Askia Roberts Professor Mallory AMIR 1001 February 15 2005 I never really cared about what people thought My confidence immaturity and ignorance kept me blind to what others thought of me This quickly changed as I got older Out of sheer boredom I begin weight training and after about six months I started to notice a change in the way people treated me It was never always the same but indeed different People paid attention to me more Out of their analysis the comments that transpired were shocking From my family I would hear I know you are probably involved with a lot of woman just wear a condom and dont bring home any babies On the surface that seems to be normal but I never received that treatment from anyone I was the nerd I was usually described as quiet and with a very innocent personality My friends and associates now described as the ladies man but this could not be further from the truth It was now harder for any body to take me serious including women Every body I met for the first time assumed I played football When I realized this I knew I was perceived as the dumb jock My occupation did not help either I was a lifeguard and aerobic instructor Of course this added to the perceptions I had mixed emotions about the way people perceived but overtime I began to use this to my advantage I noticed when I let people assume I was the dumb jock they seem to be very impressed of what I assumed to be natural common sense and average intelligence So when people made comments that were bred out of this stereotype I just laughed it with a comment that neither confirmed and negated it
