Simfish/InquilineKea's Thoughts


common inequalities that seem like equalities

– neat != organized. one can be organized and still be a mess. having things on the floor may be one way to prioritize the most important things (as long as one is careful not to turn the mess into a disorganized one)

– self-centered != reluctant to share. a self-centered person can be incredibly generous in sharing things – after all – this makes him more well-known to others

– unconscientious != doesn’t work hard. the unconscientious often have to work harder to achieve the same results as the naturally conscientious

– nice != unselfish. being nice is actually incredibly useful in getting people to do things for oneself. it just happens that selfishness tends to be correlated with lower levels of self-control and higher levels of meanness
