How would people's perceptions of you change at home/work/etc. if everybody could read your thoughts?
I imagine is be in a lot more fights.
My initial thought is that there wouldn’t be much change. I’m usually not shy about expressing myself and I had a good opinion of most of my co-workers and students. However, there have been a few people, usually my husband’s bosses, where I kept my mouth shut because I didn’t have anything good to say about them.
They would all ask me for something because they would learn I am a "push over" for those who need.
Funny, I think people would ask me less because they'd realize that I'm a lot more hostile that I appear to be (at work anyway, those people just get under my frickin skin).
So we should Avoid the ticking time bomb! I'll be careful. You can keep your box of doughnuts. I'll not ask again...
They’d understand my methods to my madness. Haha
I tend to speak my mind often, but tactfully. Things are not so tactfully put in my head, so I’m going with a net negative.
Yes, I agree, you dont need tact in your own head.
Not too much change. Mainly they would find I'm more insecure than I come across as.
I usually speak my mind however people usually think I'm being sarcastic or edgy.
So I'm really up in the air what would happen.
It would probably be a net effect of no change. I have thoughts that are both more loving and more angry/frustrated than I'm ever allowed to express publicly. So, some people would love me more and some may hate me more.
Not good - though if someone asks I usually tell what I think
I'm having an angry day today...it would not turn out well for me if my coworkers could have read my thoughts today 😬
You're doing better than me then. I don't want anyone reading my thoughts ever. There is a reason I express things the way I do and that is to be diplomatic, fair, and rational. My brain is not always on the same page as my mouth.
