    Default Why do you care?

    More and more people are starting threads about what other people think of them. Why on earth do you do that?! Is this some kind of egotripping? Are you just insecure? What's the reason for all these topics?

    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.

    The reasons you mentionned are possible. But it's also enriching to learn how you are perceived. And why that is. It helps you realize what you put out there. Maybe they're wrong about how you are, but that could be both because of their own coloured glasses as well as your own projection towards the outer world. And potentially, it's something you can change. It's hard to judge this without the input of others, as you're too closely involved (quite literally) to really judge this objectively.

    And who knows...they may actually see something that *is* very much you but you are totally oblivious of. Wouldn't you wanna know?

    I don't need an ego boost, I'm not as insecure as you might think, and basically, my reasons are the same as everyone elses,... To be loved,...

    I think the point is why not care? It's not what you think of them as a person, but as a persona. Not ego-tripping, but diving into the minds of others to find a way to be the change we seek....
    Stupid people piss me off....
    no wonder I get angry with myself!!! lol

    I don't really care. I'm not trying to be someone who I'm not just to please others. I am who I am and if other people don't like it, well, too bad for them then. I'm not going to change because someone out there doesn't like me.

    It's kinda like this; "Only the cool kids pee their pants, you ain't cool unless you pee your pants".

    Maybe you won't change, but at least you'd be aware of a problem when you're around certain people. I find it just gives me a good understanding of what to expect from others.

    Personally, if I'm aware of the fact that something I do or say bothers someone and it's someone I care about, well then I don't wanna keep doing it around them. I don't want them to be uncomfortable around me. And I'm virtually oblivious to most signs people think I should pick up on....so I've gotta be told.

    That's my 2c.

    Honestly, why do people bitch and whine about people bitching and whining?...I can't even comment on this without looking like I'm actually bitching and whining myself, oh, the humanity!... We all live on the same rock, so get used to it.

    ^ Are you indicating that I was bitching and whining?
