A good friend of mine asked me a good question today: What does my personality consist of? She didn't bring this up in a negative light, more of a curious query. It got me thinking, what is my personality? And here is what I've come up with.
1.) I'm a laid back, take it as it comes kind of guy.
Structured life isn't for me. I can't plan my day in advance, so who is to say what I'm going to be doing in a year, a month, a week, hell. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. And that's the way I like it. I like spontaneity. If I were to get a call this second asking if I wanted to go to Europe next Wednesday, I'd be all for that shit. Ask me that a month or two ago and I'd be too hesitant to commit. I like this trait of mine.
2.) I'm a listener.
I know what I'm thinking and it doesn't interest me. I want to know what you're thinking. I bore myself, but I'm intrigued by every single word that comes out of other people's mouths. I like to give advice and I love to analyze other people's thoughts and emotions. So next time you ask me why I'm so quiet, I'm going to respond with the answer "My thoughts are boring, and I'd much rather listen to yours."
3.) I can have a strong personality when I need to.
I'm not seeking this dumb high school drama bullshit. It's immature, and even though every knows it it seems that most everyone craves it. I'm going to pick my battles, and if you try to trample all over me sooner or later I'm going to tear you a new one, and probably not when you expect it either.
4.) I'm not an independent person.
I need other people in my live to thrive. I feed off of other people's emotions. I like to open up and talk about my feelings to people, as fruity as that sounds, but in the end I don't need someone there to wipe my ass and show me the way. I like having someone there, but it's definitely not a physical need.
That's all I have come up with so far. If anyone reads this, I suggest you do the same as I have. Make a list of your traits! Find yourself! It can do nothing but good
