This explains a lot … not that it wasn’t a known phenomenon. Take the President of the United States, for example. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic at TEDxUniversityofNevada
Received by a friend on FB:
“You’re projecting your lack of confidence in men, in general, which translates into your own insecurities, onto a man who is innocent of whatever other disappointments other men put you through, & he has, & is doing, & will continue to do a monumental job, for America. You can’t see that, which is evidenced by his accomplishments in hundreds of ways, in less than three years, because you’re enslaved by personal bitterness, & cognitive dissonance.
“Bitterness towards men is not a solution to the issue, it is the sedative you employ to assuage the pain of your fears & insecurities, & inhibit your ability to see, accept, & ultimately love any human as they are… as being only human.”
A suggested response to this canned nonsense (from Billy Madison):
“What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone [on Facebook] is now dumber for having [read] it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
Tip o’ the hat to Christy and Brian!
Just a reminder to be cautious. If someone looks too good or talks too good a game, they may not be real. And, even if they don’t seem too good, they may not be real, either. The cons get better at their game all the time. Be skeptical. No worthwhile prospect ever asks for money, for one thing. And if they just have to have you in their life because they immediately fell in love with you … well, they didn’t, so keep your barriers up until you can carefully check them out.
