hello-goodbye

Post by Nisus » Mon May 18, 2009 12:21 am

Ok, folks, that's that.

Nisus is going away.

Yes, that's that: you can be glad now, because the "pessimistic", "sexist" and "retarded" troll is going away, and he doesn't know if life will let him come back.

Why am I going? None of your business, but don't think I'm 'giving up' anything. I'm just too tired and too depressed to be participating here during these days. Maybe one day I'll come back, who knows? But I wouldn't count on this if I were you...

I'll leave you in the sweet company of Really Unoriginal. That is, you won't have any reason to complain. He's clever, humble and bright. His clear, readable and brilliant style, together with his disposition to explain himself and help other understand themselves make him one of the most admirable anonymous geniuses of the web. If you ever have any doubt about your life or everything else in this world, go and ask Really Unoriginal, he'll be ever ready to help you and enlighten your life.

But please, don't forget to be careful with him these days. If you haven't yet noticed, he's not that...well nowadays.

Ok, so that's that for a while.

"Cheers" for you all, and don't forget to "enjoy" your life and "be happy". After all, life goes on, in all its miserability...

Too many bulls?

It seemed that way to me but I am only new here.

That's a pity because you are slightly more acceptable than Satyr, RU, Jean, Straw Dog and others like him. I had hoped you would reply to the following question intended for the Pornography Addiction thread: but I'll post it here and there in the hope you'll find a moment to spare before you depart for good.

A question for Nisus: I'd be interested to know how old you were when first exposed to hardcore porn? I ask this question because I'm wondering if it may have shaped your current worldview? In my opinion (no doubt you will correct me if I'm mistaken), it's potentially very destructive indeed for a child or young teenager to be exposed to hardcore pornography. It can have a negative infuence over the way they view women and their own sexuality. I understand that it's now pretty easy for minors to obtain such material over the Intenet. I doubt that all parents are sufficiently vigilant.

If you can muster the enthusiasm to reply, perhaps it's best to do so in the appropriate thread?

Otherwise, hwyl. That's au revoir in Welsh.

"Wonder puts man at the mercy of things[/u]. In the first place he wonders about things, not himself. Wonder gives things their meaning. Wonder shows them to be significant. It is a step nearer the realization that things have an infinite meaning and that this meaning is attributable to the things themselves and not to man and his interests. It can free him from a tenacious self-righteousness and give his existence a new dimension." Verhoeven, Cornelis The Philosophy of Wonder, p. 30

Comments anyone?

Characteristics of Self-Actualized People
Common Traits of Self-Actualized Individuals
By Kendra Van Wagner, About.com
See More About:self actualizationhumanistic psychologyhierarchy of needsabraham maslow
Abraham Maslow proposed a hierarchy that represented various needs that motivate human behavior. The hierarchy is often displayed as a pyramid, with lowest levels representing basic needs and more complex needs located at the top of the pyramid.

At the peak of this hierarchy is self-actualization. The hierarchy suggests that when the other needs at the base of the pyramid have been met, the individual can then focus their attention on this pinnacle need. Self-actualization is described as "…the desire for self-fulfillment, namely, to the tendency for him to become actualized in what he is potentially."

Self-Acceptance and Democratic World View
Self-actualized people tend to accept themselves and others as they are. They tend to lack inhibition and are able to enjoy themselves and their lives free of guilt. Other people are treated the same regardless of background, current status or other socio-economic and cultural factors.

Realistic
Another major characteristic of self-actualized people is a sense of realism. Rather than being fearful of things that are different or unknown, the self-actualized individual is able to view things logically and rationally.Problem-Centered
Self-actualized individuals are often motivated by a strong sense of personal ethics and responsibility. They enjoy solving real-world problems and are often concerned with helping other people improve their own lives. Peak Experiences
Self-actualization is also characterized by having frequent peak experiences. What exactly is a peak experience? According to Maslow, these "Feelings of limitless horizons opening up to the vision, the feeling of being simultaneously more powerful and also more helpless than one ever was before, the feeling of ecstasy and wonder and awe, the loss of placement in time and space with, finally, the conviction that something extremely important and valuable had happened, so that the subject was to some extent transformed and strengthened even in his daily life by such experiences."Autonomy
The self-actualized individual does not conform to other people's ideas of happiness or contentment. This original perspective allows the individual to live in the moment and appreciate the beauty of each experience. Solitude and Privacy
Self-actualized individuals value their privacy and enjoy solitude. While they also love the company of others, taking time to themselves is essential for personal discovery and cultivating individual potential.Philosophical Sense of Humor
Self-actualized individuals generally have a thoughtful sense of humor. They are able to enjoy the humor in situations and laugh at themselves, but they do not ridicule or make fun at the expense of another person's feelings.Spontaneity
Another characteristic of self-actualized people is a tendency to be open, unconventional and spontaneous. While these people are able to follow generally accepted social expectations, they do not feel confined by these norms in their thoughts or behaviors.Enjoy the Journey
While self-actualized people have concrete goals, they do not see things as simply a means to an end. The journey toward achieving a goal is just as important and enjoyable as actually accomplishing the goal.
