Beware of Overly Polite People: Science

Post by Glimmer on Tue May 17, 2016 12:19 am

How do you feel about people who are overly polite? Do you always feel as if they want something extra from you, as if there's something not quite right?

hmmm i dont know about that, i'm overly polite but thats to do with how i've been brought up and a nervousness to want people to like and approve of me, there's no deeper darker motive

i tell you what i find worse than overly polite people....people who just automatically talk to you like they've known you for years when you've literally just met them.....

I don't mind overly polite people myself (unless it's unnatural), I think I tend to be very very polite sometimes and I just wonder if maybe people think I'm fake or trying to get something...

On the other hand I talk to most people like I've known them for years when I've literally just met them Razz lol

I don't think I know how to scratch and I'm not entirely sure if we're really talking about the same thing, I'm very polite and withdrawn and nervous around acquaintances of one kind, especially if they're to do with study/family, but everyone else I just treat as if they're my best friend, though still very polite. People seem to love it, I make friends very very quickly Shruggy smiley


I feel like it's a bit like this, only unfortunately I'd get nervous around the president of the university, but I've been friendly with some very famous academics even though I get sort of shy which makes me a bit awkward (though still effusive)

I have a friend who met Richard Dawkins, and he tried to treat him like a normal person but it fell rather flat hehe

What about people who treat you like you're their long-lost friend though you don't know them well bothers you?

I'm still not sure if that isn't what I do Shruggy smiley I am often just as open and unguarded with people I've just met as with people I've known for years, the only difference with friends I've known for a long time is that the relationship dynamic is different in obvious ways like I wouldn't give a stranger relationship advice or whatever (unless she asked)
You mean people who are overfamiliar?
I hope I'm not like that...



Though I'm sure I can be a little eccentric socially...



I remember Luney said she treats all guys as if they're her best buddy, unless I remember that wrong scratch

yeah i dont think theres anything wrong with treating everyone the same friendly wise if i just meet someone of course i'm going to be friendly and polite , but i guess you still have like a little boundary with that person because you dont know them or arent sure what kind of personality they have, i wouldnt go up to a complete stranger and start some random convo with them like they were my best friend of 10 years.
