    Frustrated. :steam: Why can't people think ahead? Why are they so stuck in their own little worlds, categorically refusing to make any changes or even acknowledge that there have to be changes in order for things to progress? Can't they feel that they're suffocating through all the whining? It's difficult and sad to watch because sooner or later it's going to catch up to them and it will be twice as difficult to change things. I feel helpless because I know I could help but I can't force people do things they feel so strongly about not doing.

    This is (one of ) my theory's about People:

    People, like electricity, tend to take the path of least resistance. That path is the one that was laid down in their childhood, that motivated them. If they wanted to prove themselves worthy, then they move through life trying to prove themselves (which to most looks very hard); if they were taught to be victims, they act as such, always taking, never giving; if they had to assume more responsibility than their right, they only know work as joy. If this known path, this path of least resistance, ever gets too hard, they will become apathetic or turn to addiction to cope. To change this path, this pattern, only intensive therapy and consciousness will work, and even that will be feel anathema to their 'real' personality underlying it all, so they will still not feel at peace. Or they might, but it will take a very long time, as in years and years.

    Of course to us, none of it makes logical sense. And this is the only explanation why: Because at some point for them, this was the logical way to be for them. It's the breaking OUT of the pattern that is nearly impossible, once it's set in the formative years.

    It's only if they were basically left alone to grow into their own personality within a nurturing environment (first do no harm) that they could be actualized and healthy as an individual.

    I feel that AA's outlook on humanity is terribly depressing.

    Feeling doubtful that I'll have a positive outcome after making a first move with someone. Maybe I'll be surprised, but still, I'm not holding my breath that the person will show the same level of interest in me as I do them.

    Maybe I'm really an INTJ in disguise. Does that make you feel better?

    Tonight I went to dinner with a Nobel Laureate in chemistry. Genetics to be precise. He was an ENTP as exemplified by everything he said. At 80 he still was so brilliantly on top of every aspect of the conversation and so very quick witted. He even gave us a bunch of rules to follow that read like the ultimate Ti/Fe bible of how to get shit done in science.

    But the most fascinating thing he said...

    "Evolution favors those who are normal. If you dont conform you get killed....find the bright young kids who are very different and gifted at very specific tasks and cherish them, recognizing they will likely fail at most things but excel at those few very specific gifts they have...those gifts are not likely to be carried along genetically given how unusual those kids are....find those who excel at very unusual things and cherish them"

    I dont know why, perhaps my silly need for affirmation, but to hear someone so exceptionally clever say it is okay to be different, to see the world in a way others may not understand? It was awesome.
