      Do you think you're the paranoid type of person or you'd completely trust a stranger? I'm the former.

      I can be a little paranoid to be honest. I have to really get to know somebody before I can fully trust them. I have always believed in getting to know someone before you judge them but some don't always think the same way so until I get to know someone I can always be thinking in my mind "Oh, I wonder what they think of me" or "I wonder if they even care about what I just said"

      I would say i am in a middle of both.I do not trust to easily as well as i am not a paranoid. I try to be careful on dealing with people and not to easily judged them.

      I am in the middle as well. I have to know the person for a period of time in order for me to know a bit on his/her background, how s/he is as a person, etc...

      Not many people would instantly trust a total stranger.I don't class myself as paranoid,I'm not too bothered what others think of me :)

      I'm not paranoid at all about strangers.

      However, if i'm ever really into a guy and he doesn't call/text/IM for days on end, i get paranoid that he's somehow mad at me or i did something wrong and i obsess over it.

      That's just me. And, there's usually some logical reason he's gone like his job or just doing other things.

      But i get my brain wrapped around the paranoid idea and can't let it go till i hear from him again.

      i'm too paranoid to mention. I stereotype everyone I see, if you wear a tracksuit, your instantly a mugging, robbing "chav" type.

      I guess that comes with my anxiety problems though! I trust no-one lol.

      Maybe you have bad experience with people in track suits? :tongueout:

      Or, just maybe you have a good sense about people and are wary for good cause.

      im completely paranoid when it comes to strangers, i never trust anyone i just met, especially in the workplace or outside in the real world,
      in my experience people are just looking to take advantage of you, i hate that

      Not sure if calling it paranoia. I am but for other things, like doing something that may have hurt other people, once I realize the possibility of that I may even lose sleep, haha.

      To meet people, I am shy face to face and easily intimidated, but anyone friendly I am too quick for my own good to trust people I just met.
