    I haven't decided if I'm going to post any. I haven't been too active here yet, so maybe after people have gotten to know me more.

    <--- Some people here don't like it.

    If they are unstable enough to judge me by a picture, I don't want anything to do with them anyway.

    Pictures of me are strewn across this site. I am the same everywhere, in person, online, stateside, nationwide, or international I'm the same little old me no matter what. So, I have no objection to others knowing what I look like. As a person, I'm open any way.

    It is awfully difficult to show my pictures online. It possibly may give a perception that may intercede with the perception of my writings therefore my writings may have a lower value. In honesty, It's not easy to believe it's truly a positive for those who value their own words to show their picture.

    i just do not understand that disconnect....why the need to separate all of it...is it not all you? i feel so much more understood if someone not only hears what i say but hears where my emphasis is...my tone and inflection...the expressions on my face while i'm saying it...words can appear so flat.

    I've posted pictures and I've posted videos... I like the humanizing effect that it offers

    yeah me too. i'm interested in hearing the thoughts of people...and the more information i have of the person saying them the more accurately i understand their meaning.

    ^ very much my thought on the matter... when you know who you're talking to you get more of the entire picture of WHY they are the way they are

    Smile

    In a safe environment, I make myself visible, while in an unsafe environment, I make myself invisible.

    So I was surprised to discover this is an unsafe environment and I removed my picture and personal details.

    But just as the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland leaves his smile behind, I have left my real first name with you.

    I must admit I like safe environments and I like being the centre of attention, but only as long as the attention is nourishing. When the attention turns toxic, I put on my cloak of invisibility.

    It's a question of the centre and the margins. When I am likely to be loved, I move to the centre, and when I am likely to be hated, I move to the margin.

    And this is why a group of three is more stable than a group of two. For in a group of three we have a choice of being in the in pair or on the outer. And when the relationships are nourishing, it is best to be in the in pair. And when the relationships are toxic, it is better to be the odd one out. But as relationships move between nourishing and toxic, so we can move between the in pair and the odd one out. And it is this movement that keeps the triad stable. While in the dyad, you only have one choice. And in the triad, you have two choices, the in group or the margin. And more choices means more stability.

    And here we have many more members that three, so there are many more choices than two, and so Typology Central is remarkably stable. In fact it is so stable, we might call it the never-ending-conversation.

    So Central is stable and toxic - an interesting combination.
