    Recently one of the values I hold has been challenged an awfully lot... situations of conflict I have experienced or observed that boil down to rugged individualism vs awareness of social norms. I have started to feel very strongly that these two aspects need to be balanced.. and that while someone should be able to do, think, feel and behave however they'd like there is a certain amount of consideration they should have for their fellow beings. There is alot of Fe that is starting to make sense to me.
    You used to feel strongly that one was more important, now you feel that both are important? This seems to be how things have changed for me too. But I don't know that I have gone from valuing one thing to its opposite. Just from one side to a more balance between two sides.

    I dont feel like mine have changed. They've clearly experienced some being trampled on, but I havent really left any behind. With that said, I've either refined some, or refined how they get applied. If anything, many of mine from long ago are still held, but held more deeply or at some deeper level or perspective.

    Wait, this is not the unwritten rules thread, how did this happen. Is a mod trick me thinks.

    I like to try out a variety of ideas, lifestyles, and mentalities on for size--it's a way to 'test' principles. The good ones get solidified, refined, and confirmed; the 'bad' ones get ditched. Often, the details of a belief get cast aside, but the core remains.

    For example, a person may have identified with some particular political movement at some point in time and espoused its virtues. Over time, he was attracted to another political movement that had seemingly opposing ideals. This could very well be because he valued one particular general principle (e.g. freedom of personal choice and liberty) all along, but life experience taught him to refine the nuances and assumptions that he'd attached to that core value--and, as such, he found the same ideal better incorporated in a different political movement.

    This. Also, I went though some periods of discovering or coming to understand my values, but it was clear in this process that I always had them somwhere. I had never espoused the opposite, just perhaps hadn't considered that particular issue before.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
