I HATE this question!


men-talkingOne question I hate more then most is… Tell me about yourself… UGH! That question drives me nuts, I can feel my brain freeze up on me, my mind go blank and all intelligent thoughts just pack up and leave…

I hate talking about myself, I love talking to others about themselves, and adding in my own two cents, but I do not want to be the center of the conversation. I am happy just to be on the rim, just on the inside of the circle of conversation.

I remember many years ago I was taking a class for my certification in youth ministries, and this was one of our session, talking about ourselves. I hated it, and mostly refused to partake in that discussion, and for me to not get involved in a topic was and still is very odd. The instructor made me, forced me, to talk about myself, my accomplishments, my credentials and all that happy crap! I hated every single minute of it..

I know, instinctively, that I must, I must learn to sell myself, but I just don’t like to do it. One would think, me being an instructor by trade, that I would be comfortable doing so, yet this is not the case. Give me a topic, let me teach and lecture and I am happy. As a life couch, let me listen to you and add in my advice when and where needed and life is good. But to just stand and make myself the center of topic, nope, not interested.

My life is not that interesting, to me anyway, others may disagree and some will agree. But to me, my life is just ordinary, nothing spectacular… So why waste others time with that… I figure, when the time is right, and the information is needed, I will state it, it will come out, sooner or later, so why bother with all that up front.

Having said all this, i know and understand it is important to be able to answer this question… So here is a good article on this…

Tell me about yourself

The Art of Manliness is a great resource for informative how-to articles, not just for men, but for all…
