Just wondering how people see this... There is no middle option, because I only want to know which of the above two, specifically, people at least LEAN more toward. (a middle option would just be a vote gravity-well)

When socializing in an environment

I'm with you so far.


... with no real conversation going...

Do you mean no one is talking, or do you mean that the talk is "superficial and meaningless"?

I answered no, because in such an instance I would be bored or desirous of leaving, both negative emotions.

I can't help but send positive vibes. I'm this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI58wj4b4g0).

I would send true feelings/vibes. But they might be expressed as, "OK, what's next?"

I'd always be vibing authentically, but my formal ones aren't just for show. So I'd be formal in a more formal situation, casual where that's what you do, etc. It's all authentic.

Unless I'm only being polite because smacking someone just isn't done in the situation ;)

My 23-year-old niece told me that I have "no vibe". Vibeless, I guess you could say.

She also said that I have "no groove", whatever that means. Grooveless.:Shrug:

:D I bet you got soul, Vince. Tell her that! Listen to a little Muddy Waters, first, though. You have to say it just right ;)

Superficial and meaningless.

Thanks for the input so far, all. :)

No vibe, no groove. No soul, either. I'm pathetic! :e2bummed:

I have no clue. Someone else would have to tell me if I do or not.

Just in case you're wondering, I didn't vote. Being vibeless, I thoughtfully recused myself from the poll. It's the right thing to do, I think.

I can tell that you're superficial and meaningless, just by lookin' at ya. A big phoney-baloney!

I'm no good at faking. It's usually pretty obvious if I don't want to be somewhere.

Does it even count as socialization if there's no conversation going on? (Unless you're touching the other person, that can substitute for talking.) I don't know how others see me, but if no one's talking to me I'm probably either reading or working.

Superficial and meaningless.


That would be a political rally, not a genuine social occasion.

I'm with Scarlett. I'd be bored. But I'm also fairly comfortable with silence and/or cardboard conversation. Gives me an opportunity to tune out and work on my characters in my head.

I'm always putting out good vibes. People are drawn to me like a magnet.

If it's one of those 'tedious chit-chat until the boss leaves, so we can also leave' occasions, why expose real feelings and emotions? You'll probably make the chit-chatters feel uncomfortable. And if it's a mixed group of people-you-know and people-you-don't, you don't want to say things to/about the wrong people.
I like to think of this as discretion, not cowardly politicking.
