What Is Your Online School Personality Type?

 

 

I have some food for thought for this week, and would love to share it with you as well. As I was scrolling (aimlessly) on social media, I saw this poem shared by a friend:

If you asked me a year and a half ago if this poem speaks anything to me, I would have probably ignored it and continued living my life through rose-colored glasses. Today though, after one year and a half spent in the American culture and college environment, I find the poem disturbingly relatable to the way our generation perceives love and relationships. And here’s why.

Being immersed in the Western culture, I found myself experiencing a lot of cognitive dissonance (that is, in psychology, the confusion of a situation in which two beliefs you hold about the world clash, or a belief you have is contradicted by the world — happens oftentimes with culture shocks) regarding the way romance is perceived. Or relationships. Or not even, because here they are barely called relationships. They are called… a thing.

“I feel too much. That’s what’s going on.’ ‘Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways?’ ‘My insides don’t match up with my outsides.’ ‘Do anyone’s insides and outsides match up?’ ‘I don’t know. I’m only me.’ ‘Maybe that’s what a person’s personality is: the difference between the inside and outside.’ ‘But it’s worse for me.’ ‘I wonder if everyone thinks it’s worse for him.’ ‘Probably. But it really is worse for me.”
― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

“There’s such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I’m such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn’t be half so interesting.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“The fact is that we have no way of knowing if the person who we think we are is at the core of our being. Are you a decent girl with the potential to someday become an evil monster, or are you an evil monster that thinks it’s a decent girl?”

“Wouldn’t I know which one I was?”

“Good God, no. The lies we tell other people are nothing to the lies we tell ourselves.”
― Derek Landy, Death Bringer
