    I never got the whole respecting talent and creativity thing. I mean, I like it, but why does that mean I would respect the people who have it any more than anyone else? It's not as if it's something you have to strive for, you're just born with it - it'd be like respecting someone for being wealthy when they just inherited it all from their parents. I'd be happy for them and all, but wouldn't see it as a reason they deserve any particular respect.

    Self-sacrifice... up to a point yeah, but when it becomes pure pointless martyrdom (often out of fear of confrontation or change), that's when my respect disappears.

    Actually, I'll clarify now that you've poked at this (and you're right):

    In those cases, it is not necessarily the person I am enamored with, it's the talent itself. So you're right, it's only 'attached' to the person, it's not really "them," but it's just hard to completely remove the talent from the individual since it manifests itself THROUGH that individual.

    I respect Christian Bale's acting talent, for example, but I'm rather disappointed in his personal character.

    Self-sacrifice... up to a point yeah, but when it becomes pure pointless martyrdom (often out of fear of confrontation or change), that's when my respect disappears.
    I wasn't considering unhealthy sacrifice or martyrdom when I was thinking of self-sacrifice, I mean it in the purest, best, most loving way where it's a gift, not a burden or means of obligating others.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    -Optimistic people with "can do" attitudes who are able to learn and make adjustments from their failures and will not stop until they get it right.
    -Independent thinkers
    -Those who are able to separate themselves from their emotions and view things objectively.

    I respect people who are strong.

    By strong I mean, intelligent.

    By intelligent I mean those who are able to evolve and recognize truths and logic beyond their own perceptions.

    People who are open mined, strong willed, and self disciplined. People who take responsibility for their own actions, and don't allow the fears of society to dictate who they will be or how they will treat others. I respect people who are confident and yes successful.

    I forgot to add, people who are not judgmental.

    I respect the type I personally want to be: strong, confident, independent visionaries capable of problem solving on a local and global level.

    I respect various people ... but above all others: people who are competent.

    I don't respect competence, but more I respect qualities the person possessed that cannot be taught and learned. Academics and intelligence does not express all the qualities a person has, and alot of people have virtues and capabilites that are not expressed in this society, simply because they do not have a chance to do so. I also respect my opponents and antagonists, but this really depends on what character that person has.

    I however , do not respect people who have a blind adherence to authority and societal norms and could not think on their own.
