Do you have an “angle”?

How do you think people perceive you?  I happen to be fairly cynical; I like to believe that people have good intentions and are altruistic, but I trust them only as far as I can throw them because deep down I figure everyone has an “angle”.  Everyone wants something from somebody for some reason.  It’s the rare person that I meet that despite all of my sleuthing I can’t discover their intentions – because surely they much have them.

These rare gems, the people with no discernable angles, somehow lull me into a state of ease that to be honest, I will jump out of and back to full attention as soon as something seems strange.  Sometimes my gut is right and this well-rounded person suddenly has become another shape, other times it was a false alarm and I settle back down.  Some people just instantly put me at ease and these have become very dear friends.

So I think about how people perceive me.  I hope I don’t come across as someone looking to use others to get ahead.  Being used in any way is a horrible experience.  So that causes me to ask you, Dear readers, how do you think people perceive you?
