Honestly, people should care about what others think of them otherwise people might think that they might show small signs of psychopathy (lack of empathy or getting along with others).
What matters is who people choose to be in accordance to the people who significantly matter to them.
Depends on a lot of things. Not just who it is but also what aspect of me we're talking about. So to give examples:
There are lots of examples I could give but I suppose what I'm trying to say is there's a lot of context to consider and I would struggle to give a yes or no answer because of that.
To an extent, if I'm trying to be friends with someone or if I'm going to see/be around them alot , I want to put my best self forward and not say or do something stupid( easier said then done) but, if it's some random people in a public place, then no,
To the extent that I care about correcting a lack of understanding and misinformation that a person has about me, where someone has a negative perception of me; second only to correcting a misunderstanding about the Bible and Christianity. I'm a caring person who has the gifts of empathy and sympathy for people. But, that can include tough love quite often.
I think it's slightly important to care about what others think. It's empathy. If you completely cared about nobody else's thoughts, then you'd probably be pretty selfish.
That being said I'd say I care too much about what others think, makes me stop doing things which I'd want to do.
No, never cared about other people's opinions. I just did whatever I wanted to do, no need to seek validation. But there were times when I did wonder what people would think if I did something, but I'd catch myself because I've went so long not caring, why start now?
