Fake it til you make it

I am the one at the back of the room. I shy away from the groups of people.

If you look at me, I will smile in a friendly manner.

If you approach me, I will smile, with mouth and eyes.

If you speak to me, I will laugh at the right places. I will throw my head back, appreciating your humour. I will encourage you to speak by asking the right questions. I will deflect anything about me, and will constantly turn the conversation back to you.

When we finish speaking, you will think that I’m a friendly person, with a great sense of humour, and very open.

If you actually thought about it, you would realise I was a good actress.

You know what they say ‘Fake it til you make it.’
