I think most people are afraid of admitting it, though. But once I feel like I have a good enough 'rep' it doesn't bother me in the least, because people like for you to be human with them.
Thanks, now do I get to use the royal armor in battle against Bakarinda the Behemoth, Mistress of the Mystical Caverns?
Hahahaha, Artisan's need to establish 'reps' first huh? Cute.
Yeah, especially us Promoters.

As long as you think me reproducing is for the good of all mankind... I'm just gonna go to the local tavern afterwards to pick up some chicks.

Wow! I had never thought that would be a reaction to the Artisan chapter.. Clearly all the effects of PUM II on people cannot be imagined, by anybody.
I don't know why it would be surprising. I mean, if you write about stuff like Hemingway running with the bulls and all this other dangerous stuff, and all the military guys like fighter pilots, and famous athletes and musical composers and stuff, it's natural for someone who hasn't accomplished any of those sorts of things to read that and feel like he doesn't measure up.
Yeah, totally. I'm fairly fearless when it comes to alot of activities, but not when it comes to social pressure. I'm often found trying to safeguard myself and prefacing what I say so as to be "several leaps ahead" of the other guy just in case (and end up worrying over nothing at all). Sometimes I can be just a bit clumsy. Other times I have real trouble finding something, although I've gotten WAY better at that over the years. Sometimes I end up fazing out and not paying attention to what somebody's saying but only if it's not particularly relevant. Many of these problems used to be huge, now I've pretty much got it cleaned up.
I mean, overall I fit the description, and I'm pretty good at being a few leaps ahead of people for real, and being a good judge of people (someone complimented me on that recently) and I usually transition immediately and seamlessly from one activity to the next, although I end up screwing things up alot, especially lately.
When I first came up here, it wasn't really that I pulled myself out of a crisis with style. My Fieldmarshal dad and Supplier mom and Protector friend basically all saved my ass. But I guess that's what networking's all about, right?
I dunno. I do play things like that off pretty well, though. I tried to impress you guys by how fast "I" turned everything around by not mentioning that I had help, and I'm pretty good at doing things like that on a continual basis. So it's like a weakness complimented with a strength, there. haha.
Anyway, it's kind of relieving to be honest sometimes... now let's get back to showing off.
