    How private a person are you? Do you tend to 'open up' to certain people more than others? Why?

      I'm pretty open with a lot of things I think. I do have my secrets though.

        I'm sort of private, but not really.

        I generally just tell you what you need to know. If you're close to me, I tell you more.

        I like my privacy

        I'm a private person in general and very guarded with what I tell people about myself. In real life, that is. Online I'm far more open.

        What I generally do is I tell different people different things about myself, so I always have a go-to person if I have problems that deal with that aspect of my life. i don't really like anybody having the whole picture if I can avoid it... don't know why. I'm hoping to change that.

        I'm very private, I do enjoy giving out information online but not in reality.

        I only tell people about myself if they need to know something about me.

        I tell everything on a need to know basis. I don't feel like the majority of people need to know everything about me. I generally only tell people things if I feel they ought to know about and feel comfortable sharing the information. Online is ok, but of course, I dont tell people everything about myself here either, as it's not always safe sharing info online, so I share what I feel comfortable sharing and is safe to share.

          I never open up my secrets, as I like keeping my privacy very tight.

          I'm private, I usually keep a lot to myself and im fine with that. I don't like when someone knows everything there is to know about me.

          I am super open around strangers, and become more closeted as I become closer to people.
          I'm practically the exact opposite of most people.

          I'm not really a private person. I generally answer any question asked by anyone as honestly as possible, unless it's something that makes me feel uncomfortable to talk about.

          I open up to a lot of people, tell them my secrets, you know? But I keep my deepest, inner-most secrets to myself. 90% open, 10% private.

            Mmmmm. Half-and-half. It really depends on what the person wants to know, but generally I'm a pretty open person, I don't like hiding much unless it's something that makes me uncomfortable.

              I never open up to people unless I'm good friends with them, and even then what I share about myself is limited. I'm a very reserved person. I don't start conversations with people on my own.

                I can be quite open, but I'm not very trusting. I am fine with giving information where I will be judged, but not when it's very important to me. I like privacy and I don't like to announce things on social networks.

                I never open up to anyone, not even my parents (which annoys them greatly).

                Though I don't keep secrets if they are mine, if someone asks I will answer truthfully (granted they have to know what to ask for, a vague question gets a vague response). Secrets given to me are perfectly safe though, mostly because I can never gain more than I lose by revealing (trust is important in my line of work and social status)

                Edit* I am much more likely now adays to confront almost anyone, the whole loner thing is dreadfully lonely and boring. I'd much rather try my chances meeting everyone, you can't make friends unless the first hello is initiated.

                I don't tell anyone anything. Lately, I've been trying to open up more, but I just share trivial secretive things. It's a step, I guess. But everything else stays inside my mind.

                I'm a pretty sheltered up person, don't talk much at all, have been trying lately though. But I am a good listener.

                I usually just tell people what they need to know and that's about it, though when I do open up, I'm honest. I'm more honest online than I am in real life though.

                I'm definitely private about myself, I don't like sharing stuff about me to others.

                This is why I'm a girl of few words irl. I'm just so quiet.

                  You're a girl of few words? That's a first...

                  I guess you can be both a person of few words and a person who makes long posts. I mean, that's who I am. I might seem socially apt online, but nope. Total social misfit in real life.

                  I'm (apparently) notoriously closed and guarded in real life, with my friends often making jokes about how secretive I am. Whether they are sincerely criticizing my apparent 'wall of silence' in regards to my personal life or not, it frustrates me that they perceive me to be so closed off about my life. Although I don't like sharing my emotions in real life, I'm nowhere as cold as they perceive me to be. It's because they don't really care about my life that I don't choose to anything about it. If they want to cover up their own failures by blaming it on me, so be it.

                  In the internet, however, I am far more open about my life, whether people care or not. Of course, there are darker aspects of me that I do not wish to share to anyone but my closest friends, which I think is quite reasonable, don't you?

                  With my friends, I am super open. Probably actually an over-sharer, but whatever, doesn't bother me haha. With people I know but I'm not friends with, idc about them, so obviously I have no interest in telling them anything. When I meet new people, I usually let them know a fair bit about me, it makes conversation way more interesting then over-generalised small talk, which is the worst.
