I'm already extremely self-conscious, so I'm usually tense all the time. I get really nervous when being watched but the nervousness does not show that much in my behaviour. I appear very calm. I try to pretend that I'm busy and that I don't notice people observing me. However, I mostly can't hide my smile because I know people are watching me and it's especially funny when people try to hide it.
I become alert. I don't generally talk much when being observed, but of course I have to pick it up first. Usually If there is someone around I know I start talking to them to try and shake the observer off or I just go into a deep thought and try to ignore them.
I don't generally like being observed for too long.
I stop talking almost completely. I keep watching them subtly to see if they're still watching me, then try to move behind one of my friends to hide.
I really don't like being watched, I keep thinking there's something on my face =.=
I have had this happen to me in the past several time so I am quite aware now when it happens. There are a small group of people in this world that cause me to feel like I need to "prove" myself to them. Meaning that I need to magnify parts of my personality that I want them to understand. People that cause me to act like this are in essence non-responsive, but clearly have ideas going on under the surface. They just don't share them. The thing is though when I do try to mangify my personality it doesn't come out correctly. It makes me appear warped and egotistical. As such when I feel like this is starting I tone it down a lot. After a while I will consciously tell myself to stop enough that I don't need to work on it further.
If someone directly tells me they are observing me, this can happen. I tell myself not to though. The thing is though I feel "funny" on the inside and in the beginning I won't feel like I am giving an accurate picture of myself. So really, I hate it when people tell me they are observing me. Cause by saying that, they won't observe me in the most accurate way possible.
