Would it be worth it to you?

Would it be worth it to know exactly how everyone felt about you? I’m sure that most of us would be suprised, but I’m guessing not completely in a good way. This ability would reveal just what that cute blonde across the room was really thinking, but it would also let you know what your friends really thought of you. Both could be good or bad. I guess what I’m trying to say is that you could be elated by some people’s thoughts and heartbroken by others’. Would it be worth it to you?

No, it’s not worth it. I’ve been known to get totally devastated over things people have told others about me that they would have never said to my face. That has to be one of the worst feelings in the world.

Yep. I’d rather know and be sad/disappointed than not know at all.

I don’t think I’d like to know. I was once in love with this guy who told me I was too ugly to date him. I kinda forced the truth out of him, but it still made me feel like shit. Especially since we were pretty close, and he still couldn’t look past my physical apperance. I was completely heart-broken. I don’t think I could handle going through that again with everyone I know.

I don’t think I’d want to know.

Because what they think is what they think, anything I discover will only affect how I feel about them. I wouldn’t want that, I like it how it is.

I think it would be worth it. Sure some stuff would be upsetting, but at least I’d know how my friends felt about me.
I think the reason I think it would be worth it, is that I go to a vicious, all-girls school where gossip flies faster than anything and EVERYONE talks behind their friends backs. We all have multiple scars from knife wounds in the back and I think, for me, it would be much better to know how others viewed me, for the simple purpose of avoiding our gossip mill. I’d also LOVE to know how people come up with some of the stuff that they do.

No way. I’m rather happy with my present state of self-delusion, and the times when I have learned things to my surprise, knowing it was more damaging than being in the dark. It might be nice to have the short list of people who have had unspoken crushes on me in the past, though. Ego-building.
