  1. I don’t know whether it’s my personality or whether it’s the types of places I’ve lived, but I’ve noticed that for me – that’s not something that happens often. Not to say it doesn’t happen at all – there are a couple of ‘stereotypes’, we’ll call them, that actively set out how I see another person when I encounter them, but I’ve tried to do my best over the years to eliminate that. A lot comes from the variety of types of people that I’ve worked with; it’s made it incredibly hard for me to draw similarities between people or stereotypes. Instead – when I meet people, it’s strange – rather than connecting their traits and personalities with others, to me, they’re a blank slate – I see no personality or identifiable traits at all until I begin to know them a bit better. If that makes any sense.

    • It does make sense. I’m not sure if it’s a cultural thing or a person to person thing. I know it’s a very common thing to have happen in the USA (at least in the places I’ve lived). That said, I can’t speak for areas I haven’t lived. I’m curious as to what others think.
