    I'd say I'm a bit of a firecracker. I get annoyed quite easily, and I'm not afraid to be rude. : (43 votes)

    I speak my mind no matter how hurtful or rude I may be. Kiss my butt or get out of my life. : (3 votes)

    Firecracker. I am nice, i go out of my way alot to do things for people. However, i have word vomit and sometimes i say something i thought in my head without it going through the filter. So i can be a bit of a biatch. 

    I’m working on it lol.

    I’m passionate about what I believe in, but am nice about it. I voted for Nice/Arguments Nice/ Don’t cross my loved ones. I am a fiercely loyal person and will fight tooth-and-nail for those I love.

    Same. I’m nice and have a big heart and love to help others but I also get irritated easily (particularly at work) and have trouble keeping myself and my reaction under control. I definitely have a bit of a tude problem at times, and pregnancy has only made it worse!

    I’m very nice too, but with an edge at times. I’m a high school teacher so that combo works in my favor. My students like me and know I respect them, but they also know when not to cross me. Sometimes I feel over-polite in other situations, but it’s how I was raised.

    I would say I’m nice enough.  I always try to be kind.  Sometimes people can be really stupid, though, so there’s that.  I don’t have a lot of patience for stupid.

    I consider myself a nice person… until you get to know me. Hahahahahahah. That sounds horrible, but I tend to air on the side of caution (and therefore being way too overly nice) with strangers, whereas my friends know me for being more argumentative. … probably way too argumentative.

    I try my best to be as friendly as possible, but I’m snarky. It’s just who I am. I have a very, very, very low tolerance for stupid (although ignorant I can tolerate) and if I have predetermined that I don’t like you, there’s really not much you can do. It’s nothing personal, it’s just that I am a flawed human and I do my best to keep my flaws in check, but they very much define who I am and dictate how I handle people.

    I don’t go out of my way to be rude or offend people. I have zero conscious desire to upset people, but I say what I mean and I mean what I say. Some people just don’t like what I have to say, and that’s alright. I’m not a fan of sugar coating something just so someone’s delicate snowflake feelings are spared. I definitely have a very thick skin and can bounce nearly everything off me, and I feel people have too thin of skin nowadays, so I suppose that taints how I respond to some things since I feel people should be more like me and less delicate.

    I always do my best to express myself in a kind way, but if someone gets shitty with me then I will get shitty right back. You’re not likely to catch me instigating the shittiness, though. Because I’m nice. 🙂

    I’m not as nice I wish I was. But I try very hard to think before I speak (and fail at that one often), try to take other people into account and be thoughtful and considerate of others. 

    Course if you get me on a cranky day and do something inconsiderate/stupid/makes my head hurt, I will yell at you through my car window. This may or may not have happened this morning.

    I’m probably like you.  I was a teacher for a while (went back to school now tho) – and had my associate teachers tell me I was too nice all the time.  I have friends who’ve gotten annoyed bc I always try and give people the benefit of the doubt lol (I guess that’s not what they want to hear when they’re venting to me).

    Even when I argue, I try and see things how other people might see them and make sure I let them know that I understand their point and see why it’s valid etc.   I am most definitely a people pleaser.  But I try not to be a doormat either

    I’m nice but assertive & can definitely stand my ground. I can be your bestest friend in the whole wide world & have actually had people tell me “You’re one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met” & “I just can’t imagine you ever getting mad.” Those people just don’t have a clue lol! I don’t let people walk on me & I have no problem saying NO. I try hard to be understanding & tolerant, regardless of someone’s belief system, preferences, etc. I believe in a live & let live mentality & I won’t force my opinions on others. That being said, I’m very honest, so if someone says “Is this dress ugly?” while I won’t say “Yes, it looks like a million people puked on it at once”, I’m not going to encourage them to wear it lol. (And if it’s my best friend who asks, I would probably go ahead & say it looked like a million people puked on it at once. Because like, we’re best friends & stuff.
