Are you emotionally secure? Do notice that you are easily influenced by what other's say about you, and do in relation to you?

Are you indifferent to what other's say about you, do in relation to you, and think about you?

Would you describe yourself as a self confident person? Why or why not?

We can probably play game of semantics with what this actually means, but yes: I've never had the urge to go beat someone up, or throw a tantrum if I didn't get my way, or something. Whether or not I'm able to readily brush off feeling used or expendable is itself another question.

Do notice that you are easily influenced by what other's say about you, and do in relation to you?

Yes, and it's a big, big problem.

Are you indifferent to what other's say about you, do in relation to you, and think about you?

No, there are certainly "tiers." For instance, I'd weigh the view of my favorite professors and my best friend over almost anyone else, and there are a whole slew of dipsh1ts--mostly on DDO, but that's mainly because I can sort of "choose" with whom I interact in real life--whose "opinions" I can laugh off. But, sure, there is supposedly wisdom in crowds.. and after a while it fcking hurts, man.

Would you describe yourself as a self confident person? Why or why not?

Probably not. I should be. I'm the last person to toot my own horn, but I've spent the last four years working my ars off with some pretty damn good results, hopefully grad school lined up, and an honors thesis that will (hopefully and plausibly, assuming things go well) be published. I've never been better positioned to achieve what I actually want, and yet I've probably never felt worse about my ability to accomplish it.

Eh, that's more candid than I'll ever be in public again, lol...

Given that I was linked to this in a PM, I assume that JMK wanted a response from me. Just a fore-warning so I'm not accused of attacking or passive-aggressively bishing at him.

I don't know what to say to this, honestly. I mean, yeah, I don't think anyone would be okay with feeling used or expendable.

Do notice that you are easily influenced by what other's say about you, and do in relation to you?

Yes, and it's a big, big problem.

Well, I guess that's a good way to look at life, in a way. Viewing those who care about you, or your future as having a more important opinion than others.

Would you describe yourself as a self confident person? Why or why not?

Probably not. I should be. I'm the last person to toot my own horn, but I've spent the last four years working my ars off with some pretty damn good results, hopefully grad school lined up, and an honors thesis that will (hopefully and plausibly, assuming things go well) be published.

I hope you get it published and you do well, which I'm sure you'll do!

No, and then yes.

No.

No, not particularly. I am confident in some areas, though.

No, I'm not influenced by others in the least. I try not to hurt them, but other than that, I don't care, and am not influenced by them.

Are you indifferent to what other's say about you, do in relation to you, and think about you?

Yes, it's that one. I just don't want to be noticed. I live like a ninja

I'm a loner who keeps to myself, but I'm capable of being the center of attention, larger than life or approaching and talking to people. I'm confident.

You had absolutely zero right to publish that. That you didn't understand that is predictable, but nevertheless unacceptable.

It doesn't matter how I feel about anything, the only one that really cares is me in the end. So ya I am emotionally secure. I don't need other peoples confirmation. Life goes on no matter how you feel or what happens to you.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

What do you mean by that? Are you judging me?

Do notice that you are easily influenced by what other's say about you, and do in relation to you?

Not in the least, unless you think I should be. Should I be influenced? DDO really needs a like system so that I know if my comments are meeting with approval by others. The I would know whether people think it is better for me to be influenced or not.

Are you indifferent to what other's say about you, do in relation to you, and think about you?

I'm completely indifferent, except that I have a constant craving to know if they read what I posted and gave me a like. PS did I mention that I think DDO should have a like system?

Would you describe yourself as a self confident person? Why or why not?

I'm completely self-confident. I got all my participation ribbons framed and hung over my desk so that I know my participation is rewarded with acknowledgement and non-judgementalism. I also love attending team building seminars and political correctness.

You sent the link to me. I assumed you wanted a response. The last time I spoke to you- the AMA thread- we know what happened. I was just putting a prelude, so I'm not accused of harrassing anyone.

I'm influenced a lot by others and manipulated if desperate enough. It's a trait I despise and disgust.

I am decently emotionally secure. I have an anxiety problem, so I suppose in that sense I am not always emotionally secure. At times, I allow my anxiety to control my actions, but I am working past that. Socially, I am generally emotionally secure, but there are times when I am not.

Do notice that you are easily influenced by what other's say about you, and do in relation to you?

I only allow people who have my respect to influence me.

Are you indifferent to what other's say about you, do in relation to you, and think about you?

I am not indifferent to people who I respect, but I am indifferent to people I do not respect.

Would you describe yourself as a self confident person? Why or why not?

Yes and no. Certain situations that cause me to feel anxious can really bring my self confidence down, but I would say I am generally a self confident person.

People think I'm arrogant, but I'm actually quite humble. What they don't understand is, were I to brag about myself as much as is warranted by how great I am, that's literally all I would ever talk about.

Which it is.
