Sitting on the fence?

February 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

During Sept 2010 I did a post in Afrikaans on the cost of being balanced.

People o so easily attach a label to a person because of their own judgmental attitude.

Being balanced and taking all facts into consideration, instead of being blindly loyal, causes others to label you as sitting on the fence.

Has it happened to you?

Are you being ostracized, ignored, attacked because of your balanced stance?

Surely not a desirable position to be in.

  1. What’s up i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anyplace, when i read this article i thought i could also make comment due to this good article.

    • Welcome.
      Due to my attitude of not being blindly loyal to any group (or person), but always considering all (available) facts, I have not built a support group.
      Result= I am a loner (without feeling lonely) and on occasion feel the frustration of not having support.

  2. The personality factor definitely plays a big role in having (or not having) a support group.

    Due to the characteristics of each person’s particular personality as is shown i.a. by the MBTI, Socionics, Disk, etc., we all have different ways of approaching life and the different aspects thereof (judgmental vs openness, thinking vs feeling, intuition vs sensing, etc), which results in, for example superficial vs deeper contact, judgment vs openness. Extroverts seek expansive contact with others, which introverts dislike. Extroverts seek superficial contact which results in rituals and games (I suppose they also on occasion feel the lack of support).

    My initial statement on the role of personality factors is thus correct in the way different personalities approach problems and their reactions thereto. But is it also true regarding having or not having a support group?

    Coping seems to be a universal problem.
