Are you a "People Person"?

I am afraid i am rather not a 'Stranger people's' person.But that doesn't mean i don't like people i know well or my well wishers.I find it hard to start a conversation with a stranger or to smile at them.I just feel awkward.But i get floored by people who are very interactive,extrovert and have a happy-go-lucky personality.Unless the other person sitting next to me starts the conversation or smile at me i just sit/stand there with a robotlike face.

I see to it that i am talking to a stranger only if my mind orders me to proceed.I think we have to be little carefull in taking with strange people.But if i found such strangers to be good i will continue to talk with them.i have earned some really true and good friends in my life till now.Only if a sranger smiles at me and require any help from me i will smile.

I get along with people fairly well, I suppose. I'm not particularly shy, and I've struck up conversations with random strangers on several occasions. Smiling and nodding or waving at strangers is pretty common in Alabama, USA, where I'm from. Goes along with that whole southern hospitality thing, I suppose.

Unfortunately I am not much of people person before. I don’t really smile often as I was always gloomy. But I'm trying to, I'm just paying it forward to others because there were some people whom I don’t know but kept on smiling at me when I was really down and it really made a huge impact on me. I want to be able to return the favor to others as well. I'm starting to train myself to be more assertive- I try to initiate conversations with strangers if the situation calls for it. I'm going to have a child soon and sooner or later I will have to be assertive so I can deal better with the day to day pressures of parenthood.

Yes, since I usually travel alone. And when we are both going to become a "stranger in a strange land" to our destination. :) When I get an aisle seat for long distance flights, I also get to know who I'm seating with so that I wouldn't be shy or I would be more comfortable if I need to ask them to stand up to go to the John.
