Yay! You sound a lot like me .

It really depends on what I'm doing. I can turn on the personality if I need to (when I teach certain classes) but I never go beyond me. I just become a bigger me if you will. I can be very quiet at other times and blend into the crowd. It all depends on my mood and activity.

I hate crowds but I can talk to anybody on on one. Its wierd but people tell me all sorts of stuff. Some of it Im not sure they should be telling me. Ive been told Im colorful but I dont see it. Truthfully I think Im pretty boring. Boring is good tho.
haha, this is the most intersting and honest i read so far, i was about to confess that i really am a boring and dull person, i usually to be very quiet so they thought still water run deeper lol but it's not always the case, i just failed to be quick and witty. so my friend trust me and told me a lot their little dirty secrets, lol. but i do keep secrets

I do NOT have the gift of gab at all. I have to read books on how to have conversations with people..lol Usually I am quiet and I listen to people. I'm not one to share a lot of details with people unless I like them a lot. I "wish" my personality were more colorful but sometimes I like being solitary and anti-social.

I definitely have the gift of gab, but I am by no means dynamic. I love to laugh whether it be at myself or after reading/hearing a good joke. I'm very loud and outspoken and have been known to strike up conversations with strangers. I love getting to know people and what they're all about. I have a college degree but wouldn't consider myself well educated....maybe average. Intellectuals tend to bore me as my choices of topics are pretty much pop culture related. People in my circle expect me to entertain them or keep the conversation going. When talking on the phone, if there's a pause in the conversation, people ask me if I'm still there because they think the call dropped.

My personality is divided between the dark side and the cool side. I really don't have any gifts. Am I colorful? Probably not. I primarily wear black clothing, although I'm no goth. I don't give to take chances to easily, especially when it comes to relationships.
