Tell About

  • October 18, 2013, 6:44pm

I'm from the US, and have lived outside Washington DC most of my life. I think "telling about" is so ingrained, one doesn't think about it. It also seems to me there is a subtle difference between the two phrases. If you tell someone about yourself you are more apt to be relating "facts and figures" (where you went to school, what you hold a degree in, etc) whereas if you are talking about yourself, its more personal information (for instance, dreams and ambitions), possibly even going as far as a little egotistical monologue.
