Depends, I think.  Now if he says something that makes me melt (something along the lines of what James said), I would HOPE that I wouldn't attack him! :P

I personally mistrust compliments. In my experience, if someone's going to lie about their opinion, they generally lie to be nice/polite/try to get something out of you. So you can never tell if the person really feels that way, or if they're trying to be nice.

I think the problem that people don't trust compliments is that when you get them in every day life, you get a positive note followed with a "but" and then a negative (or many negatives).

As for me, I don't say compliments unless I mean them.  Whether you choose to believe my compliments or not when I give them, I will stand behind them.

ie:
Say is stunning and omg so talented. :o
Cat is beautiful and omg so sweet. :P
Kim is gorgeous and omg so funny. XD
Liz is cute and omg so pervy. :suffer:
Laur is hot and omg so hot.  :lovegoggles:

I sort of understand Jeysie at some point because Im somewhat the same, (mistrusting complements sometimes which comes as "don't quite listen" :P) you do question it sometimes when someone comes up and say something "nice" to you because past experiences such as: you did trust, you did listen and in the end what was it? nothing but words... that's exactly why I really don't listen to random ppl comment or so to speak "praising", because people just lie for the sake of lying, I went though that with someone I thought would never lie to me, and now forgiveness seems like a never ending long road... I may just never make it but then again I dont think it matters now. So, my point is wether you may want to trust it, believe it, accept it, sometimes it just doesn't comes easy, you just smile and say thanks but in the end they go blind.

For example James should know that when we met I didn't listen to whatever he said :P after we got knowing each other for 8474987543958 I kinda do now :P hahaha, but it's because after you've gone though those things you raise up your shield a bit, and stop being so open or so nice, that's MY case.

Ask poor Michael what he had to go though lol (or what he still goes though) with me...  :-X

I agree with everything being said here.  I learned a long time ago to not let compliments get to your head, because they are (sad to say) just words.  On a similar note, I eventually learned not to let criticizm get to my head either, and trust me, that was WAY harder.

Whether someone's cheering me on, or saying I'll never do something, I don't let it influence me because they are not the ones in question, I am. 8)  If they think they can do, act, or even be better than you, just tell 'em to go right ahead and do so themselves and/or redirect the comment back at them.  :suffer:

It's more like:

Friend: "You're stupid!"
Neil: "Whatever."
Friend: "Did you hear me?  I said you're stupid!"
Neil: "Wow, that's great."
Friend: "Hellooo stupid!  How's it going?"
Neil: "Huh?"
Friend: "ARE YOU DEAF?!  I #$@#$#&$# SAID YOU'RE &$*(%#$&%*( STUPID!"
Neil: "...alright, listen up %&$$%$%$%$&*. I don't #%$%%$% care whatever the &*$%($ you have to say, nor do I need to stand here and listen your %$&*%($ ^(^*%&^(, so just SHUT THE #*(% UP AND GET OUT OF MY FACE!" <breaks the "friend's" jaw>
Friend: " :'( "
Neil:  ":suffer: I win! haha!"


Hehe, ok it may be a little exaggerated.  ;-D

You still rarely listen to me. :(  But at least you realize I'm not some random putz who says things without meaning just so I get something from you. :S  I only say it because I mean it. :)
Mind you, I'll still jealous of Mike, Alex, and Cesar for those little charactures you did for them. ;P

lol, nah, that's a huge exaggeration.  :P I can actually handle anger really well.  But there are times when people really piss me off and I get psycho with them :P, it just doesn't happen often though.  XD

OMG guys stop it with the sheep, im goin on holiday to ales soon- land of sheep, i hope i wont be woken up by a few loud canadians!! Stay away from the sheep!

And omg im so staying out of neils way if he ever got pissed off, i think the convo would be

Neil- Kimmie your stupid
Kim- yes i know  :'( the crying would come before the arguing  ;D (not that neil would ever say that...to my face)  <3 ;P

I hav had a few memorable things said to me in the past which have lead me to doubt my ability and all that...for instance- when my headmaster in primary school said god must have passed me over when he handed out brains...ofcourse as a wee girl of about say 11...yes 11, how could he crush a little girls world! ok she wasnt the most brainy person in her class...but come on! How many of her fellow classmates hav a successful dance group...how many of them are gettin a published poem? And thats all thanx to the encouragement and belief of mainly one person- my mum. she gives me all the compliments i need...if she apporves then i know something is good. she is honest and will tell me if she likes what i have done, or how i can improve myself.

im not a perfect person, im not brainy say in the "academic" subjects, but right now, at my age i feel i dont need to be. I like to be creative, its just the way peoples minds work, ur either super clever or creative...or if ur lucky both!

and i hav rambled on now too much, so i shall cease. BUT...a lot of u guys on here hav made me feel better about myself on a number of occasions, so thanx guys, u know i appreciate it  :) <3

The End

Does the fact that Neil loves cookies make you feel better too?  ;B

I have to agree... I'm lucky that I'm academically quite good but i've always wished i could find a creative talent just waiting to burst out!
Jon always thought it was just hiding and needed some encouragement but even after being around him for 4 years and trying to draw things and 'create' it's still not appearing  :'(

At least i have something to be thankful for and I'm glad I'm not one of those super-brainy people who end up with amazing brains but no social capabilities ! Have some like that in my physics classes....it's a bit worrying sometimes cos it makes me wonder if they'll have the right kind of common sense to know what to do with all their inventions

I'm not brainy *or* creative, nor do I have many social skills, if it makes anyone feel better. :P Sorry, Kimmie, so much for that theory!

I wish I was good at something creative... I look at all the cool stuff my creative pals do (I have, like, a ton of creative friends... must be a latent tendency for self-torture :P ) and I always feel so totally envious and I wish I could be that good at something creative. :'(

Don't let people get you down, Kimmie. Brainy people keep the world running... and creative people keep our hearts and sanity running! We need them both or we'd be in big trouble!

Peace & Luv, Liz

Keep our hearts running for sure but as far as all the creative people I know they tend to destabilise my sanity more than anything...not that that's a bad thing, I still love creative people  <3

That was sweet, Jeysie!!

I know I'm academically successful--but the only creative bone in my body decides to be activated about once in a blue moon, if that often!  People like Kimmie, who is able to write and dance, all those who are working on the game are creative way beyond my imagination!  And of course, all the musicians...able to compose songs...*sigh*  But at least I sing...kinda :P  Anyway, there's no way we could make it in this world without our creative people!  

And about those people who are SUPER smart and have no social life--there are those who are SUPER smart and have absolutely NO common sense!  I know one girl who is super smart and the first time she ever loaded a dishwasher,  she stacked the dishes on top of one another, because she had no clue how to load the dishes.  

Ok, thought I'd share that funny story :P  Enjoy!

Neil- Kimmie your stupid

LOL!  I never insult people, which is why it's rare for a "friend" to insult me in the first place, making the chances of that whole argument I posted earlier non-existant.  XD

I would never call anyone stupid, ugly or anything like that, even if they were and considered themselves to be.  I never brag to people if I'm better at them than something because I can assure them that there's tons of things that they're better than me at.

People have said a lot of things to me over the years.  Some of which I still keep in the back of my mind to this very day.  I would never want to become like that teacher of yours and say something that could affect a person's self-confidence for their whole life.

Getting back on topic.  I don't consider anyone to be stupid or fugly because they're all smart & secsay in their own individual way.  Being smart doesn't mean being very academic.  There is a whole range of things to being intelligent (creativity, artistic talent, literature, etc).  This also why IQ tests aren't based solely on knowledge.  :)
