Let's say that there's a person
according to 4 personality rules s/he is a melancholic/phlegmatis
so s/he is quiet, analytical, perfectionis, not a natural born talker
And there's this one group
The group sing together "We hate fake people" together in perfect harmony
So they start to gossip people that according to them are "SoFake" (tm)
Let's say that s/he joined this group
the group interact, say names, shake hands
and then it occured to them that s/he wasn't really talkative and "Fun"
One by one, they all think to themselves. Damn this chic/dude is really boring. I wish s/he would ease up a bit! And opened his/her mouth!
So s/he tried to fit in, right? S/he tried to talk, act like the group wanted him/her to be
Yet s/he doesn't really comfortable doing that
Everytime s/he talk she feels like s/he's forcing it
What s/he likes to do is to laugh, join in the fun & listen
But the pressure is for him/her to be talkative, or else the group won't recognize s/he's there
Contribute to the group's value dang it! Or are you a bandit? Only want to receive don't want to send ah?
Sure, the group would notice the change, and the way s/he talk
Then in their mind they all sing in perfect harmony "S/he is Freakin Fake! Fake! Fakey Fakerson!"
That is one of a possible situation where I imagined a SoCalledFake person interact with a group.
My real questions are:
1) No one wants to be fake right.. What cause a person to be fake? Where's the pressure to be fake come from?
2) Are those Fakey Fakersons honestly know that they are faking it? If so, why are they continue to do that - considering that people generally hate inauthencity?
Commenters, please answer these or y'all would have nightmares tonight/tomorrow/the day after tomorrow.
