3."I am one of the most shy people you will ever meet. I switched grocery stores because the cashiers started to recognize me and wanted to chit-chat. I didn’t make one friend in college because I kept to myself. However, I am very successful at work because I know that if I don’t put myself out there and act confident, I won’t advance."
10."I fake interest. A lot of the time when it seems like I'm listening and interested in what you're saying I'm not. A lot of the time I really don't give a fuck."
11."I pretend I'm clueless a lot. It could be about work, or even just about something in life. You learn a lot about the person if you act clueless about something you're quite familiar with and they're trying to BS you with what they 'know' very little about."
13."Being cheerful in a social situation that I absolutely don't want to be in."
14."Impartiality. Some of my friends go to me for advice thinking I'm this calm, collected, wise, third party advisor. Admittedly, as much as I want to help them, I have my own biases and terrible advice to give."
17."Being friendly to acquaintances. I have enough friends. My neighbors are really chatty and I just want to get into my house and not talk to anyone. I have to talk to people all day at work — when I'm finished, I don't want to stand in front of my house and make awkward small talk for an hour. But I do anyway because I don't want to be rude."
