What I mean is: do you like to stay in a store for awhile and browse - or do you like to go in, get the things you like, and then pay for them and leave as soon as possible? Also, do you shop on spur of the moment, or do you use a list and stick to it and/or plan out what you want to purchase.
I myself am not particularly have a browsing style in the stores, particularly more so now that my health is not the best.
I like to plan ahead on what I plan to buy. I use a list "in my head"<and that's another story lol - I hate using a list: makes me feel "owld"<hahaha, sometimes even reciting to myself the items before I hit the store such as: "I'm going for blueberries, bananas, milk, bread, etc." I like to try to (when I take the bus) get in, get the items (usually food - I hate clothes shopping lol), pay for them (usually debit), and catch the bus all within half an hour. Our bus system is such that to get to one store, I depart off the bus about 25 mins past the hour, and then a return bus comes at 5 minutes TO the next hour and I'm usually on that return one lol. There are some instances where I will decide "on the spur of the moment" to go catch the bus, say to WalMart (because the movie theatre is in the same mall and sometimes I like to do the both - shop and catch a movie) in this regard I'll be more apt to browse a little at the WalMart).
So what about you? What is your shopping style (if you shop)?
There once was a girl who was very friendly, saying Hi to everyone she met. But as the years went by she either was rejected or made a lot of enemies. Consequently she became more and more reclusive to protect both herself and those she would no longer come into contact with: protecting herself from rejection and the others from her.
I try to use a list, usually on my phone. It's hard to remember otherwise. It's almost never just in-and-out. I will browse a bit since I'm there.
Unless I have a specific brand in mind, I often spend a lot of time comparing items. It can occasionally get overwhelming. There are so many things to consider: price, quality, quantity, nutritional content. With grocery shopping, I'm often thinking about sodium content which makes things challenging.
Also, unfortunately I have misophonia (hatred of certain sounds) around whistling. Most times there will be someone whistling at the grocery store and it really aggravates me. I am trying to remember to bring earplugs around with me so I have them when needed. If I don't have them I will quickly try to walk to another other end of the store if I hear it. I know that will sound funny to a lot of people, but that's the way it is.

I would prefer to have a list so that i don't forget the things i really need to get. But sometimes i end up buying things out of the blue, like when i suddenly see a rare item that just came out and it just happens to be one i'm really into or if it's something i feel i need or can be useful. If i see that i can afford it and i don't feel that it's too expensive. I eventually buy it. Normally though, i have good self control on how i spend my money.
Doing and saying the wrong things most of the time 24/7. Being me means having to endure people not liking me.
