*Stretches his fingers*
Been a while since I've made an entry. Anyways, this one is on vibes. Comments always appreciated.
When I talk to people who I've just met, I usually can feel a vibe emit from them either quickly, or within a couple days after communication with them. To me, feeling a vibe from someone is also a factor when I consider starting up a role-play (or even a one shot) with them or not.
I guess a vibe can strongly go hand and hand with the persons personality. A person who is rude, disrespecting and dishonest gives off a very bad vibe (and I can catch that pretty quickly). Others give off a warm, comforting vibe, and of course, it usually goes hand in hand with their friendly and inviting personality. Not all the times.
Some of my..we'll say predictions...aren't always right. I may get a bad vibe from someone but they end up being a great person. I may feel a good or decent vibe from someone and they end up being a complete butt-hole. It's a hit or a miss though I'd have to say a good 80% of the times I'm correct when it comes to a persons vibe.
Not only does ones awareness to another persons vibe come in handy when dealing with playing and such, it also can give off a good signal (or warning) as to either keep in touch and mingle with the other person, or stay away for he or she may be trouble to you.
Unfortunately for me, even if I feel a bad vibe from a person, others may not recognize it before they experience something from the actual person. It kind of stinks not being able to really do much when it feels like you say you have a bad vibe from someone and people just take it as your own personal opinion and don't listen. Sucks but oh well, sometimes it takes an actual action to speak for itself yea?
As for me, I think I'll continue to listen to my gut when I get a bad or good vibe from someone. Doesn't mean I will ignore you because I think you're a bad person because I feel a bad vibe from you. I may just be a bit more cautious until I feel you out (not like that pervs =p >_>) and get to know you better.
