    No-one has a "real" me. Identity is an illusion.

    Re: Which one is the real personality?

    Women care about perception of what others think, because it is a social currency to them. Most well adjusted men don't care because they realize their social currency relies on what they can do.

    Mr. Wombat is correct in that some perceive me a leader of men while others perceive me a geeky nerd that loves sci fi.

    It is better to be an anomaly than be defined and put into a box as a man IMO.

    Re: Which one is the real personality?

    To call oneself anything, to identify oneself with any abstract proposition, will always feel forced and contrived. After all, how can anyone be a belief—a mental abstraction? It makes no more sense than identifying myself with a tangible object—with a tree or stone.

    The sad truth is that all these efforts at “forced identification” are ultimately disingenuous—a futile attempt to define or delineate one’s sense of being. And unfortunately, that is all we shall ever have—a vague and amorphous sense of being, without any clear notion of what we are, of our inner essence. As soon as we try to go beyond this amorphous sense of existence, as soon as we try to give form and content to our self-awareness, we have nothing to fall back upon except our mental constructs—our forced assertions that we are a distinct entity which is a part of some larger social, or religious, or ideological context.

    Even if we take the opposite course and try to identify ourselves with the body, with our physical sense of reality, once again we are required to make a mental or intellectual assertion—“I am this physical body.” In other words, we are once again attempting to attach our sense of being to something apparently tangible, to something apparently definite, by a deliberate mental effort.

    Instead of engaging in these intellectual machinations, these forced attempts to establish an identity, I would rather accept myself as an unknowable entity—as a non-existent being. I would prefer to remain hidden—an enigma unto myself—than try to cast my nebulous sense of being into some physical or intellectual mold which can never contain it.

    A long time ago estrogen affected me exactly the same way. A pretty woman showing interest
    got me all twitter-pated. After numerous bad experiences with women and careful observation,
    I keep my distance, don't let them inside my personal perimeter, and stay out of their scent wake.

    When I find a woman attractive, I'm not myself anymore. Realizing my state of temporary insanity
    is the first step toward rehabilitation.

    The personality closest to real is the one looking after number one.

    Was she referring to PMS? Or something else? I was just talking to a chick who told me she "at least had two personalities". She asked me how many I had: I told her "one". She changed the subject after that.
