    You said, "I'd like to change it if I could." A thought: Do you happen to have any kind of belief, something along these lines: that everyone is equal?

    Like, we are all star dust. Or, we were all born as vulnerable babies, but we were all heavily influenced by experiences, and not all of those were helpful experiences.

    Maybe strengthening (exploring) a belief like one of those would lessen misanthropy.

    I'm thinking I could do that kind of thing with the belief that's causing me trouble. Maybe it would work.
    In that case my misanthropy would get even worse. The only way to release me from my misanthropy would be by erasing a long episode of my life and as we all know the past can't be changed. I used to be normal and philanthropic, you know.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Because fantasy>reality, and it can be hard to reconcile the stark contrasts between human potential and the current state of humanity.

    Have you guys ever considered that this might actually be utopia?

    Cue: "oh god, listen to this guy, where's the exit, what do you mean there's no exit?"

    Nice party you guys got here. Is there bean dip?

    A most fascinating topic. I am quite interested in the psychology of misanthropes, misogynists and misandrists.

    The people who aren't bad are just faking it to get sex.

    You'd be surprised how attitudes suddenly become golden when the opposite sex nearby. One young woman changed my brother from being somewhat selfish and hostile to being generous and nice, I never thought it was possible.

    Is misanthropy useful in other ways than being a defense mechanism?

    I think simply accepting the reality of the situation is enough; why have a hatred that could lead to hopelessness?

    Deep, inspiring hatred ranks up there with sexual pleasure.

    It takes the ugly, boring superficial form of the despised and makes something intricate and mesmerizing.

    If I didn't have my hateful thoughts, my far more interesting but all too accurate reimaginings of the utterly bland "human race", I'd have no choice but to blindly flail my arms in violent discontent.
