Has to be a personality that in some way affects your relationship with people.

Good Traits-
Im a funny guy without having to come off as goofy. I know a lot of people who are funny but they do not know when to be serious or when their funniness could be annoying.

Im a very cool person. I dont start problems with anyone and if there are misunderstandings I address them quickly. Now its a whole different story if someone tries to start problems with me for no reason. Overall I am very easy to get along with and good at avoiding problems/drama.

What I could improve-
For me I wish I wasn't shy and better at starting and maintaining a good conversation. I tend to not click with a lot of people and that is a huge problem.

Sometimes I give off a vibe of being an unapproachable person. After meeting some people I have heard them say that I looked like a complete ******* or rude person but I cant really control what people assume of me before they get to meet me. I can't say I am not guilty of doing the same thing of assuming things about people before talking to them and then finding out their not what I thought.

You sound a bit like me. Although I can maintain a conversation pretty well, but I find it to be exhausting with a lot of people.

I'm with 5lakes too. I'm a very loyal and giving person. Two personality traits that I need to work on my willingness to express my feelings and sensitivity to people's feelings.

I am very ncie, and trusting, and giving...those are the things I need to work on..because I have been used. I need to work on my boundaries, and saying no. Of course, the only men who used me were african american...so maybe I should not date men from that race any longer. There seems to be a pattern...

my good:
im loyal, easy going, fun loving, a little on the wild/experiemental side and good at knowing where the boundries are.

my bad:
im painfully shy around people i dont know and i tend to be too submissive in many aspects of my life, i tend to put those i care about ahead of myself too much.
