    Quite, that's why I never acted like that in my teens. Other people's opinions never really mattered enough to me for me to be so afraid of the hold they might have over me. I think that sort of rebellious mindset comes from a fear almost of engulfment, of being so overwhelmed by another person's thoughts and feelings that the only defense is to be radically different to them in every respect. I suppose someone with a secure sense of self in the first place doesn't need to go to such lengths.

    It's funny how much teenage rebels often end up resembling their parents once they reach middle age...

    Actually, my last post belatedly caused me to think of another one:


    In order to rebel against your own rebeliousness, you refuse to rebel

    Is that an INFP trait? Cool. Cos I'm only 5% E and I need artistic release when I'm alone. It's something I can't do without.

    Hmm...sorry for my belated reply.
    My point about being all emo, and rebelling in this way seeming like a good thing is sometimes people remember the idealist state they were trying to achieve, and retain a certain affection for it, and even respect. I do reliese this isn't always the case, I'd be willing to compromise for acceptance....which often happens when a generation choses a rebel persona. Examples in case, the James Dean persona, the 1960's hippie etc. They often get villified at the height of popularity, and then get integrated into the general land scape, and often the next generation, or even the next one admires the ideals behind it, and you have a revival. What's not to love, tortured artist souls, desperate to express themselves but feel suppressed, disconnected,and misunderstood. I missed out by about ten years, I'd have made a great emo kid.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.

    You refuse to admit that some people are truly evil, despite having every contrary evidence infront of you.

    When your sitting in a park filled with flowers, you suddenly start crying as a rowdy SP drunkard tramples on few, an incident which you interperate as symbolic and metaphorical in nature.
    "Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."
