how does one differentiate needless self-consciousness and rationally caring about one's reputation?

on one hand, you "shouldn't" care what others think. be free!

on the other hand, especially in a tightly-knit social environment, your reputation does effect your career, romantic, and other prospects, and to neglect this completely can be severely limiting yourself.

so, do you just judge each scenario independently? what if you don't have time to make a calculated decision each time and need some heuristic (mental shortcut)? what would that be?

Smoke a bunch of weed. Weed always seems to give me a bird's eye point of view. I smoke sometimes and think, "wow, I was an asshole last night to my friends".

just don't care, let it be, people will think whatever they want to so why should you let if effect you?

Well obviously you need to make some choices. What is more important to you, coming off as a free spirit or being able to eat?

well, it's more about being a free spirit or being able to eat. in this case, the answer is clear. i'm thinking about how to think about it when that line is fuzzy.
