We all know what someone with lots of opinions looks like. It can be difficult to absorb sometimes, but I guess when it tips into being very annoying is when they are stubborn, disrespectful, or always think theirs are right and others' are wrong. Some speak before they think, and figure it out later that they may need to recalibrate or refine their conclusions; but it's the ones that have no flexibility in their thinking that can be problematic.
Then the other type is a person who seems so noncommittal, it's difficult to know what they truly think about anything. Maybe they don't want to offend; maybe they truly don't have an opinion, but you often wonder where they really stand, or what might be revealed later, because they seem so vague and noncommittal.
I'm just curious which people find is the more difficult situation/person.
Please expand on why.
For me it's definitely too many, I'm probably more of the latter there's load of things out there I generally don't know about or have an opinion on so why talk about the topic. From the poeple I've known I've been told that I'm super boring and my opinions don't mean shit so I've withdrawn into myself around most people. Eg: they used to say their nan doesn't use the internet, does the same thing day in day out, go to the shop just to find people to talk to. But she makes a story of it and it's hilarious, she'll gossip about others and have lots to say. Whereas you we'd ask where you've been and you'll be like studying at the library, there's no story or anything.
My own nan is of the personality of too many opinions and she often makes disrespectful comments and says things that hurt. And anytime I mention it she turns it around on me saying either I'm imagining things, I'm making things up, I twist her words around. Or she'll say something like hearing aids are ugly, and I said so when I wore them for 10 years I was ugly and she said oh I didn't mean it like that.
So yeah I try to keep everything to myself, most of the things I like is boring, and most of the things I have a problem with I'm told I'm making things up and just causing arguments. 🤷♀️ So I can't win
Wow you are in quite the spot there. That's a really good explanation of why a person would develop this method of not speaking.
