For example, do you mind if someone blatantly asks how much your checks are? Or how much you weigh? Or if they asked how old you were?

Very sociable people wouldn't mind these questions, but threads like these normally get mostly negative responses, being an internet board for east asia media. But I'm curious about a few posters rather than the majority.

Whenever I was at work today, I was in the freezer, doing my picks as usual, my coworker: "Are you busy later?" and "Do you wanna mess around, maybe?"

I was caught off guard, but I just said, "You'll have to remind me tomorrow, I'm playing games tonight."

Not a straight forward answer, but I got started thinking. "What would X do in this situation?" and "How approachable are most people in general?"

Which led to this thread.

Do you respond normally to blunt requests, or are you more prone to getting angry?

I give an answer, whether it sounds rude or polite. "Wanna come with me to the movies?" ..My mum said no.

Im pretty chill with anything its gotta be really stupid to annoy me i guess.

I think I have said it before but people can literally ask me anything as long as it doesn't get super pervy or it won't affect other people. An example of that would be like my phone number for the purpose of calling nonstop as a prank. As I don't own a cell phone I wouldn't want my family getting angry by the calls to the home phone.

I'm very approachable neutral, but I don't necessarily respond to every "blunt" request. The person who cares the least controls the relationship.

I'm fine.

i'm fine with any questions.

i just don't like redundant questions like, "are you gay?", even if asked in earnest... because it's kind of obvious that i am.

other than that, i don't mind intrusive or offensive questions at all. and my answers will always be honest, i'm too lazy to think about the consequences.

____________

Also don't like it when people IRL ask me, "What is your nationality?" because you wouldn't ask a white person this question, why ask me this question? i'm just like, "btch learn the difference between nationality and race".

I can answer to almost all questions you ask me. I don't get bothered at all, since I simply don't care.

Frankly, it doesn't work that way. You can't "not respond" but still be approachable.

Keep in mind, this thread is to be taken as the person asking is genuine curious/interested in that aspect of you, and would love to know. Nothing like. "Are you a fucking idiot?" Or. "Did wash after you finished in the bathroom?"

If you only respond to questions you personally deem "clean", than by definition, you would be "neutral" not "Very Approachable" as that's misleading as heck.

I kinda mind questions like that. I wouldn't make a big stink about it, but I'd probably just ignore the person or dodge the question altogether.

I will generally answer just about anything that isn't sensitive information (which doesn't really cover much anyway) and will converse with anyone as long as they are calm and without malicious intent....

I don't think I am perceived as approachable by anyone who doesn't know me. I am too often seen as intimidating so not many people don't initiate contact with me for the first time. This of course means the pressure is on me to speak up and show that I am easy going. I find it refreshing when someone new initiates conversation with me.
