Does it mean that you try telling me something about me?

  • "What am I like" is a question, though perhaps a rhetorical one. Could have several different meanings, depending on context. – Hot Licks Oct 24 '17 at 12:07
  • I already forgot where I saw it, but you can made me know another meaning, thanks :) – libliboom Oct 24 '17 at 12:34

Your question, 'What am I like?' could have two meanings depending on the intonation.

If you were to ask someone, with sincerity, 'what am I like?', then yes, it means as you suggest, tell me what I am like (something about myself).

If someone has done something silly and asks, 'what am I like?' with emphasis and raised pitch on 'what' and 'like', it then becomes a rhetorical question - more of a statement.
