    Do you take yourself seriously?


    Why or why not?


    Do you think society/people in general take themselves too seriously?

    Look in my eyes, what do you see?
    the Cult of Personality
    I know your anger, I know your dreams
    I've been everything you wanna be ohhh…
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    Like Mussolini and Kennedy
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    the Cult of Personality
    the Cult of Personality

    Neon lights, Nobel Prize
    When a mirror speaks, the reflection lies
    You won't have to follow me
    Only you can set me free

    I sell the things you need to be
    I'm the smiling face of your T.V. ohh…
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    I exploit you; still you love me
    I tell you one and one makes three ohh…
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi ohh…

    You gave me fortune, you gave me fame
    You gave me power in your God's name
    I'm every person you need to be ohh…

    Yes I take myself very seriously. Far too seriously to be honest. A lot of my friends will tell me to stop taking myself so seriously and just hang loose once and a while and let things just relax and let go. Tis very hard for me to do though. I pretty much have two modes: full and nothing. It's pretty hard to find that middle ground. I can with practice but I often need an external party to inform me to do so.

    I am often like this too. Although really, I probably appear to be more serious I am, at least in my head. I know that a lot of my peers at school view me as the very serious quiet one. But within my close circle of friends, they know me as the one with a somewhat offbeat sense of of humor. I think I've learned to take life fairly light heartedly after being depressed a few years ago, and to focus my seriousness when/where it best serves me.

    Yes, because I enjoy life more that way. If I don't take myself seriously, that usually means I've given up or I don't care, depending on the situation. Though I guess I'd have to clarify that I think I can be funny or light-hearted and still be taking myself very seriously.


    Nope. I think there's too many on both sides to say that people in general should either take themselves more seriously or less seriously. I'd say it's more of an individual thing.

    This question is somewhat vague, or I'm interpreting some meaning which isn't really there.

    I am a serious person. I don't take myself seriously.

    Hmmmm, I guess I don't really see the difference here either. Though when I think about "taking myself seriously" I'm usually focusing on whether I care about what I do or say. That said, I can't really say I've been serious without taking myself seriously, or vice versa.

    ETA: I should add that somehow I assumed you saw them as the same, when really you said no such thing. Oh well.

    If I tried, I'd end up walking into a bookcase by mistake, destroying any illusion of solemnity. :m054:

    I'm serious about my opinions though.

    Do you take yourself seriously?
    - Yes and no. I used to take myself quite seriously, but then realized it wasn't necessary. OTOH, i am a serious person which i'm happy with.

    Why or why not?
    - Probably cuz i always believed that life was harder than it had to be.

    Do you think society/people in general take themselves too seriously?
    - No, i'd say the opposite. Sometimes we take things too lightly.
