Are you a selfish poster?
    #4488697 - 08/03/05 07:42 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Are you someone who just reads your own threads? Are you only interested in your posts and the responses to your posts? Do you actually take much of an interest in what other people say?

I don't think I'm a selfish poster. I post about things that I know something about, or that interest me,,,,I don't reply just for the sake of seeing myself type.

I don't think I'm a selfish poster, I enjoy seeing what others have to say.

I don't come to the Shroomery for MY threads, I come here for the people.  However, I also like to share my own thoughts and experiences on shit.  Some might say this makes me a selfish poster.  For some reason, I can't say I feel too bad about it.  :shrug:

I would much rather read what other people have to say, then myself.

I'm self obsessed. guilty as charged... but it sure makes for quality reading hey? although, if it were entirely true, how did I end up in this thread? I guess the guilt beacon caught my eye in the topic. I am learning to post something and let it go. Its just so cool though to post something and see what effect it has.

I like what you say Todcasil. Its celebrating ourselves and its celebrating our connection. And just like EllemyshShade, I don't feel too bad about it either. I think DReamer987 and me are on the same wavelength. I think I share a similar opinion to Ifallapart. Great honest topic RandalFlagg :laugh:

I don't constantly check my own threads, but I like to see replies to queries I may have.

I respond to all posts equally, yet no one seems to do the same. I rarely start threads anymore due to it. Guess I'm not popular enuff :wink:

If that was true, I wouldn't be responding to this thread right now.

Though I do usually check my threads if I've created any recently before browsing the rest of the forums.

I don't think so. I'm always interested in the different viewpoints and takes other people have on things, regardless of whether or or not I actually participate.....

Sometimes. :confused:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

To some degree, selfishness is healthy.

I say, "If keepin your boat afloat is selfish, then yeah. sure i'm selfish... but i'm not evil, need a lift?"

(I don't really know what that has to do with posting but...)

Yeah, me too.

Although I wonder how anybody who ate his own shit could be a narcissist.
