I'm not being type specific there, I know that many of you have your opinions of me in that regard, and I know what I know about myself. I'm wondering about something else.
Do you regard me more as open or reserved? I feel I put on facades an awful lot, in an almost instinctual manner. It sometimes comes out as mirroring or mimicry, I think I use it particularly in the early stages of knowing someone as I take in more about them, follow their reactions, find the pattern.
The other thing is, there are times when I expose more helpless parts of myself, divulge information that could put me in danger, but only really enough to throw peoples' guard down around me, as if I am then an open book, not a threat. I play dumb for the same reason. People are always easier to use when they see you as harmless.
I don't do it in a hurtful manner, it is almost explorative; a way to compare myself while partaking in a titillating game of my own, to pass the time. To make everything seem less pointless, to make things more than just going through the motions. Sometimes I just do it absent-mindedly, with very little interest, just for something to do.
These statements in themselves open me up more than I would usually allow, but I'm feeling the need for danger today. I was wondering if you all saw me as more of an open or closed book, as I think it probably influences your opinion of my type.
