With what image do you self-identify the most?


I'm very interested in how people see themselves, particularly in the way they would like to be seen by the world.

Re: With what image do you self-identify the most?


I would not like to see myself, nor be seen by the world.

I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. I am the son and heir of nothing in particular.

You shut your mouth. How can you say I go about things the wrong way? I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does.

I picked complex....my core identity is defined by more than just one thing.

I can't identify myself by just one aspect as I'm a multi-faceted person.

Occupuation, hobbies, personality and as much as I hate to admit, disorder. I am way too preoccupied with SA.

I picked complex, but I guess personality and hobbies would rank the highest. I definitely do not identify myself by my occupation, and I don't like that so many people do identify others by that.

I self-identify mostly with my personal morals, ethics, beliefs, and philosophies. My interest are important too, but my interest could change and I would still be the same person. However, if I compromised my most heartfelt morals or beliefs, I would feel like I'm not being true to myself.

Same here. I'm a wife, a mother, and I'm hot as hell with a great personality. I am everything good

I voted on complex. It's a mix of my personality/religion/disorders.

Um. I don't know? There's way too much going on with all of us to just classify ourselves into these little groups based on a couple of characteristics, it makes no sense at all to me.

Of course. The question was which do you most self-identify with.
