    Depends on who you intend to ask and what sort of day they've had I suppose. Too many god damn variables and as we're constantly developing there's never any 'final you' unless you close your eyes and ears and refuse to move or learn anything new and even then the tiniest thought could give you a brand new perspective. I'd go as far as saying someone can only be truly judged on their final day of earth. You only ever know who you are so far.

    'course such is the case however we may intuitively conjure up an average depiction of the current person we are based on such variables of our patterned thought process within large ranges of time. Estimations must constantly be used.

    In the random thought thread, I had simply thought of the image and decided to post it as a random thought. For this, I would think it's also able to show the truth in a being with empathy. Are we not most ourselves when we lie in bed thinking about what we think about before we sleep. The time of deepest thoughts and contemplation?
    Hm, that's an interesting theory, I like it. I think it might be true for me, and may be the reason why possibly some of the best conversations I've had in my life happened with friends when we stayed up later than we should have because we were enjoying the conversation too much to quit and go home/ go to bed. (Sometimes and sometimes not involving alcohol. Seems to only work for night owls, though.)

    Would early morning be the equivalent for those crazy early morning people?

    Tis a picture I believe may be used to express a number of different things.

    Oh absolutely. One may always find that deepest thoughts and musings are easily expressed at such a time. I'm not sure about the morning types though. Perhaps when everything is quiet and serenity exists a free and fresh mind exists in which one is not influenced much by external situations that forces a certain change in mindset.

    I dunno about thoughts spent lying in bed before sleep. I mean I spend an awful lot of time alone, so that probably holds true for me. But I would imagine extraverts (the only scientifically proven type difference) would be more themselves when around others.

    I feel like the same person when I'm sitting around alone as I do when around one particular friend, and only that one friend. My best friend since kindergarten (a probable ENFP). In both situations, I'm usually plucking at my ukulele while talking (alone, it's more of an internal dialogue, but still a dialogue), or building a house of cards (I totally built one that could support a full can of beer without bending or falling).

    So maybe, it's not necessarily when a person is alone in a serene environment, but when a person is at their most comfortable. "In their element" in other words. Also, the kierkegaardian stuff I was talking about earlier.
