    When you are young and still live at home or otherwise need to depend on your family for your physical well-being (food, shelter, etc), it can be dangerous to embrace conflict with them. Particularly if they are the type to withhold necessities if you are not toeing their line. This is especially true of narcissists who are incapable of seeing from another person's perspective, even their own child's. Often, the way to deal with a narcissist is to keep everything surface-level and nod and smile if you must to get through the day, and closely guard your inner life as your own. You don't owe anyone the revelation of your deepest thoughts and feelings. So, simply nodding and smiling and playing "cheerful and stupid" is a way of remaining in control of yourself when forced to deal with people like that.
    Well said.

    I think we all tend to forget that some people here are very young, inexperienced and may also live under a lot of pressure and strain that we may not always be aware of.

    You're...kidding...and does it say "regardless" as the definition?

    Edit:
    irregardless

    an erroneous word that, etymologically, means the exact opposite of what it is used to express, attested in non-standard writing from 1912, probably a blend of irrespective and regardless. Perhaps inspired by the double negative used as an emphatic.

    Yup...

    regardless.
    Origin:
    1910–15; ir- 2 (prob. after irrespective) + regardless

    Usage note:
    Irregardless is considered nonstandard because of the two negative elements ir- and -less. It was probably formed on the analogy of such words as irrespective, irrelevant, and irreparable. Those who use it, including on occasion educated speakers, may do so from a desire to add emphasis. Irregardless first appeared in the early 20th century and was perhaps popularized by its use in a comic radio program of the 1930s.

    Profound. I like it.

    This is the bad kind of moral relativism.

    STs and I get along like two parts of a well-oiled machine when circumstances go arai. That's about the only time I really know of that we typically operate seamlessly.

    Other than that they must make an impact and this just doesn't jive with me.

    Lots of impact needed in emergencies tho. In my view we work together prolly better than any other two types in a situation of that type.
