No Big Ego

It seems selfish.  It may not be under some circumstances, though.  I do not usually have too much to say about myself, either.  I would much rather learn things about other people.  That is because they are usually more interesting.  I enjoy thinking about what the person says, and asking questions.  I usually cannot seem to get a word in edgewise.  I may seem boring upon first impression, but once you get inside, I am very interesting.

It's not selfish. Although you may find that the people you think you know really well barely know you at all, and that's never a fun discovery. I'm really the same way about this as you. I write down my thoughts in notebooks, on sites like this or facebook or whatever, or just think them over in my head when I'm alone. But when I'm talking to someone, I generally ask questions and let them talk. Most of the time, I like it that way, but sometimes I just really want to say something, but the other person just keeps talking and I don't want to interrupt him or her. But I really don't have much to say about myself when I'm talking to people, and if they do ask me something, I usually answer the question, then turn the focus back on them. If I talk to long, I feel like I'm boring them, but I really want to hear what they have to say, so I listen and learn about them. So it's not selfish. Just watch out that you don't share too little of yourself. Friendships are two-way streets, and you can know them like the back of your hand, but that doesn't mean to much to them if they barely know you.
