Erm, it's usually subjective based on the context. It's normal.

I love fighting but I hate hurting people. I'd say these kinda balance each other out though.

Whereby they deviate from moralities before, making them hypocrites in order to adopt a new one, ultimately deviating from that one as well. Adaptive morality isn't morality. It's hypocrisy. Remain consistent or face the unmaking of your reputation.

That is all the more I will say.


Adaptive morality isn't hypocrisy, it's learning. People are always facing new situations that their established morality (conscious or subconscious) isn't prepared to parse. Much like science, in these situations, people will either A: Fit this new experience into their current moral code and strengthen it, B: find it impossible, and develop a new moral code that is equipped to deal with it, or C: find it impossible, shrug it off, and stubbornly stick to what they've got. Scenario B makes it seem like the person in question is abandoning morality altogether, when really, they're only discarding their previous, unsatisfactory moral system, whereas scenario C has the person maintaining their moral code, despite that code being obsolete. Morality is not hard and fast: coming up with a system that will fairly and satisfactorily arbitrate every situation we encounter is next to impossible. Maintaining an inadequate moral code is lazy and arbitrary. This is why laws are constantly being put under scrutiny and frequently modified. The legal system might be inelegant, unreliable, and full of oversights and loopholes, but it's still a work in progress.

Back on the main topic, I'm like you, OP. I'm picky when it comes to making things look neat - especially when their shape is uniform and conducive to 'straightening out', but I'll nonchalantly leave my stuff all over the place and let it pile up. After something's been sitting around for a day or two, it becomes effectively invisible to me unless it gets in my way. I don't consider it a problem, per se, as long as it's my own stuff in my own space. I try to be more conscientious when it comes to shared property and communal areas, but I'm still unfortunately far from 'tidy'.

I'm also one of the 'likes to be alone, but gets lonely' people. Balancing alone time with friend time is a difficult task for me, especially with work (and even worse, commuting) significantly cutting in on my free time in general. I usually end up burning myself out being more social than I want to, because I expect to have me-time in between, then something happens that requires my attention, taking that time away.

I also come across as extremely mature for my age in some respects, and extremely immature in others. I'm not at all an angry person: if someone messes up, I'll help them make things right rather than chewing them out for it. I've been told I give great advice, and I'm well-liked and relied upon by most people that know me. At the same time, I suffer from an extreme lack of motivation and ambition, and am a chronic procrastinator. I'm the type who competently helps others solve their problems, but puts forth no effort to solve their own, expecting them to just go away if ignored.

My other main inconsistency (or rather, surface inconsistency, I guess) is that I easily and flippantly adopt whatever point of view I feel like adopting. I'll argue one side of a debate with one friend, and then argue the other side with equal fervor with another. In my case, though, it's because I have a hard time 'believing' things in the first place: I don't argue to win, I argue to learn, and opposing what the other person is saying is the best way to do that, so I almost always disagree with people (as long as they seem willing to casually debate the topic), which makes me look all manner of self-contradictory. The truth is that, more often than not, I'm not actually 'on' the side I'm supporting, because I'm not on a side at all. The one opinion I hold to is that opinions are usually unhealthy.

I have a few actually...

1: I feel like I need to clean EVERYTHING, but I tend to be so lazy that I do it only like twice a year (yeah this includes dusting usually).

2: I'm one of those people that is quiet and hard to become friends with, but once I consider you a friend I just won't shut the hell up. Or so my friends say.

3: People say I am really nice, and sometimes I feel like I am, but then I realize more than half the stuff I have done over my short life already would put me on a First Class express seat to Hell, and thats even by standards of people who don't believe in it.

4: I absolutely hate following rules. But I always seem to be making them for events/group projects/etc.

5: Dunno if this one will really count but... I love everything about technology, computers, video games, etc, but other than my typing speed I am probably one of the most technological idiots short of my Grandmother who still can't work the phone.

6: I am somewhat shy, and very quiet(until you get to know me or get me to start talking), so I like to be alone, but I can't stand not talking to someone for more than a day. Texting doesn't fix this, like I actually need HUMAN interaction outside of my parents. Luckily I learned a bar works for this.


I probably have more, but it's making me analyze myself, I hate doing that. XD

I'm a self-absorbed ego-maniac... Who cares about everyone but myself. Or so I'm told. I think it's contextual to the fact that I tell people to shit in their hat, but ultimately help out, no matter the personal loss. I am the greatest, most bestest, super awesome idiot in the world.

Before I say anything, let me just say EVERYONE needs some interaction with other people, no matter how shy you are.

I am very sensitive to conflict, but then at the same time I am very good at making people feel horrible about themselves, because people trust me enough to tell me things they wouldn't tell anyone else.

Also, on the Miggs-Bryer personality scale, I'm an INFJ ( http://www.personalitypage.com/INFJ.html ) which I totally agree with, when I first read that I was amazed to see that I was reading about me, and yet I have Asperger's Syndrome ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger_syndrome ) .

That's just like me actually. Human contact is nice in a while, but sometimes being alone is actually kind of nice.

I keep my office clean, but my room at home is a mess. then again, my cat knocks so much crap off my desk and brings all his toys into my room so it's hard >.<

I always come off as a cold person, although my looks make me look nice and approachable. I like to do nice things for people but as soon as someone acts ungrateful I give up and go back to hating the world. I volunteer, but I hate the people I'm helping because all they do is nag about what we can improve on and blah blah blah...maybe if we had more help we can work on improvements HMMMMMMM?!?!?!?!??!

I can be very serious, but then silly around certain people.
My self-confidence can severely fluctuate throughout the day.
I'm ambitious, but have lazy tendencies, at least in my own perceptions.

On the topic about morality, I think it sometimes seems as if it changes at certain points, but it doesn't really.

Take killing, for example. In wartime, soldiers kill others, but it's supposed to be all right, because it was war. Yet, many soldiers deeply regret and develop societal and mental disorders later.

But, that's my twenty-two cents.

I'm so self-conflicting, it's my nature to be self-conflicting. Which makes it not-conflicting. Well, that's my contradiction.

I didn't think being a clean freak when it comes to someone else's messes while being complete opposite when it comes to ourselves was pretty common.
I clean pretty much everything in my sight at work. I even help my friends tidy their rooms.
And my room and my car are beyond messy it's really disgusting. Once I can't stand it anymore I'll clean them up probably.

Another thing is I can be too nice to people as in being too generous and caring to the point of me being uncomfortable doing it. Because I usually don't give a damn about other people's business and problems so long it doesn't interfere with my life. But then again I want to help people when I can because when I see them smile.it makes me happy
