I said 5 to average between when I'm a 0 and a 10. XD I want to act, and I certainly can, but sometimes I don't bother. :)0

I'm pretty bad honestly, but saying that, I've never really tried.

I voted 4, but I'm really not very sure how I'd be. I like to think I could convey emotion the same way I can when I'm home alone talking to myself or recording myself brainstorming about an idea, but I've never really had any good chance to try real acting.

I would say 5 ,because i do know im pretending to be a bird,and also pretending to be a furry,but sometimes i forget it and talk like i am myself,so i forget the pretending. :)

In a way, I'm always acting. I prefer to take on the role someone wants than to be myself (cause real me is really weird and kind of a dick). I can easily go from a strong leader to a faithful follower, brave to weak, foreground to background. The only people who really know me are my closest friends when we're alone, my family doesn't even like the real me. They prefer their pretty, loyal academic and successful daughter. And I'm ok playing a role, do it all the time in drama club (I also go to a drama club) and either way, its not like I completely change, I'm always still me, just wearing a different mask (or insert some other poetic bs in here). So I guess I'd be a 9 or something, I don't know.

I have zero no to lie successfully, and very limited desire to do so. That isn't exactly what you asked, but I'm not the only one of your commenters who equates that kind of acting with lying. I'd say I'd rather let it all hang out and take the consequences, but not doing that isn't even an option. in the long term, maybe it never is.

I'd say about 6-7
Although that might be because people just naturally take my word for something xD Or that they don't look too deeply into what I say for whatever reason

If I'm just lying as my usual flat self then 10/10 no one can tell the difference.
Anything else, like trying to fake emote, and I suck.

Well, there's a huge difference between stage acting and pretending you feel a different way in real life. Stage acting is 98% about the preparation you do for the character, the thought you put into their every objective in every scene. Someone could easily be a phenomenal actor and still be impossibly easy to read, and likewise a person who can disguise their every emotion and intention could totally suck at stage acting. They're different skill sets.

I've been in theatre my entire life, and like to think I'm a decent to good stage actor, but I'm awful at lying on the spot. People always know.

I have no idea to be honest, I never tried it.
I'm always honest and be myself because I don't like to pretend being someone I'm not, but at the same time I'm not one to unconsciously express my mood/feelings and no one really knows what's going on inside me. Like I get a gift on Christmas and my mother keeps asking me if I'm actually happy with it. Like yeah I'm throwing a party inside my head, but I don't feel the need to yell and jump around or do anything like that. My emotions are more inside of me than outside, it irritates everyone around me but whatever, it's just how I am :d
I have been told I'm a good liar before, but I rarely lie because I hate it and always feel like I'm horrible at it and everyone can see right through me, so I usually just avoid getting into situations like that. I really dont know where I would be at when having to fit a role and get into a character. It's not literally lying but just representing the character.
Big shrugs, no idea.

When it comes to playing a joke on someone, I'll start laughing way too early to be taken seriously. If we're talking about hiding emotional pain though, I'd say I'm fairly good at that when I want to be.

As for anxiety, it really has to do with if others can read my body-language, though people often don't know until I excuse myself suddenly or if I literally just tell them I'm feeling symptoms.
