well bold is not a nice term and not the opposite of quiet, outgoing is the opposite of quiet or even loud. I am neither, I am more in the middle, I am not shy, actually I am quiet, I take that back, I am just not shy. I can be loud a times, but that is not my usual self which is quiet. I am not bold, which was always considered rude where I come from.

To be bold, you don't have to be rude, I feel that being bold, you try to get what you want. I am an outgoing person. If I have my mind made up and want something then i can get bold. Because I will try to get it. That means going for what you want in Life. Ok, I am a goe getter.

it depends on what you mean by bold? do you mean say what is on your mind bold? I am learning that that sometimes for me, the best thing to say is nothing. depending on the situation. Am i a nice person, i would say yes.

Yes, Bold could mean a lot of things. When I say bold I mean going for what I want. Someone said bold is like being rude, I don't agree all depends on how you look at it.

I am a quiet person. I am not shy, but quiet until I get to know the people and situation, then look out. LOL I think it is great that you are bold and nice. I wish that I was that way. I have always wanted to have more confidence around people.

Hi Marcia-I can be both bold and quiet, it depends what situation, but I do like my own space a lot of the time-it gives me time to quieten my mind and contemplate on whatever-and sometimes just listening to the birds and nature-yet other times I can be forthright and bold in what I say to whomever and in decision making-littleowl

I don't know if I can be called either. I'm just a person who keeps to herself just about all the time. I'm a little uncomfortable with meeting strangers and often don't reach out to other people unless there is a need to. I do talk to people a lot, but only when I'm in the mood to. Some people would call me "quiet" and some would not. Usually those closest to me wouldn't call me quiet because I talk a lot.

I used to be brave, courageous and bold, and would only have quiet moments here and there. All that changed once I could no longer drive and get out of the house. I think when you're alone almost all of the time for years on end, you do eventually turn into a quieter person, even if you were a vibrant soul before. (That's my story 'n I'm stickin' to it lol) I think in some ways people who dare to be bold might have more confidence. Not every quiet person lacks confidence, but maybe for some it's true.

I am a lot more bold than I use to be. Now that I know that God is on my side, I am not as fearful as I use to be. It feels real good.

I like to think I am bold. I stand up for what I believe in and will stand by someone even when the rest of the world has turned its back on them. I'm also nice, sometimes a little too nice and get used as a doormat, but I always try to give people a chance.

It is a very good thing Marcia. I think if you have the gumption to say something, then you should have the backbone to back it up. I am very out spoken, I guess at times I can be too bold, but I do try to put things in a way that is instructional, instead of hurtful. Now that is another issue entirely, I don't think it is ever right to delibratly hurt another, and some people do it on purpose, I guess it makes them feel better about themselves.
