It is clear that you are self-sufficient and do not constantly need to be reassured. When you ask someone’s opinion they tell you the truth, which isn’t necessarily always what you want to hear. But you appreciate their honesty. You are an unfussy person, who is not hard to please.
You enjoy being complimented and flattered, but you don’t demand it. You like being taken notice of, but are embarrassed if you become the centre of attention. Some people mistakenly assume you are high maintenance due to you occasionally and unconsciously adopting a slightly abrupt manner. Don’t let this worry you because when people get to know you they realise this opinion is wrong.
There is no doubting that you are a high maintenance person. You require a lot of attention, and when you don’t get it you react badly, often behaving like a spoilt brat. People know that they have to tip toe around you. You need to rid yourself of this desire to be doted on and adopt a more unpretentious and less demanding attitude.
