Good question....I guess it depends on which situation...

If I am with all my kids people probably think "Holy cow, that woman is nuts!"

I probably come across as friendly, I'm not sure...I'll ask my friends.

When I'm at my part time catering job at the university, many of the guests think that I'm a grad student there. The other week, one guest was convinced that I was a physics major!! I told her that my father thanks her very very much for the thought. lol

I've been mistaken for a grad student for many decades...

Direct and no BS, but fairly down-to-earth.

we did a thing at work where our co-workers put each other in catagories (kind of an odd team building thing) I thought I would be seen as supportive and friendly, I was seen as a leader, controling and only slightly friendly. My friends see me as strong, dependable and trusting. I see myself as shy, independent, fearful. but then again I am the only one who knows my own thoughts.
We never are as we see oursleves nor as people see us, I think we are actually someplace inbetween.

Everyone thinks that I'm really friendly and sweet, and that I'm a good listener

Shy awkward standoffish

Im the type who if u engage me in conversation and get me going im the nicest friendlisest person in the world but im not the one who initiates the conversation so if u dont initiate youd probably think im shyer then iam and not very friendly..

The funny part is i judge people for some of the same things,if i meet somebody who doesnt say hi to me or seems to be ignoring me i get paranoid and think that person automatically doesnt like me or isnt a nice person withoutthinkign maybe he or she is just shy when they meet a new person like iam so now i can sort of see why a person may have that same opinion of me even though deep down im not that way..

I think thast why i have such problem with women,if i can meet a women whos outgoign and approaches me and starts to ask me questions i can open up and they can find out what a good guy iam but because the man has to inititate and im awkward at starting the the convo i have problems getting the ball rolling..

It will depend entirely on who they are as I can be totally different depending on my perception of the other person.

the same can be said about me, but fortunately very few people see me as a negative type of person
