Fascinating People

In Uncategorized on January 31, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Some people are just truly fascinating. They have a “je ne sais quois”, a quiet confidence you can’t quite put your finger on. Is it because they withhold information from you? Or is it simply because they know how to listen intently, therefore, by making you feel important, your estimation of them increases? In a friend’s word, when asked on this, “Yes.”
Apparently it’s a little of column A and a little of column B. I wonder if I am that fascinating person to anyone? I’d wager not, as I’m horrible at keeping my mouth shut. It often takes all I have no to interrupt or run away with the conversation.
Some of them will be fascinating for the stories they tell, that is true. However, have you noticed that people who constantly tell stories quickly fall from fascinating to annoying, as they plague you with yet another tale of another adventure that you secretly wish you’d partook of? Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself in a social situation is to keep your words few and your ears open. Then you to may be the fascinating person.
