People are complicated. Emotional. Contradictory.
Each human contains many personas: A unique mix of traits, modes, and qualities - all representing different facets of ourselves.
Maybe a person is just an array of these characters, sitting on a "committee", inhabiting one shared physical body.
Here are some that I identify with:
- The athlete
- The child
- The artist
- The critic
- The dreamer etc.
A friend tells me :
My schools of thought would call them 'self-states'... We have these different self-states that are brought out in different environments. Our self is contextual to our environment."
Sometimes they balance out.
Other times, they don't.
Which ones do you identify with?
