Sometimes I get self-conscious about my table image when I realise I'm pegged as a certain type of player and beleive they are wrong about it but I know they're going to play with me that way.
If they think I'm a donk it can force me to really tighten up my range, when other players open their range up so wide, its almost like the same feeling of being accused of a crime you didnt commit, theres nothing you can do to escape it apart from wait to prove them wrong.
Do you get what I'm talking about?

A certain table image can be a good thing, especially when you are aware of it . It's nothing to be self-conscious about. If you are perceived as a nit you can try to open your range a bit amd vice versa .
Take advantage of it, don't try to prove them wrong at all costs.

I agree completely with Shaetano.
It all falls into the category of keeping people guessing and changing gears.
If someone perceives you as 'donkey calling' one moment and the next you're doing the same thing with the nuts you're gonna get paid much better.
