    Try to shorten the things you want to say.
    • Never say anything more then you need to say. (Example: Correct "What are you doing after school?", "Nothing." Incorrect, "What are you doing after school?", "I'm gonna go home, sit down, read a book, eat supper and then maybe go shopping.") Keep the details to a minimum.

    Don't lose your temper, as it can make you look crazy and people will think that you have anger issues, something which you (hopefully) would not want someone to think. Being calm when someone makes you angry gives you the advantage, it also makes you seem more mysterious since you can keep your emotions in check.

    Sit in parks or next to trees and write in a notepad, draw, or read. You can draw what you are feeling, write in your journal, read books, listen to music, or just watch your surroundings. Basically anything that would make people think that you are quiet and mysterious, like you are content with yourself and you do not need other people, and you can just keep on living.

    Decide which parts of your personality you want to always keep on display, and which parts you want others to only catch a glimpse of. For example, you might let everyone know you don't like reading, but you might only let it slip out every now and then that you're deathly afraid of speaking in public.

    Often just read a book or draw. Don't skip rope or go play football or something like that. If you're going swimming or ice skating, simply go around just floating or looking about. Playing on rafts or using a bar to skate aren't very clever ways to make people think you're all that mysterious.

    Don't watch T.V too much. You can when you're alone. Watching T.V may seem harmless enough, but if you get caught watching shows like Zoey 101 or Wizards of Waverly Place, people are going to think you're playing with them, which you are. But you don't want them to discover that!!

    Wear deep purples, black, deep reds, forest greens, anything with a dark flair. Pair your outfit with feminine things like long vintage necklaces, beaded black and purple earrings. Wear shorter skirts with fishnet stockings and colored tights. This is a really cool look.

    Don't talk a lot about your opinions and feelings, except maybe to very close friends and family. Try not to let expression show on your face. If you aren't obvious about your emotions, you will seem even more mysterious.


  • Don't act desperate or pathetic in front of people. And if you see your enemy or something then don't let her/him know that you hate them
  • Never ever snub anyone. If someone talks to you when you planned to talk to another group, keep the conversation short and sweet.
  • It's good to have a few friends, otherwise people will just think you're just antisocial.
  • Keep yourself clean and healthy, if you are going for the quiet and mysterious look then you have to be healthy. People will think you have problems if you're overweight and not really healthy.
  • Try to keep an emotionless face, don't show any emotion.
  • Try to pay attention in class, don't goof off.
  • Don't raise your hand much in class.
  • When in a group conversation, like circles or tables, try to position yourself at a distance from the others. However, it's best to avoid leaving the group entirely.


  • Don't do anything if it makes you uncomfortable or dislike it.
  • Being too mysterious could make people -- especially your parents -- think that you're up to something not good. Keep it low, and don't go overboard.
  • Try to mix your true self in with all of this as well.
  • People could start thinking you don't like them anymore and stop bothering you and ignore you and move on even. If you want to keep your friends, don't do this for a very long period. It's not worth being a loner, even if it is fun.
  • Your friends might think something is wrong.
  • You may be classed as moody.
