    Inflated makes it sound, you know, as if it's not true.

    You're probably missing a drum circle somewhere or a yoga retreat.

    Ouch. I'd much rather be reviled than ignored. Good work!

    The question here is quite naturally about individual popularity.

    And this of course religiously ignores the group element of popularity.

    For if there were no group manners and mores to conform to, there would be no individual popularity.

    So individual popularity is completely dependent on the group.

    So the important question to ask, "Is this a good group or a bad group?".

    We might ask, "Why is almost everyone here anonymous?".

    And why are their physical anonymity so well matched by their psychological mask?

    We might ask, "What have they got to hide?".

    And the answer tragically comes back as, "Only themselves".

    They have never learn self respect in their families, their schools, from their peers, or in the media.

    But they have learnt to hide themselves and their shame.

    And they hide their shame behind a false bravado that only comes from belonging to a group.

    And it is the group that facilitates and hides their shame.

    This group has all the qualities of a dysfunctional family - mothered by Mrs Briggs and Mrs Myers.

    I definitely agree with this. This is why I sometimes drop out for a couple weeks. I feel ambivalent about my "socializing" here. It's unreal, it's superficial, it's depersonalized.

    ^I give you a two because I think you're mimicking arousal.

    Or are you really pleased to see me?

    You of all of us should respect the power bestowed by delusions. Feed the subconscious so your conscious self can reap the benefits. That's the point of any religion, not just MBTI

    There is an awful lot of truth in this.

    For whatever you feed your unconscious will produce a harvest - and by their fruits you shall know them.

    So it is vitally important to know what you are feeding your unconscious.

    It is important to know the quality of the groups you join.

    Just as it is important to know the quality of the persons you make love to.

    For both your group and your lover will have a profound effect on your unconscious.

    And it is the quality of your unconscious that will set the quality of your life.

    I care not what others think of me.
    I am what I am, I am genuine, and I am consistent.
    If you like me that's great; if you don't that's fine too.
    Always willing to discuss discrepancies with others.

    Lead, follow, or get the fuck out the way.
    I made the choice to lead shortly after birth, but I know I can't do it all on my own, and I respect those that have helped me in all my endeavors thus far, and have helped them to achieve that which is important to them as it surfaced in their lives.
