A Quick Question on Perception

How do you think other people see you?

I’ve written similar posts but it is a fascinating topic – perceptions.  Most of us think we come off this way or that but in reality people may see us quite differently. 

So, how do you think people really see you?  Is it how you see yourself?


  1. Honestly I have no idea. I know how I perceive myself but, when people tell me their thoughts on how I come across I am always baffled. USually I find myself saying, "really, you think I'm confident? Really you think I'm outgoing...huh?" lol. I think that I tend to hide my moods and insecurities so people don't know what is going on inside me..because I don't want them to. I like privacy for my heart I guess. lol

  2. Hmm probably a little of both...they probably see some things I don't since they have fresh eyes! :)

  3. This question always makes me smile. I agree with Natalie in that it's a combination of both, but it's when people who know you really well (like our boyfriends/husbands) that tell you how they see you and it confirms how you want to be seen, even if they have seen you at your worst, that's the cool part. I'll be curious to see what other bloggers think of this one!

  4. This is a great question TV! I think as I get older I have a changing perception of myself. I am not always sure what comes across to others. However, it is true that we may have very different ideas about people that are not always what they are about. I try not to conclude anything about others, because as you say, perception can be different. I hope you are well!

  5. Hmmm... I think different people see me different ways. Maybe they see me as fun, shy, mean (my kids)... I will have to think about this one some more!
