      Well, if you have to ask, then clearly there is no point in trying to answer.

      I am always on the look-out for people who are discerning enough to figure out the answer for themselves!

    I am a good writer.

    That is the one thing I have always been sure of; I sometimes don't write to my full potential or to the level I should, but I can do a great job when I wish to.

    Everything else comes and goes - I have never had much stability in my life, whether it be family, friends, schooling or even games and hobbies I enjoy.

    Except writing.

    Sofs, I like your attitude and mentality.

    Thanks for asking about me. I believe in moving forward, anything else doesn't really interest me. Each day has to bring concrete progress, even a little bit will do. I hope to be constructive in what I do.

    With so many new writers, the world needs more good readers.

    1. richtwf profile image62
      richtwfposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Oh so true but we live in a fast-changing world where many of the latest generation don't really read much and probably spend more time reading their FB wall or someone else's FB wall! For there to be more good readers perhaps writers might need to adapt their preferred writing style to attract more readers.

      For example, nowhere days authors are producing quick reads which someone can read in one short sitting. This is great for those who don't read so much and might actually encourage them to pick up something more meatier in the future.

      Better stop here as this post should be about our best qualities and not good readers - apologise for my tangential thinking!

    ~I read a lot
    ~I listen
    ~I lean from even who write worse than me.
    ~I can generate unique ideas usually that people don't even think of as a topic to write on.
    ~I have a great imagination power

    The only thing I miss is my ability to write English.

    DoorMattnomore, thanks for filling us in about Disturbia - I knew it had to be modesty on her part (a virtue). You are a good listener, which is definitely also a virtue.

    Sofs, good to hear this thread is a positive experience. I thought it would be a little different than people recommending one another.

    Saleheensblog, your English is rapidly improving, and you've come to the right place to learn. You will get there, no problem.

    Ralwus, I find shy people very interesting. Keep us on our feet to find out what's going on in there.

            Hi.  I do not think I have any psychic abilities.  I am a salesman and I have to be able to predict the responses I receive from the questions I ask.

            I also must listen to what is said between the words to understand the exact wants and needs of my customers.

            I do not believe in inflating my persona, but I am a very good salesman.

              You must be good! A few weeks ago my husband and I went to a Mazda dealer looking to buy a new car. The guy took one look at us and didn't feel like helping us. I guess he must have read our hungry/tired faces from being at work all day and thought we were going to waste his time. Seeing that nobody was answering our questions, we left. The next day we went to another dealer and bought a brand new Mazda3. I even bought a $40 bottle of Whiskey for the salesman!

                Mazda 3 is one of the hottest cars in the country right now.

                Congratulations!!

                I am glad you bought a new one, they are almost as much money used as they are new.

                As to the salesman who disregarded your presence, I would have fired him on the spot had I been the sales manager.

                Every person that walks through the door is a potential sale, to walk away from a customer would not be tolerated.

              For a minute I thought you were Hari Seldon. A mountain lion stakes out a trail 1) because that trail has provided food in the past. 2) because the mountain lion can conceive of future success on that trail. The mountain lion can think of a future that, in time, is sure to come to pass. Doesn't make the mountain lion psychic.
