You Don't See me the Way I see me.

I am an introvert. A chatty, social introvert, but an introvert none-the-less. One of the things about being an introvert is that what you see on first impression is not necessarily what you get to know when you get to know me better.

Some examples:

When you meet me you might think I am LAID BACK
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that I AM A FAIRLY GOAL-ORIENTED AND DRIVEN

When you meet me you might think I am A GOODY-GOODY TYPE
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that I AM A LOT MORE ORNERY THAN YOU EXPECT

When you meet me you might think I am PASSIVE
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that ANALYZING EVERYTHING YOU SAY AND EVERYONE AROUND ME

When you meet me you might think I am FAIRLY EVEN EMOTIONALLY
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that I AM A DRAMA KING

When you meet me you might think I am JUST A LITTLE OUT OF IT
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that SEETHING WITH ANGER

When you meet me you might think I am A DUMB JOCK
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that INTENSELY INTELLECTUAL

When you meet me you might think I am MACHO MAN
But when you really get to know me you might be suprised that ROMANTIC SAP

Do those of you that know me agree? Anything to add?

Those of you who know me only through my blog--which side do you see more?

interesting blog...I agree on all accounts. Didn't even realize some of it until years of knowing you tho - like the macho vs romantic. Another one would be how nothing seems to offend you on the surface, where in truth sometimes you are hurt and hide it well. You, like most of us, have done a good job of building a fortress around yourself to protect the real you from being hurt. Just a good blog to remind us to look at people on a deeper level...most are not what they seem at first.

I can see you both ways. Sure you come across as the things that you say we see, but I think in some of the ways you comment, at least on my blog, I can see the other things too.

I like ya just the way you are!

Very Interesting blog,Padre. Yes, I am surprised because I have only been bloging for a few weeks. I though you were extremely nice, but now I think that you are extremely nice and very interesting!
