Doc rides a penny farthing cycle

 

Whether they are Young or Older,
People sometimes have some Problems

A Trubble shared should be a Trubble halved, And not be a Trubble Doubled!

ALL people have Problems
SOME of the time

SOME people have Problems
ALL of the time

It's important to REALLY THINK for YOURSELF!

PICK-YOUR-OWN PERSONALITY PARTS & ROLES

Contrary to what many people think about personality being pretty consistent, we tend to use whims and strategies of behaviour more than we'd like to admit.

We are a mixture of needs and ideas, some of which may indeed be consistent, and it helps us to know what to expect of ourselves and of other people for many things.

Look on it as a shorthand or code, much as we classify a small cat to distinguish it from a huge tiger or a dog or a bird. We bring things in from the past from fairy tales, TV or what people say.

Parts of us grow up while other parts don't so we can still be affected. There is a tendency now for greater flexibility over what makes up personality.

Some people wax lyrical about archetypes and that's fine if that suits you - archetypes don't need to be anything fancy, but just having an image of a teacher, a nurse, a cowboy or justice in general.

There probably are ones that many people tend to choose: guardian angels, fairy godmother, perhaps Freudian or Jungian ideas of what makes people tick or the world keep on turning.

So if people say you will or won't do something because of some 'profile' or test, take no notice!

People can feel more secure in a partnership or group setting which can have the advantage – or distinct disadvantage - of making anyone who is not included feel excluded and even more vulnerable

It is not easy, or even possible, to comply with a friend, relative, partner or group on Everything

Dissing has become a part of life, whether that means discounting someone, disrespecting, discrediting, disregarding, dismissing; or being rude or unsupportive - More on this HERE;

'Scapegoating, Abuse & One-upmanship' article HERE

Believe as you want to of yourself and let detractors worry about themselves instead


The World will be a Happier Place!

 

DO OTHER PEOPLE LABEL YOU?

You really can Pick-Your-Own Personality Parts or Roles rather than have someone else project their needs or Labelling onto you – hoping that you will comply!

See the Doc Matrix BookList on Mind & Personality on the right

 

Conflicts with other people, or feeling alienated can apply to ANY situation, home, work, college, friends

But it is not easy to comply with a friend, relative, partner or group on Everything

It can be hard and lonely to go against what others say, or want, or do, or what they require of YOU

On another Page here Doc talks about Groups and Cults, how easy it can be to get drawn into something, and how hard it can be to get away from the pressures or the environment itself
