I answered a survey last night made by some of the Psychology upperclassmen and like all Psych surveys, it was really long. There’s this one question though that made me blog today. It goes something like:
If presented with a strong argument (that goes against my own), I easily change sides.
I Agreed, and commented on the number in the comments section found at the bottom. I wrote (something like):
Yeah, ’cause sometimes arguing further would tire me. Or going against it would only be a hassle, even though I know full well that my opinion is my opinion.
And it was true. Although it’s kind of frustrating how sometimes, the statement is just wrongwrongwrong (most especially if that statement is about me), I easily back out ’cause, hey, what’s the point? It’s not as if they care if I correct them or something.
Equally frustrating but at the same time, equally tiring. ‘Cause really, when people give opinions that they think is the key to you personality when it fact it’s the complete opposite, it’s just really, really… what’s the word? Tiring.
Tiring in a sense that you just want them to completely shut up but they can’t ’cause they think they already know you but they don’t. Tiring in a sense that you just want to completely shut them off because they don’t make sense anymore and sometimes you just want to forget things. Tiring in a sense that you just want to leave them hanging.
And let me tell you, I tried, tried to correct them but, man, are they persistent.
Thank God I didn’t join our debate society then ’cause I would’ve sucked.
