Do you say "yes" when someone asks if you if you are ok nearly every time regardless of how happy or unhappy you are?

Posted by: Zylorarchy

Unlike every other poll I have done (and most polls), this is not simply Opinion A vs Opinion B, but more a collection of data. I am merely curious as to how honest people are in response to this question.

  • Yes

  • No

  • Regardless of my mood, I will almost always say yes. I am not an open emotional person and so naturally do not talking about my "problems".

  • Yes, ,because I don't like to engage in inane conversations with people about my life as I do not care about theirs either.

  • Knee-jerk reaction, and as others have said on this side, just to get rid of the matter.

  • if i say no, then i have to explain why and saying why is too personal to share. i also am not one of those people who talk about their life when on one asks them. i believe and have noticed that almost every time someone asks me how i am doing, its small talk. they honestly wouldnt care unless i said bad or something.

  • To be completely honest, I don't really care enough to talk about my issues.

  • I'll tell someone if I'm unhappy when they ask. Although, I won't burden them with my situation.

  • If they ask how I am and things are bad, I normally reply with the "Could be better.."

Oh and I forgot about my Ad blocker poll when writing the description of this poll, sorry... My bad.

It depends. Sometimes I do just say "yes" to avoid talking to a certain person. Sometimes, if my day is especially terrible, I tell them so. If they ask why I tell them, then I usually am on my way.

OP, what difference did having your ad blocker on make?

@TheBathead: I said this poll was the first I did merely to "gather data" rather than "Opinion A vs Opinion B". Where as in fact my poll aboutt Ad blocking was the first of mine that did that.

OP, maybe I'm the one to blame; looking back, you clearly said "poll."
