If you’re one of the few who insists on being one way,”this is who I am, take it or leave it” attitude, all the time, for every occasion- Stop it!!!
Here is the thing about multiple versions of yourself, you can’t be everything, for everyone, some situations require a different, socially acceptable for that group, different personality. Who you are at 6pm, at the bar on Friday can NOT be the same person to clock in for your shift on Monday, who you are when the people at the store over charge your payment and put you into a negative balance cannot be the same person when you go see your grandmother… see where I’m going with this?
Now I know, you don’t want to be fake or pretending to be someone you’re not just to fit in. However, there will be times where you’ll need to fit in, at least play the part enough to get where you need to go. Adaptability, being able to change to fit the situation or surrounding you are in is not only a major part of growth but a survival skill, to handle different aspects of your life.
And some of you simply need a new personality anyway- the one you have sucks and isn’t helping you anyway, why not adapt a new persona?
Yes for diverse discourse communities and various lexicon!!!!
