Do you occasionally give people too much personal information about yourself?
I have learned not to do this but I think I used to be a bit of an open book, divulging far too much.
Another aspect of this is quizzing the individual you are talking to about personal information which is inappropriate to the conversation.

Yeah, I often find myself spilling out too much information - on a variety of subjects, not just myself. I can hear myself doing it as I do so, and feel tremendously embarrassed sometimes, but the thought of never saying it in the first place often only arises once it's too late.

I also often feel like I'm talking too much, and I have to stop, take a deep breath, and say "well, that's enough about me. What about you?" Learning to listen as well as talk is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.

No, I tend to keep personal information shut.

I only share some personal information here and when I talk with my mum.

I can't trust friends, some close friends maybe though.

I tend to do that a lot, which scares a few people.

I used too, but then after an incident it made me aware not to and now I am super cautious around 'strangers' who seem to be asking too many questions.

It's my favorite movie, and I'm obsessed with it right now. :D

Yeah. It's a good film. Acting in it is great. The main girl in it is superb. The baddie in Sweden (Tomas Neumann) isn't bad either.

That guy did a great job in making me despise him.

I'm at one extreme or the other. Either I say nothing, or I spill my guts and regret it immediately. It's like I'm not in control once I start.

Oh yes, I do this all the time :oops:. Both divulging too much info and the asking inappropriate questions.
