    Looks like a 100 lb wooly bully, in the coveralls of someone else.
    This guy is a terrible mechanic and his personality is a storm cloud on a sunny day.

    Definitely familiar with those types.

    Funny as hell when one of the more clueless employees break something.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Class will tell

    Anyway, this thread has gotten me all confused. I tend not to care about my place in society, I just do what I do, however, for some reason, this has piqued my interest.

    As an adult, I care more about where I live and the people I'm around because it tends to reflect on others how you are.
    The quality of the person/people is very important, not so much the look, although looks are the first impression.

    I have never cared about that. I have found that the force of my personality is often so strong that I can win people over if I ever want to, when I want to.

    Perhaps. I tend to take everyone individually and watch for the subtle signs in their physical behavior to determine their honesty and other personality traits. However, honesty is a huge thing for me. If a person is not honest, I don't care about their other personality traits and its easy for me to tell if someone is honest. Often you can pick out a very good person, in the middle of a group of not so nice people, if you know what to look for.

    That's true but mainly it's for personal convenience.
    I work around some real ****ty people, along with some decent folks.

    I tend to stay away from the ****ty, to avoid all the drama that goes along with them.
    The people who attempt to suck the resources out of all around them.
    (The guys always asking for money, cig's, a ride home/to work, etc.)

    I do tend to watch before interacting, to determine who the person really is.
    Even somewhat dishonest people can be manipulated into supporting you.

    It sounds wrong but it's mostly for self protection/preservation.

    I tend to avoid people who bring up drama because its annoying. I don't care if your life isn't perfect, nobody's is, get over it and make it better (unless there is a real problem, like a lack of food, health care, a proper education, real emotional issues, etc, however your grandma offending you is not a real problem). (not you personally, harry, this is more of a general attitude that I have)

    I don't like to manipulate people emotionally, its not honest. However, what I mean is that I can dominate a room and have plenty of charisma, when I want to, but its emotionally draining for me to do so as I am an introvert.

    I do as well.
    There are certain situations where it is unavoidable though, like at work.
    More or less alludes to my next point.

    I hate it, but like right now, I have to work with a guy whose life is a complete cluster**** and he's regularly dishonest.
    I don't like working around people like that, at all, but for the time being it isn't going to change.

    I've worked him over to the point where he doesn't bother me too much.
    Had to do some emotional manipulation though, not happy about it but it is, what it is.

    Introvert here too, although when I'm comfortable around people, I tend to goof around a lot.

    I have a way of looking at people when they are doing wrong that makes them feel guilty, assuming they also believe they are doing wrong.

    It works great on almost anyone, except for my children (they are too used to me). I think it works because I am in some ways a natural leader, even though I don't really enjoy being a leader or being in charge. I would prefer that everyone knows what the right thing is and they just do it without being told to.
