    Yeah, I hate to throw a spanner in the works, but although I adapt like a mofo and pretty much chameleon into whatever a situation or crowd most wants/requires, I DO NOT view this as not being myself and I do believe that this behaviour IS exactly in line with my inner self. Because my inner self believes that it's important and useful to do this, and moreover, I'm still always being the same person, still saying the same things, having the same attitudes and opinions - all I'm doing is 'translating' them into a different presentation, one that's more likely to reach the current audience. I don't change what I think or even the way I think, feel or believe. I just change the way I manifest it; I change the way I present it.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I was expecting this test to ask different kinds of questions when I clicked the link.
    If this test were about policing myself to do good and be correct(which I thought it was) I'd probably get a 90.

    This test almost seems to be asking "how much are you a Type Three?".

    I suspect that he self-monitors plenty, he just goes for the abrasive effect instead of the agreeable effect.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'd imagine there is a case for changing oneself to match who you want to present yourself to be.

    There was a local comedian who best joke was:
    I want a girl who accepts me for who I'm pretending to be.
    Some of us are trying to be someone we want to be, but aren't yet. Though, I wouldn't call it pretending.

    Yes. This is the way I would like to be.

    Just realized. That this was a response to the running convo. you were having with Economica, not a response to substitutes post.

    True? If not, why did his post make you want to lie down?

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
