The scale is more about the description than whats in brackets, though I'd say in general whats in brackets are pretty accurate.

In all seriousness, I want to be a thorpe/10 in terms of story telling. That area is kinda weak for me. the way he tells stories makes me lean towards the monitor and swipe my screen like I'm reading a book on my phone to get to the next page. then i break out of my idiotic trance and realize that I need to use the mouse to scroll down and i get sucked in once again.

Nah Rake tells the best stories. Really, all of his posts have a weird aura about them. Like for some reason I read all of his posts in a semi-sarcastic, yet unaware tone but most of the time he's being serious.

We've talked about this, he's awesome too.

I can never tell if he's being serious or not, but he's entertaining as hell.

So in other words, you have better conversations with strangers than with your friends? Mind blown

Probably around a 3 with a random dude which I don't have much in common.

With my friends, probably around a 6. I'm no comedian, even though I occasionally blurt out some funny shit at times. If it's a large group, I usually be more of a listener. But tbh, how much I talk, usually depends on who I'm talking to

Yeah, I just say whatever comes to my mind around people I know I will never see again. Told this random nigga he looked like A$AP Rocky the other day. Asked him when the album was dropping.

I'm 10 times better with random chicks I get at on the street than I am with bitches I know.

Before college i'd probably say I was at about a 6 or 7. My overall self confidence skyrocketed in college as opposed to the HS version of myself. I was always good when it came to holding convos with friends and stuff, but the communications courses and just social life in general thru college made me a lot more comfortable when it came to speaking to strangers.

Part of it was just natural growth and maturity that comes with getting older, part of it was increased self confidence and part of it was the actual classes and major.

I think I am pretty high on that list. Rarely do I have to clarify, and when I do, it is because of the comprehension skills of the person I am speaking with.

**waits for somebody to ask for clarification**

Definitely on the high end, but required to speak, give seminars, hold meeting with potentially intimidating colleagues, and teach material on a regular basis. Pretty comfortable, don't stammer, very aware of pacing ums, sos, and other distracting repetitive banter. Definitely keep the mood light with what's been described as enthusiastic cynicism.

Anywhere from 2-5, depending on the person I'm talking to.
