Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
I don't say this to toot my own horn, but I am a pretty funny person. If you see me at a gathering there will probably be a few people around me laughing. But I am not an extrovert. I am actually a very private introvert and joking about politics or the weather or whatever the kardashians are up to is a very good shield to keep people at a distance. On the one hand, their memory of me is positive-how charming and how funny I am. But on the other hand, they leave the party knowing absolutely nothing personal about me and that is just how I like it.
