    As the title says. Whenever I see a PM that hasn't been read yet, I quickly click to read it as if my life depended on it lol

    I instinctively jump and/or flinch at everything. I'm kind of easy to scare.

    ^ Boo!

    ...


    I instinctively count whatever I see to even numbers. If there is an odd number, I FIND another or count one I'm not sure I counted before again.

    Sometimes I will be making copies at work. I'll wait 10 minutes, thinking about other stuff. Then I'll think to myself something along the lines "Of the 450 copies I'm making, only 15 remain." I pay attention, and I'm typically right.

    My instincts? I can instinctively tell who's trouble and who's not.

    I can tell when I'm walking into a trap whenever a specific group gives me an invitation to meals or any gathering. I swear I'm not anybody's fucking clown, so go get your own performing chimp.

    I always read pms when I get them & try to reply right away too, especially if the other person is online. However, sometimes I get into the habit of sending a pm & then getting into something else offline, thus making it seem like I waited an hour to reply.

    Either way, I'm pretty observant in general because it's pretty much common sense. However, I'm human, so there's times where I won't be as quick as I need to be, etc.

    I used to be a bit of a troll on this site a couple years ago. So every time I get a notification nowadays, it still kinda scares me into thinking it'll be another infraction or possibly even a ban warning lol. But honestly, if anyone here can remember how I used to act, have any of you guys noticed an improvement in my behavior? This may not be the place to ask thought I'd mention it anyways. And for the record, I am not pretending to act normal for a change. A few things have happened to me during those couple of years that was basically a wake-up call, if you will. I can even say for myself that I've matured a bit and I'm quite proud of myself for it.

    Hahaha, you're definitely not alone there, and I was actually just joking about that with a friend of mine. Like, I don't really get that feeling on here because I use the pm system & things quite often, but on sites that I don't really socialize with people on /that I don't go to very often at all I can definitely relate. It's always like wtf would someone send me a pm & what could the staff have found on me? It's usually just spam or a member who's recognized my username, but it still makes me wonder because I'm never expecting to get notifications on those places.

    ^ "I can't read?"

    I always try to figure out acronyms and I typically will either find the correct meaning or the most funny meaning.

    Hehe, I know what you mean. :lol 

    I sometimes get the occasional PM from a total stranger and get kinda weary as to why they're PM'ing me in the first place. I've always held distrust towards strangers but if they seem cool and all, I don't mind I guess.

    When it comes to instinct...


    I don't consider myself to be human, which by default leads me to consider not being an animal at all.


    My instincts are cosmic and legendary.



    Jk. When something falls, I catch it, that's all.
    I'm a good judge of character, but I'm known to fail if I'm met by a pretty face and pretty eyes.

    My instinct is when someone asks a stupid question to give a dickish answer.

    ^ Troll baiting?

    Seriously, your post confuses me. Are you just spamming that movie in your signature?

    It's clearly a bot, so I wouldn't expect a response out of "her".

    I don't, actually. Mods love me.

    I jump when someone does like, a pretend punch, or reaches for me unexpectedly. Guess what my friends do? Fucking dicks.
