i have become increasingly disappointed by the lack of congruity between how people project themselves and how they actually are.
are people naturally inclined to present themselves as having more substance than they do, or less? i.e., will they take liberties with reality
could this be a symptom of the tendency people have to favor themselves rather than self-applying the same critique given to other things?
are people inclined to mimic and absorb things in order to form their self-identity?
do they do it on purpose, or do they suffer from some degree of delusion?
what purpose, ultimately, does one's opinion of one's self serve?
