  • I can tell some one's personality within the first few seconds. A firm handshake and someone who looks you dead in the eye is a person who is true, confident and usually trust worthy. I can't stand meeting someone for the first time and they that weak , "I AM TOO GOOD TO SHAKE YOUR HAND PROPERLY" thing. I also don't trust a shifty gaze, Immediately , I don't have much faith in you confidence. I am usually right.

  • Their name, where they are from, what they do for a living, if they are married, have a family, etc. In other words, a little bit of very basic information.

  • I am a very good judge of character. I can be around someone for 5 minutes and be able to tell what kind of person they are. I have been right about everyone of my moms boyfriends and friends as well as my friends boyfriends. What sucks I am very blind when it comes to men for myself.

  • I won't lie I analyze the hell out of people. I wouldn't necessarily call it "judging" people because I know that what I think probably isn't true and I don't treat people a certain way just based on what I THINK about them, but I do observe and make analyzations based on what I see. In 5 minutes I can come up with a great story about a person I know nothing about, or I can talk to them and ask them what they're really like, and get to know the truth.

  • I can usually tell if they are a confident person or not. But a lot depends on circumstances. Unless they are just terrible, vulgar, etc., I usually reserve my opinion & try to get to know them better.

  • I can tell if they are phony in just a few minutes. Intuition kicks in.
