How Do You Tell the Truth?
If you found out someone had a crush on you (and you weren't interested), how would you react?
You'd tell the person that you think he or she is amazing, but you aren't interested in a relationship right now
You'd tell the person that you don't think the two of you would be a good match, but you hope to grow closer as friends
You'd make it very clear that you weren't interested at all. You don't want to give off any mixed signals.
When you talk about the darker elements of your past with a close friend:
You tend to brush over them completely and only focus on positive things that happened to you
You try to put what happened to you in perspective, considering both the good and the bad
You tell a brutally truthful and detailed account of what happened. You don't hold anything back.
If you have mixed feelings about a restaurant or movie, you're most likely to:
Complement it only
Both complement and criticize it
Mostly just criticize it
If you feel like a friend is avoiding you and not telling you why, you:
Would be extra nice to your friend, just in case you did anything to upset him or her
Would talk to your friend and ask if anything is going on in his or her life right now
Would talk to your friend and ask what you did wrong. If your friend refused to tell you, you would press the issue.
If you ask someone if you look silly in an outfit, what you're really looking for is:
Reassurance that you look okay
A fresh eye on what you're wearing
A brutally honest answer
Are You Compassionate Toward Yourself?
Are You Confident?
Are You a Brain?
