Do you find game playing to your taste? Or do you prefer intimacy?
And interpersonal game playing, of course, is designed to avoid personal intimacy.
And in a society where we are all commodities, intimacy is inefficient.
And it is entirely appropriate to type commodities, and entirely inappropriate to type persons.
And most here see themselves as commodities to be typed. So why not you?
And why not follow on and read someone's body language rather than relate to them as another person.
But it is difficult to relate to another person if you see yourself as a commodity rather than a person.
And you are right, it is a cultural imperative to treat ourselves as commodities. And that is why we type ourselves here with all the pride of obedient children.
