    Do you have any personality contradictions which you notice in yourself or anyone else?

    That's a funny concept. I could understand internal conflicts, but contradictions sounds a little strange. Care to elaborate?

    All I'm getting right now is hypocritical behavior, and that's pretty common.

    I often feel like a walking contradiction, but I feel like this is part of human nature.
    Hypocrisy aside, I believe it comes down to variants in our behavior when confronted with different scenarios that reveal different facets of our personalities.

    Hmm, interesting. In other words, we are considering apparent contradictions due to, say, context.

    I'm an angel, I'm a devil
    I am sometimes in between
    I'm bad as it can get
    And good as it can be
    Sometimes I'm a million colors
    Sometimes I'm black and white
    I am all extremes
    Try to figure me out, you never can
    There's so many things I am

    I am special
    I am beautiful
    I am wonderful
    And powerful
    Unstoppable
    Sometimes I'm miserable
    Sometimes I'm pitiful
    But that's so typical of all the things I am

    I'm someone filled with self-belief
    I'm haunted by self-doubt
    I've got all the answers
    I've got nothing figured out
    I like to be by myself
    I hate to be alone
    I'm up and I am down
    But that's part of the thrill
    Part of the plan
    Part of all of the things I am

    I am special
    I am beautiful
    I am wonderful
    And powerful
    Unstoppable
    Sometimes I'm miserable
    Sometimes I'm pitiful
    But that's so typical of all the things I am

    I'm a million contradictions
    Sometimes I make no sense
    Sometimes I'm perfect
    Sometimes I'm a mess
    Sometimes I'm not sure who I am

    But, I am special
    I am beautiful
    I am wonderful
    And powerful
    Unstoppable
    Sometimes I'm miserable
    Sometimes I'm pitiful
    But that's so typical of all the things I am

    I am special
    I am beautiful
    I am wonderful
    And powerful
    Unstoppable
    Sometimes I'm miserable
    Sometimes I'm pitiful
    But that's so typical of all the things I am

    Of all the things I am

    Sometimes I'm miserable
    Sometimes I'm pitiful
    But that's so typical of all the things I am

    Of all the things I am

    Type 6 here. >_>;

    contradiction and hypocrisy and ambivalence and overlapping arguments and actions is something I encountered on daily basis.

    What if the other side's true? And the other side's true, in fact. But what about this side? It's also true! Huh?
