    Ashamed Or Afraid?

    I know I have a personality, but it might as well not exist for there is no one around to witness it and that's all that counts right? We are nothing more than the accumulation of the actions we do. It's not what we feel or say, but what we do that defines us. So I guess I'd be...

    No Personal Opinion :(

    I'm a really quiet girl. When there's a group of people talking or discussing about something I never talk, I dont know if its because I'm very shy or because I have nothing to say; I fear I have no personal opinion about things. And whenever I have a strong opinion on something...

    Being There

    I always remember a quote from the actor Peter Sellers when he said, "I have absolutley no personality at all. I am a chameleon. When I am not playing a role, I am nobody." That, I guess, sums me up, playing a different role around different people, with no real, true personality...

    I'm Just There.

    When I'm with people, I don't do much. I talk quite often, but it's just noise. Nothing funny or quotable. I don't know what lead to me being this way. I don't have much confidence...but neither do all the "amazing" people. I'm a huge perfectionist...that's probably it. I...

    Plain Jane.

     I feel very plain... I have no outlandish thing that makes me me, i am just really bland and dont really feel like i have a personality. Maybe its because the people around me have a massive personality and it kinda swallows up who i am or maybe i just really dont have...

    I Too Feel Like I Have No Personality

    Because of being a loner I don't think I've developed a growing personality from interacting with people. i always thought I hated people, but I think it's just a case of not knowing how to deal with people and their different personalities. I want to have a relationship but I...

    Like Water

           Yep, I too sometimes feel like I have no personality. I mean, I do have a number of character traits, but I don't really have any well-defined likes, dislikes, preferences, beliefs or opinions. Like, I don't know what my favorite color is. I...

    I feel that I have no personality.

    I find myself unable to express emotion and also unable to respond appropriately when people show me affection. Before I used to blame my discontent in social situations on the people around me, thinking that everyone was self-centered, that no one gave me an opportunity to...

    I'm Just Blah

    I feel empty. I feel alone. My moods fluxuate daily. I conform to fit in with the people I'm hanging out with. I feel dumb. I am dumb. I have no personality. When I was 16 years old, I witnessed my friend die from a horseback riding accident. I guess you can say I went though...
