Some People Are Never Satisfied

Posted in life, point of view with tags , , , , on May 2, 2009 by MidnightSun

How is that no matter what you do for someone, how you do it, and how often you do it, sometimes they don’t thank you they say “It’s not right” or “It’s not the way I would have done it.” They find fault in what you have done, not the fact that you did it because you love or care about that person. Some people are never satisfied.

Take the time to say thank you to people who do nice things for you. Never take for granted of what they do for you because you never know when you’ll see them again or hear from them.

Are We Defined By Our Qualities?

We are all human and we have been born with certain qualities and traits that we develop, whether at a young age or when we are an adult. We can be defined by physical traits as well as personal traits.

There’s something called the “halo effect” and the “horn effect”. The halo effect an extension of an overall impression of a person (or one particular outstanding trait) to influence the total judgment of that person. The effect is to evaluate an individual high on many traits because of a belief that the individual is high on one trait.

The opposite of halo effect is the horn effect. The horn effect whereby a person evaluates another as low on many traits because of a belief that the individual is low on one trait which is assumed to be critical.

Let’s say a person who is physically strong and that is a good trait and there for people assume that you must have other good traits as well. In the reverse, if you aren’t strong as other people, then they will assume that you aren’t good at anything else whether intellectually or work related.

This is how some people think and you can’t judge people based on their qualities and assume that this is how they work or act all the time.

The definition of halo and horn effect were taken from http://www.envisionsoftware.com/articles/Halo_Effect.html

Fake People

Yes, we have all dealt with them. In families, friendships, relationships, the people you work with, people online, etc. For example when you are introduced into a new family and people want to know everything about you and then you have some people that pretend to be nice to you and pretend to get along with you and then as soon as you leave the room, something is said about you and rumors get started and then the entire family knows something about you that isn’t the truth. People that have to pretend to like you or pretend to be your friend aren’t people that you need in your life. You also have some people, when you are having a conversation with someone about something you did or your relationship, they have done the same thing but only different or better than you. They have to insert some kind of opinion to get their 2 cents in just to feel like they are included. I can’t stand fake people, especially with someone who wants to write for you, then decides they don’t want you to write for them, then it turns out they like your writing and now want you to write for them. Oh no, you had your chance! How do you feel about fake people?
