I approach this in a slightly differrent manner.
I believe that one should not be completely open to strangers and should leave some knowledge about him/her only to people he/she cares about. Being able to know someone more than others do is a gift you could give your colleagues (they know more then a stranger), your friends (you know some of your thoughts), your relatives (they know your daily life) and so on. I personally find it nice if someone shows that I'm important to her/him by sharing more of that knowledge with me.

That are also a few other reasons to not talk about oneself that I won't share with Google's caches as Google is not someone I know ;)
