six or more people. Pass one example from person to person and by the time you reach the sixth person the example has changed in some way. Usually gossip starts with people who has something against you or want there to be something wrong. Gossipers are not good people. They really need to find something else to do.

It is best not to do it yourself if you don't like it in others.

I think it is only in the Philippines that has a lot of gossipers. I do not know then. But of course, its too intimidating and very annoying that some people can talk and gossips behind the back of their topic and that is one of the innocent neighbor. I suggest, instead of gossiping, they should think for the right way that their lives to be prosperous and successful and not ruining the day of someone.

If I hear a gossip, I only start even thinking about believing it or not, if I know the person really well whom the gossip is about.

Hi! asliah. I don't think it's a wise idea to believe in gossipmongers. These people are fond of making up stories and trying to put other people down. Usually they are self-centered and nothing to do idiots. Don't ever try to make friends with such people coz they are good to you when you are with them but says bad things behind your back. Have a great day!

I don't listen to gossip and don't spread them, I usually know if something is a gossip from the way people tell it, but I don't believe them. Gossips are usually born from malice and most of the time they are not true. Some people believe it when they hear gossips, either because they are naive and believe everything they hear, or because they can imagine anything about others.

It is really something where it is painfully easy to see how people really easily get caught up in gossip. There is just something that is so inflaming about hearing juicy tidbits about other people and people tend to believe what they hear by what they seem, not their experiences. It is human and it is an unfortunate ingrained flaw right in many of us. There are many times where people can be harmless and it may be, until you are caught in the crossfire. It can really be stressful to be the one who is caught in the gossip chain, with things that you know are not true but people are not really able to listen to reason. This is the point where I stopped caring what people thought because it was not worth it. People will talk and people will spread rumors that get mutated more and more as it goes further along the gossip chain. It is what seems like fun with some people, that they get carried away with.

I'm not fond listening gossips.And besides most gossips are not true. I don't have patience listening to it. I just don't entertain people like gossips. And I don't mind other peoples business and vise versa.

I don't like gossip, it just lost time and no worth information from it. I never participate in the gossip.

Hi asliah. I don't easily believe in a gossip and I am into the person who spreads gossip. It ruins the fame of people, which is a very bad thing to do. But in our daily life, we do meet such people who spreads gossip. I usually ignore them for their gossip. This kind of people cause trouble to others. Quite often I wonder what's the reason behind their gossip. Thanks for your discussion. Take care.

I don't. Those are rumors and most probably are not true not unless I myself have seen the truth in it. I don't like gossip nor do I like doing it. Gossips ruins lives because it lowers down the self esteem of the person being talked about. People who do gossip or loves to gossip because they don't have anything to do with their lives but to talk about others lives. Which is actually bad. Remember, what goes around come around so if you start a gossip, you might end up also being the subject of the gossip.

Hello to all. I don't have to avoid gossiping because I don't like doing it in the first place. But sometimes there's nothing I can do when I am in the company of people who gissips. In such situatuons, I just make fun out of it. I often laugh about it because I don't easily believe i what's being said in gossips. The only gossip that I like are celebrity gossips. Its kind of fun for me. But even celebrity gossips, I don't believe about it easily

there are believable gossips, that's why people believe them. however, gossips by nature are not going to bring any good. they create stories that exaggerate the situations to stir attention and bring down the persons who the subjects of the gossip. some people continuously engage with gossiping like it is their habit. there is even an industry that thrives because of gossip - showbusiness talk shows.

i think i am that type of a person who easily believe. when i know some news then i think that it is true. and when it is about person i love i try to recognise if it is right. but then i do not even have a thought that it might have been a gossip. :) so then everything happens good. by the way, i wanted to watch "gossip girl" it is very interesting i think. i would recommed you. :)

No, I don't listen to gossip for several reasons; I am too busy to get involved in squabbles and gossip and you never know whether the gossip you actually hear is what has happened. You were not there so you are not involved and you can't comment. Listening to gossip and then repeating it to someone else is bad as you can potentially destroy someone's reputation to the point where the person loses his or her job - and all because you were nosy and got involved. It is better to steer clear of gossips in the home and in the workplace.
