Overcompensation is my bet
Yes, I imagine it would be. The idea that someone exists who is superior to you in effectively every measurable way is likely something beyond your capacity to imagine. The idea that I might eschew subtlety in favor of bluntness by design, not as some sort of subconscious mechanism beyond my control, must be equally unthinkable.
It's important to know one's limits I find. You seem to have missed that developmental stage of life. Just as while it's a pleasant thought if we work hard enough at something we can do whatever we want in life, it really isn't the case. You understand that, right?
You weren't going to be a starting NBA player no matter how hard you worked at basketball as a child.
You trying to understand my motivation for doing absolutely anything is akin to this. No matter how much work you put into it, there's really no way you'll ever be better than chance at guessing.
If I was concerned with being well liked, I could most more tactfully, have no fear. If I wanted to be loved I could manipulate things to that scenario also. Trivially. The reality is that I'm not concerned with being well liked. Legitimately. Not in a defensive "I'm worthless, what's the point" sort of way. I don't require the approval or support of random strangers who I share a discussion forum with. You apparently do, and that's fine. I hope that offers you some value. If it was my daughter I wouldn't be so blunt. Also, if it was daughter I would give a fuc[/i][/i]k about the outcome. As it is, I don't, I do find posts made by cartoon character that contribute nothing, not even humor annoying and pointless. Hence the reply.
Does that clear it up for you, ace? If not, let me know, and I'll see if I can film some sort of snack cake puppet show that might hold your interest long enough to get the point across.
