What I Discovered by Googling My Name

Have you ever Googled yourself?

I have, but that probably doesn’t come as a surprise to many of you who know how much of a narcissistic egomaniac I am.

Even if it’s in your nature to be more humble and reserved than I, I still recommend that you occasionally run a search of yourself at www.google.com, if only to find out how you are viewed by the world. The odds are what you find out will both be surprising and not so surprising as it was for me.

 

30 Problems That Only Extroverts (Or I) Understand

I came across this article on 30 Problems That Only Introverts Understand through someone else’s posting on Facebook. I understood none of the things on the list, which I presumed was because I am the opposite of an introvert.

And so I felt qualified to create the below list of 30 Problems That Only Extroverts Understand.

1) There is nothing more discomforting than silence.
2) There is nothing more frightening than being ignored.
3) There is nothing more insulting than being called boring.
4) When you are given the alternative of silence or death, you are not entirely sure the latter is not preferable.

 

The Nature of Being Judgmental

I am a very critical and judgmental person.

I recently realized how serious my critical nature has become when the first words out of my mouth to a person who had just completed making a perfectly thoughtful remark was, “But isn’t it…?” Being critical has become so second nature to me that I have developed a pattern of “disagree first, think later.”

It is admittedly an unattractive character trait.

 

Passionately Opinionated

René Descartes once said, “I think, therefore I am,” apparently to make the point that someone wondering whether or not he or she exists is, in and of itself, proof that something, an “I”, exists to do the thinking.

I suppose my equivalent would be “I opine, therefore I am,” to make the point that having an opinion and being judgmental is my raison d’être. There need not be thoughts involved.
