What kind of person would you most likely approach?

Let's say you're lost and your phone is dead so you have to ask for directions. What kind of person would you most likely approach to ask for help? What makes a person seem approachable to you?

    • When people ask how to approach the opposite gender, that's what I always suggest they do. Asking a mundane question is the perfect ice breaker to start a conversation with an attractive stranger.

    • Yeah any common question could start any convo u make it to be as long as they aren't in a rush or look like they are trying to continue on with there business

  • I'd approach someone who looks professional: business-casual type of attire, relatively put-together (i. e., clean hair, no overload of make-up), sober-looking, etc. Going off on the representativeness heuristic, professional-looking people ought to have proper manners and give me a succinct, polite response.
    I wouldn't approach someone who look too engaged in their own affairs to take kindly to being disturbed--if they're on the phone or engrossed in texting or listening to music without seeming attentive to the outside world, I'd leave them alone.
    Gender makes no difference to me.

  • Interesting question. I find myself approaching police officers, firefighters, military, bank owners and the like whenever I am out and have needed to. It's interesting because they've all been in normal clothes and a few of them were homeless. I think my mind just "knows" what kind of person they are before I do.

  • In public I'm always the one approached by people if they need to ask something. When I'm alone, with friends or family. Except when I'm with my dad. So I think people like to approach open and confident people, like me and my father. They like to approach the alpha I think, which usually is me unless my kind looking giant of a dad is with me lol

  • Someone who looks, happy, friendly, and non-threatening. If they're wearing a police uniform I'd be likely to ask them for help if they wrren't busy. I wouldn't approahc someone contrary to this because I wouldn't want to get snapped at in a fit of rage for just needing help. The person may be a man or a woman. It all depends on context really.

  • Just ask them for directions. If you are in a bad area or you start getting bad vibes, be prepared to fight and defend yourself. It works for me and everyone should know this world is far from an honest place, like heaven!

  • I'd probably aproach someone who looks just as nerdy as i am. I generally avoid girls (especially cute ones) because i would probably just freeze up after saying hi.

  • Someone who looks interesting, open, not busy, smiles a bit, alone, seems to have something in common and probably a woman, because I really just don't care about men.

  • A woman my age, who wasn't wearing headphones and preferably was in a group of people, so one if them would most likely know how to help me.

    • Joku suuttuu kohta, et miks en kysyis mieheltä. 😅

    • Meinasin laittaa oman mielipiteeni tohon, mut sit oisin kuulostanu kauheelta syrjijältä nii en kehannu. 😅

  • Someone who looks like they know the area well (as in, they don't look like a tourist or like they are lost). Preferably in uniform. Middle-aged woman probably.

    I wouldn't be in that situation though because I always make sure to charge my phone 100% if I'm going out to find somewhere I've never been before. And I'll even print out a map so I can't get lost no matter what
