Not always. They make an assumption without speaking with me first and then they usually have the wrong impression

Not really because I'm very reserved and more of an observer in public.

No.

a noticeable amount of people seem to negatively stereotype me. I went to start a new job the other day. 2 of the people who were also working there were sitting on the train a little bit next to me (we hadn't met yet), ...then finally when we got to work and i realised who they were i talked to one of the guys and said i was new. he seemed surprised but seemed alright with me. The second guy however gave me this sort of "this guy looks dodgy, i don't really want to be working with him" sorta look and barely said two words for me the rest of the time there.

anyways long story short, the first guy ended up having some kind of breakdown and then most people eventually went home in the end (including myself)

in a second job (a few days later after i decided i wasn't going back to the first job) I went for an induction and the woman had calculated the number of people wrong for the room sizes (they could not hold much due to social distancing) so she had to send a couple of people home. (including myself)
you should have seen her when was explaining it to me, explaining that i had to go home, it was like she was scared i would kick off, i could see it in her body language. she spent almost the entire time apologising to me and not the other woman who was also being sent home too. her eyes were squarely fixed on me, and watching for my reactions whilst apologising like a gazillion times. almost like she was expecting me to attack her or something.

Usually. They usually don't get the deadpan humour and think I'm rude or autistic.

Nope, most of the time people think I am older than I am. Or they think I am a lot more confident than I actually am.

Nope as well. My friends say that I had RBF and a monotonous voice when they first met me 😂

No because they think I'm nice to everyone haha. In fact I can be brutal to the people who deserve it.
But mostly correct, I am a very nice person in most cases and I actively avoid conflict. But I think people don't really know how many mental issues I have lol.

No. :laugh:
Takes a while for too many people to realise that the combination of quiet, petite and female living alone does not mean willing to appease the demands of 90% the world's bad apples: the entitled, loudmouths with a respect agenda or habitual criminals that demand automatic obedience.
Comes as quite a shock when the reality hits that I'm not lonely, desperate or willing to tolerate being mistaken for the carpet/dustbin/punchbag. :cool:

This is one of the reasons I stopped socialising with other people outside of work. Life is much easier when you don't have to put up with that stereotypical ********.

dont know, dont care.

A persons first impression of you is never really about you, its about them.
