I think I discovered a superpower of mine: I'm quite anonymous. I usually have to introduce myself 2-3 times as people don't remember ever meeting me before, and I manage to hang around the same places for a while without anyone saying 'hey, I know you'. If something, I got ask 'hey, are you new here?'. That's so amazing.
My questions for the fediverse are:
* any idea on how to properly test this feeling, like in a good experiment?
* thoughts on how to improve this power of mine?
You got a strategy there, seems solid. Do you also have this power?
I'm not a shy person, I'd say, and I feel quite at ease in almost every context.
It may be a matter of dressing, hairstyle and such, or maybe my way of doing, as you say.
An experiment would start by quantifying people who say hello to me in a new environment for a month, then change clothing style and see if the average trend changes...
I used to think this. Then I discovered more people recognized me and knew about than I realized. Most people are just hesitant to reach out and build on that connection and that's ok. But sometimes, with a little help, you can strengthen that little thread of recognition
Mmhm, how would I go to understand if I really go unnoticed or is just in my head, you reckon? A few days ago I introduced myself to a person *for the sixth time*. And she didn't remember me at all.
To make myself clear, I find it awesome. Would like to improve it, if there are ideas on the how to
Well that person will probably remember you now. I am fairly introverted so I tend to be a wallflower. But I realized I was wrong to think that being reserved meant I didn't have a presence. Mostly I observed that others knew things about me they could only learn from talking to other people!
