Once you spend enough time with someone, you might notice a certain pattern in other’s behavior.
Maybe a certain way they smile.
A hand gesture.
A word or phrase they often say.
A while back I spent an intense month with 3 colleagues from abroad.
Not only at work, but we’d also hang out in the evenings.
On our last evening we started pointing out our “typical you’s” to each other.
I was pointed out a couple of things.
Apparently, I use the word “apparently” and “anyhow” a lot.
Go figure! 😉
I thought about it later and it does make sense.
Googles gives the following definition for “apparently”:
As far as one knows or can see
Makes sense! I hardly ever believe in anything someone says without prove.
Barely even scientists.
Anyhow is a fitting one for me as well.
Unless facts, I am not a very good story-teller.
I often put too many stories in one and I don’t talk about the purpose of the actual story.
That’s when Anyhow comes in handy.
More than often I have also been told that I have a “smirk face”.
Actually that’s something I see back on many pictures.
Yes, that is a posed smirk face.
Another thing that was pointed out, but I knew this already, is that I tend to roll my eyes a lot.
Has anyone ever pointed out “typical you’s” to you? Or can you name some of yourself?
Have you noticed any in my writing style?
Let me know in the comments!
