    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 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...

    An Empty Shell Of A Person...

    Ok, maybe I DO have a personality because everyone does, but my problem is that I don't have an interesting personality or an attractive personality. My personality type is pretty much bland, vanilla and dull. Sure I do get lucky once in a while and can fire off a good joke or...

    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...

    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...

    All My Life

    I've jumped from social group to social group, acting like those around me, after I stoped hanging out with people, there was nothing. Just hollow nothingness, lying in bed doing nothing, feeling nothing, not even bordom, time seems to melt into the emptyness, and the day fades...

    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...

    I'm The "un" In Fun

    I've never found my niche, somewhere that feels comfortable and easy.  Being around people feels like work.  What do I say, how should I stand and I really just can't wait for it to be over so I can go back to being alone.  I'm not sure what I can't wait to come...
