This is a hard topic for me. I don’t mean to sound pretentious or superior in any way, but I don’t think I have much of an alter ego. I try to live honestly and have one real personality, but I am going to try to take a hard and honest look at myself and extrapolate what I think to be my subtle changes in personality that can count for alter egos.
First Meeting Me
When I first meet people I am usually pretty shy. I am cordial and introduce myself, but I don’t do much to lead the conversation. This is something I am trying to work on. I have often been told by people of people that people think I am quiet when they first meet me. That subsides pretty quickly after I get to know you because I can be quite the chatty Kathy.
This should not be a surprise to anyone, but I become a little more boisterous when I have had a few in me. My cheeks get red and I will be your best friend. I am so ready for anything. I haven’t made any real mistakes in this state. It’s just a fun vacation spot.
From the outside this is my most pretentious state. Everything is existential and the meaning of life is constantly questioned. Very few have had conversations with me in this form. This is one of my favorite states to be in. As Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” I couldn’t agree more. Before I go off the deep end with this I will move on.
Not that I am ever outside this state, but sometimes I get hit harder than others. Unless you are a fellow nerd, approach with caution because this can be a little overwhelming. If you were to pass by a conversation during one of these bouts you would immediately think virgin for life. Also, a very fun place to be.
These are all different parts of my personality they just become more apparent in certain environments. I am basically the Multiple Man.
