LoL.. Sorry, it's hard not to laugh at this, when you're posting using a generic fake picture with no real name or ID ;)

The bottom line? Actions speak louder than words.
If you want to know who someone is, pay attention
to the way they treat you, treat their friend, and
treat total strangers.

And then watch how all those people react in return
to that person.

That should tell you all you need to know about them.

Their laugh. Someone who cannot seem to laugh genuinely is not a genuine person. Someone who isn't afraid to simply laugh, however, it comes out, isn't afraid to "be themself".

Seeing how you are on this site, about 90% of the so clled people here are just that....Fake. You have yourself a good start sojust observe what is known as Pattern behavior.

its call intuition that you get from experience of meeting so many fake people, the good thing that I learn is to keep them near because you never know when you can use them too. Like a great philosopher said: Keep your friends close but your enemies closer.

No one is perfect. No one is confident enough all the time to "let it all hang out". Some people have survival skills that make them smile when they are afraid or don't like you. Even if you assess personalities, try to flex your compassion muscles at the same time! No one has it easy, you may never know what someone's life has been like to make them rude or two-faced. Stick with the true-hearts and winners.
Getting into this type of judgment is destructive- have you read the Catcher in the Rye? It's about a guy who was so caught up in authenticity that he isolated himself and became self-absorbed and depressed. Really not a very healthy obsession! Google the loving kindness meditation, that will give you a positive and compassionate prospective!

When someone is being 'real', they aren't afraid to tell you like it is, they respect you, they are genuine and sincere in the things they say/do and they treat you like you matter...someone who is fake wouldn't care that they were hurting you or offending you and may even make jokes about you or do something hurtful...:D

time can only tell. patience is a virtue, one i dont poses very well. But one can only hold up an act for so long before it falls through or the make a wrong step and fall to the ground.

But usually actions speak louder then words. Alot of people cant connect actions with words, if theyre fake it will only show in one instead of the other. And most of the time, like i said, when your fake, something wont make sence. Acts get tiring to hold up when you cant rememebr whats real and whats not

Too vague really....I can be a smart ass..but would really like to help you...

If you feel like they are not being genuine or true to you..then chances are they are not being "real" with you either!
