    Default Do you craft a facade?

    A simple question; I presume anyone who does has thought on the subject prior.


    Answer as you wish.

    All the time. I live most of my life under it.. It has become so rare for me to not wear it that I start to forget that it is fake sometimes.

    Nah. I think of my personality more like a rubik's cube in terms of how I can display certain elements/shades/dimensions, by making minor adjustments [in a given situation, etc]. It's still all me. No deception, artificiality. I just only turn out what I want, when I want. I figure it's adaptive behavior- element of the innate fluidity within the human condition.

    'Craft' implies deliberateness. I wouldn't say I do it deliberately, but I reflexively show off parts of my personality in certain settings and other parts of my personality in other settings.

    It's almost moot to talk about it in my case because I tend to keep to myself most of the time anyway.

    Creating a façade has never appealed to me. Expending a lot of energy to pretend I'm someone I'm not doesn't seem to be worth the effort.

    Yes. People consistently tell me that I am too reserved and don't open up enough (according to them, I don't say what's on my mind much of the time... whatever that means) especially F types.

    Sometimes it's a anti-image of just being quiet and disappearing. Other than that I'm rather transparent. ha.

    The Real Self and the Facade

    The hollow man has a facade but doesn't know it.

    A mensch knows he has a real self and a facade and is able to set one off against the other.

    In fact humour and insight come from the conscious interplay between the real self and the facade.

    But I confess I cling to the real self and despise the facade. God help me.

    Absolutely. I wouldn't have made it without it. Or maybe I would have made it further
