    Default People scared of independant thinkers

    I am a competent, strong willed independant thinker. When I want something, I go for it.

    This disturbs a lot of people, because I cannot be controlled or predicted, and they know I'm quite intelligent and able to do what I set out to do.

    So, is there anything I can do to... not freak people out?

    Perform acts of service and good deeds?

    It seems as if, no matter how hard I try, people will always believe I'm some mindless unicron that's going to eventually destroy the world or something.

    No. Just go after what you desire. If you ever become wealthy, donate a little here and there, just to show all the people you've intimidated through the years that you have a warm teddybear heart under your hard exoskeleton

    You can reframe anything to sound good. Once you do make it then it changes to people admiring you and wanting your money.

    Great! Here's a challenge: Reframe the following to make them sound good, if people go after your money blame only yourself

    1. You are a sewage extractor when a deuce floods public property you dive in.
    2. You still live in your parents basement.
    3. You are a strong supporter of Sarah Palin.

    I would apologize for hijacking the thread but I'm taking what I want.

    Has someone actually approached you about this, or are you just projecting? What kind of feedback have you been receiving? I doubt that the world is as stacked up against you as you seem to think it is, frankly...and if it is, it might not be for the reasons you've listed alone.

    Maybe they're just tired of hearing you talk about yourself and how awesome you are all the time.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    If you have this problem, and if you care to fix it, then temper it a bit. Count to 10 before you say or do something 'extreme' in the moment; practice overanalyzing in order to teach yourself about mental balance, and so on.

    Whether it's a problem or whether it's worth fixing are other questions. Not giving a damn is actually a viable option.
