Do you consider yourself to be a complex person? Do you have complex needs? Helpful Sponsor Ads! I hear "I'm a complex person" sometimes, along with "I'm really not a complex person." So what exactly does that mean? I always thought my basic interests and motivations were pretty straightforward, and once I get to know people, that's usually true about them too. It seems to me that people decide that someone else is complex when the other person is just different than them, and making them seem the same requires a complex explanation. To give an example, some people find being considerate and even tempered almost always to be strange, complex, or even not like a "real person," but that's really a pretty straightforward thing, if people would just come from a perspective different than their own. I don't know exactly where I was trying to go with this thread. Usually I try to make topics on forums more focused but I'll post this anyway.
