    I've gotten the full spectrum. Because of that I don't generally place any weight on any such feedback, because I will literally hear two opposite things. My conclusion is that it's a reflection of the speaker at almost all times.

    I see myself as about 99 out of 100 on the introvert scale, but this throws people because I'm not really shy and can public speak. Similarly, some people say I'm agreeable because most shit humans deal with on a day to day basis isn't worth taking a stand on, whereas I've just recently been told that I'm difficult to work with because a certain firm the business has hired as experts are frauds and I don't just agree and do everything they say.

    In a recent conversation with my dad, I labled myself 1) a satanist and 2) an anarcho-socialist. He's a good citizen and after mulling this over fired back, "sounds more like you're an antagonist." I had no further response.

    Haha. A socialist told me, "I don't know if you're a leftist. I think you're just weird."

    I'm pretty sure people think I'm weird. I'm just not sure how bad it is.

    Yea. Later I realized I may have pushed it too far. I said something ike, "rich whites orginally hired poor whites, aka police, to defend their private property from disenfranchised minorities and other poor." My dad's brother is a police officer. And don't get me wrong I love the both of them, but what followed was some unpleasent chest-beating, not worth reinvoking.

    I've been called affable more than once.

    Each time, I thought they were joking and had to confirm that they were serious.

    I'm always amazed when I find out people like me. I only trust feedback or opinions from those who I have let my guard down with. Everyone else's opinion of me is mostly irrelevant, unless it happens to strike me as curious and worthy of consideration.

    I guess it depends on where the feed back is coming from.

    In person, others tend to give convoluted opinions of myself. From well mannered, kind hearted (normally, due to my tendency to do random, surprising acts of kindness and the fact that I tend to not be offensive to strangers IRL.) Other call me Shy or anti-social because I spend most of my time only or at home with my wife and dogs. I was called a nerd once (It was one of my best teen days). Others have called me robotic and unempathetic. Most, people that have taken the time to get to know me tend to have at least a moderately positive opinion of me (though that make sense since they took the time to get to know me well and that can be difficult for many).

    Online people tend to underestimate my Intelligence and assume that I am somehow phony. However, the reactions do vary from the mild I don't care to the trolls that follow me around a post insults when ever I type something.

    How is this different from who I am.
    1. I not anti-social as in I don't like people. I do like people I just normally like spending time by myself more.
    2. I do have feelings I just don't value them.
    3. I am intelligent enough to have many academic hobbies even if I can't say I am an expert on anything.
    4. Well, I am kind of a nerd, but generally, others don't point it out. I was never the kid picked on at school for doing nerdy things.
    5. My, kindness isn't all the surprising. When people play a significantly positive influence in my life, I feel obligated to do nice things for them when situation present themselves. I don't tend to spend time planning kind acts; I act in the moment when situations arise.
    6. Few people if any get me. This was upsetting when I was a child and cared about fitting in. However, my motivations now are more about making an impression and difference in the world. No matter if people like me or not.
