  • I'll leave the semantics to others ;)


    I was actually evalutating myself a few days ago when catching up with this friend and realised that when meeting someone, I don't judge on the physical - I always have an intuitive feeling, and if I get to know the person further, I know that the intial impression is correct. I believe that we all have this ability but more often than not, people don't trust themselves. As an example, I know many, many women who have been wary of a man, dismissed their worries then ended up in unpleasant situations. It happens all the time. And how many times does hindsight play a part? "I knew I shouldn't have trusted them". It's all there.

    Your words are all too familiar Whirler, I have started to trust my own 'gut' feelings of intuition/sub conscious perception/ whatever quite a lot these days :).

  • I had a friend in the army. Looked like a square jawed, short haired, disciplined conformist, which is what he was. When he quit the army, he grew his hair, wore a bandana, chilled like you wouldn't believe and it took me ages to feel comfortable with his new look (and his new non-military attitude). Me? I dress smart, short hair, talk smart, play the part, get well paid but don't feel natural. When I retire, I will grow my hair and wear a bandana (maybe a virtual one). Appearances matter. Principles are mighty fine but they can cost, so I play the game. It's not a huge deal to me.
