OMFG! I’m so sorry it’s taken me forever to post something! It’s my Spring Break and I'm living it up! We have an old friend that is visiting from Texas who is super fucking cool and really cute... but he has a boyfriend. Also I think vodka may have opened us up well enough to salvage our group from kicking someone out... I am also in contact with my best friend from elementary school that I haven't talked to in years and years... it’s really cool.
So I have decided to stop bitching about my friends... I do it too much and I know it isn’t very interesting. I do have some love interests and issues, but those can wait. For the next post or two I’m just gonna be sharing my philosophical nonsense.
Today I’ll talk about '___ism's. The way I think about it is that there are two scales that people can call on that are independent from each other, but often times coincide.
World Perspective: Optimist <<>> Objectivist <<>> Pessimist
Operating Style: Idealist <<>> Pragmatist <<>> Realist
People fall on both of these scales and usually they line up like I have written them.
To clarify; here is how I use all of these terms in my model
-An Optimist is somebody who tends to feel hopeful and positive about future outcomes.
-An Objectivist is someone who thinks that moral truths or external objects exist independently of the individual mind or perception.
-A Pessimist is somebody who always expects the worst to happen.
-A Realist is somebody who only considers things as they are or appear to be, and avoids ideals and abstractions.
-A Pragmatist is someone who looks for compromise and wants to make everyone as happy as possible.
-An Idealist is someone who looks for and expects the best things to happen for everyone, no questions asked.
I am mostly a Pessimistic-Realist... For me I like pessimism because you aren’t disappointed when things go badly and are extra happy when good things happen. As far as my realism, I don’t see any other way to operate. Yes, my pessimism interferes a bit with seeing everything, but over all I have trained myself to make quick and logical decisions with a pretty good success rate based on looking at things realistically.
By nature I dislike Idealists because they miss major points that hinder what they want to happen from taking shape. They waste time and energy on tasks that can’t be accomplished. Pragmatists just make idealistic ideas seem realistic, but usually change little or nothing, unless they are very good at what they do.
Optimists are let down to easily and make themselves vulnerable to disappointment. Objectivists, however are able to identify all points and make fair judgments, which is incredibly rare and useful.
Of course this is just how I view all of these things. I believe my model works, but it is open to interpretation. I hope in interested you.
