Is there any difference between what we're calling fake and the barriers we have?

haha ok but you do have different personalities in different situations.. you have to cuz people are different..

just for example when you go on a date with a new girl you act a certain way (you probably flirt a little).. now i hope you dont act that same way around your best (guy) friend..

this is all that i am saying about different personalities.. it doesn't mean you are fake........

depending on the situation, people do change. as long as that change does not involve some sort of conformity or sacrifice in morals/beliefs then i dont think they are being fake. its when you adapt to the situation in order to make yourself seem a certain way that you are being fake. trouble is, people adapt this way without even realizing they are doing it. im as guilty as anyone else, but i try my damndest.

yes i see what you'r saying this is why it's hard to tell when a person "is for real".. im not saying that people don't act fake cuz they do and im not saying it is right..

but truth will come with time.. who knows maybe they will eventually become what they've been faking.. either way it turns to truth

Become what they're faking, oh thats a good one. I should start molding people.

I see what you saying thou. We can adapt other ways of thinking or being without fooling ourselves. Simply an exploration of self really and as long as your not lying to yourself about it its seems like a healthy thing. If I was to dye my hair blue others might think I was trying to show or prove something. In the words of one of the great thinkers on here "fuck them".

i dont think there is such a thing as "fake" action, as you put it. all situtations and circustances one encounters in life require, in one fashion or another, a responce. and the responce one gives is based upon what they want to achieve through that situation/circustance/encounter. and thats not fake thats as real as it gets.

I once read that the human soul is composed of thousands of little "I"s that churn about and battle to be at the forefront of one's psuedo-consciousness. Some of these "I"s have more in common with or are somehow connected with others to form large groups, although oftentimes these "I"s may be "attached" to more than one group. Moreover, these various groups may ally to form varying personalities that are brought forth by internal (thoughts and emotions) or external stimuli (sensations). For instance, let's say a person has decided to quit smoking and he or she has all sorts of motives and reasonings for quiting and the thought of smoking seems totally out of the question, but when the cravings start kicking in these certain little "I"s that want to smoke start working on the consciousness with all sorts of little validations as to why smoking isn't so bad and how silly it is not to smoke. "I"s that want to smoke start gathering together to overcome the "quit-smoking" "I"s until the idea of quiting seems no longer seems to be what that person wanted at all. And then they smoke. It's not until after they have smoked again that the "not-smoking" "I"s begin to return to generate feelings of guilt. In a sense we have a very weak will under these circumstances. Personalities may also pop up in different envornments and around different people. The only thing any of us can do is recognize them when they appear and watch for those instances when we alter our belief systems to conform to these sometimes contradictory personalities. In other words, study ourselves, what we believe in and why, and try to maintain these beliefs until new perspectives, facts and knowledge alter them, not circumstances. Oh, well, I guess where all a little fake in some sense or another, but we can create a "belief-system" or "center of gravity" that can underly all our personalities. All this is just a theory of psychology I once read long ago.

Kinda like how we change our clothes for different occasions, like you don't wear a wedding gown just to go out for lunch--we have different clothes for different occasions, but we're still the same person underneath.
