We had a motivational speaker who used to come to our office quite frequently, but I think he finally gave up on us. Or at least managment gave up on us and quit hiring him. Anyhoo, he explained once that our feelings of self-esteem usually hinge on how lovable and/or capable we feel. We all long to be both, but sometimes the pendulum swings more one way than the other; a person who feels inadequate intelligence wise might try to be funny, charming, a doormat, etc., to win friends, while another who impresses people with their intelligence might come off as cold and aloof.
My point is: I see a lot of posters here who really do fall in one catagory or the other. There are those whose posts we love because they always amuse and those whose posts we love because they always enlighten, and of course there are those who consistently do both So how do you perceive yourself? Do you think you’re equally lovable and capable or do you see yourself leaning more one way or t’other? Even more interesting, how do you perceive some of your fellow posters?
I read this mb because I want to be capable, but don’t post too much to GD or GQ because I don’t feel so capable. But I try really hard in MPSIMS to be lovable Probably too hard
