Both....depending on my mood and attitude and the people perceiving me, at the time. I've been told I come off one way or the other by different people on different occasions. I also believe this is the case with just about everyone.......Stop and think about it.
sorry I suffer from dyslexic fingers..and don't double check..the " I " is to close to the " O" on my keyboard....thanks for reading..at least I know there is at least one person out there taking note..loved your comment...
I believe I appear standoffish in public. I am always getting comments like, "Smile, it can't be that bad." I just tell them that is just my face and it is true. I can be hopping happy on the inside but my face tends to look dour...sad because I don't feel that way. i look depressed when I am not.
Like Daughter of Maat is has often been perceived as arrogance when in fact it really isn't.
I know how I come across - I come across as both, or either, depending on my mood. When I'm in a good and sociable mood my eyes are wide open and my smile is friendly and inviting, and I laugh a lot. However, when I'm in a less open mood I know that my nose tilts up in the air a little bit, and I raise one eyebrow and am definitely standoffish - I wouldn't talk to me when I look like that, looking down on the world! It passes quickly, but I know that I do it because I do it on purpose to scare people away when I want to be left alone I've done it since I was a child - I think my mum used to find it a little embarrassing!
Since I am a quiet person (except at times when I can cut the fool), some assume I am standoffish and stuck up. Yet, for those who truly take the time to get to know me, they find me refreshing, funny and sweet. It's just a matter of getting to know me. I won't be liked by all I know, yet I be as polite as I can be.
Hopefully I come across as both...this way if I appear " standoffish" they won't come over and start an unintelligent conversation about the " Kardashians".. On the other hand I hope to perceived as " approachable" if they want to give me money...or a gift of some sort...or hunger for my words of eliquent substance... I did this just to see if anyone really reads what other have to say regarding these questions...have a fun day...
I think I am approachable as I have always been an extrovert. People always talk to me, in grocery lines or anywhere. I found things to be that way when I was in nursing. It was amazing sometimes the things people would tell me.I am smiling much more often than frowning, so maybe that is why.
In an art gallery I am very approachable. At the movies I am also very approachable. At a concert I would tend to be lost at sea because music without visuals to beef it up leaves me lost at sea. Hence I would be a tad standoffish though I wouldn't mean to be.
