questionswho are you?


Loved by dogs, trusted by children, generally a nice person with a streak of smart-ass running right smack down the middle.
Introvert (which is not the same thing as being shy). This is who I am.


Isn't this survey skewed before it begins?

You're going to get more responses from people that are not private. Those that are private do not respond to let you know that they are private. If they do, then they aren't really private people.


Who, who, who, who?



Hell if I know, haven't figured it out yet....


Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog!


@lavikinga: Most people considered introvert are just quiet voices in a loud mouthed world. :)


gmwhit....I AM YOUR FATHER....


@xdavex: Oh, I can be a mouthy broad when I have to ;) Being statuesque makes it even more intimidating.


I'm a really tired middle aged woman who's been trying (poorly, I might add) to sleep the guest room while her bedroom is getting a makeover. It's been a week. It's rumored that I may be getting a little cranky.


I'm an entrepreneurial gypsy, at the second phase of constructing and cultivating future homes for my future family in three or more countries.


If I told you, I'd have to kill you. :(


Who am I? Who am I? I'm Jean Valjean!


I don't keep many things about myself completely secret, but it makes me uneasy when one person knows too much about me.


"I am," I said
To no one there
An no one heard at all
Not even the chair
"I am," I cried
"I am," said I
And I am lost, and I can't even say why
Leavin' me lonely still


“Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”


I am a boot-wearing Texas Liberal. Contradiction. Like Starbursts.


@zippy the pinhead: Dammit. That's going to be in my head all day now!


I am what I am....

Older than the mountains, Younger than the trees...


I am...
sorry that your serious question is being met with mostly joke replies. (even though they are LOL worthy)

I'm not really an introvert, as I enjoy being out with my peeps, but I don't put personal stuff or private thoughts"out there" for anyone to read. I think it's quite short-sighted and really, I don't want to read it from others, why would I expect otherwise from them?

here is my joke response:
I am that is.

I was recently described as "Silent, but deadly" by one of my girlfriend's inebriated cousins ... so I'll go with that. Also the following quote from a Ben Roethlisberger interview that he did with The Sporting News a few years back sums me up rather well too:

"SN: What's the biggest misperception fans have of Ben Roethlisberger?
ROETHLISBERGER: Sometimes people think that because I'm a quiet, internal person and really don't let myself go until you get to know me, they take that as me being stuck up or thinking I'm better than everybody else. And really that's just my type of personality. I'm a quiet person, and I'm not going to let just anybody into my life and know who I am.

SN: Are you guarded?
ROETHLISBERGER: Absolutely. You have to be."


I am an inefficient matter to energy conversion machine.


@lavikinga: 100% the same as me. I would describe myself the same way.


Master Yu: May I help you?
Detective James Carter: I'll be asking the questions old man. Who are you?
Master Yu: Yu.
Detective James Carter: No, not me. You.
Master Yu: Yes, I'm Yu.
Detective James Carter: Are you deaf?
Master Yu: No. Yu is blind.
Detective James Carter: I'm not blind. You blind.
Master Yu: That is what I just said.
Detective James Carter: You just said what?
Master Yu: I did not say what, I said Yu.
Detective James Carter: That's what I'm asking you.
Master Yu: And Yu is answering.
Detective James Carter: Shut up!
Detective James Carter: You!
Master Yu: Yes?
Detective James Carter: Not you. Him! What's your name?
Mi: Mi.
Detective James Carter: Yes, you.
Mi: I'm Mi.
Master Yu: He's Mi and I'm Yu.
Detective James Carter: And I'm about to whoop your old ass man because I am sick of playing games!


I don't mind the humorous answers at all! :-D Didn't intend for this to be a deep philosophical discussion. The question came to me while watching a Dr. Oz show. His guests related personal, mostly embarrassing, things that had happened to them. The audience then voted whether they should/should not share this type of info. Some were hysterical; I roared w/laughter. Some were things that I might not even tell a close friend or relative...let alone broadcast it on national tv. O-o

As I said, I consider myself a private person. Pretty much keep my cards close to my chest(don't go there, okay?). Love to laugh; listen to music. Have been told I'm eccentric. Probably am. Very opinionated. A cat person, though I like dogs. Terrified of snakes. Definitely wordy. :-/

Thanks to each of you for answering. I'm enjoying the giggles. And the non-giggles, too!

TL;DR ? Not kidding - Get off my lawn!!


@zapp brannigan: I was wondering when someone would pull that one. :D


@subether: I was suprised noone said it. I had to do a find to make sure though.


i'm the conductor of the whimsy train.


I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

~ Emily Dickinson


@jimeezlady: that was the poem that popped into my mind too. i recited that poem for eighth grade poetry recital.


Who are YOU?!?! Were you followed?


I am me. Really nobody special. The crazy cat lady, yeah. The super-nice and generous one that is bound to be taken advantage of....


I am the great and powerful OZ!


Uncomplicated. If someone has to stay till it's over, no matter how bad it gets, I'll be there. If doing the right thing means it may be unpleasant with no obvious payoff and no end in sight, I'll be there. Life ain't always fun, but it's never boring- if you're doing it right.


And, can't end this w/o Who Can It Be Now?.

If nothing else, do you not love the sax?
