Do you hate men or something?

Most people seek acknowledgement of some kind. Awards are acknowledgement. Good grades are an acknowledgement of hard work or intelligence. Someone telling you "good job" is an acknowledgement of a job well done... or sarcasm. Do people get dressed up and go out to have someone tell them that they look like garbage? No... they want someone to acknowledge that they look good. There are many different ways to be acknowledged and many different reasons for the acknowledgements.

This thread... you want people to acknowledge your view and you hope that it has some impact on people reading it.



1) no, I don't actually hate anyone. Although there are things that people do that irritate me at times.

2) Your comments about the shorter term ways that people look for acknowledgment are a good point. I have edited the original post to try to be more clear as well.

3) There is a part of my mind that is looking for that result, but I am also interested in what others will bring to the conversation. It would be arrogant of me to think that my current view is complete, or even accurate in it's entirety. Through communication people can share their views, and have better opportunities to broaden their horizons if they choose.

I think everyone wants acknowledgement, albeit in smaller ways than on a global scale. For example, if you spend all day cleaning the kitchen, you'd like whoever you live with to acknowledge that you did that. I don't know if men are any more needy in this area Han women are; I've met people of both genders who constantly need to be praised and get angry if they're not.

i think most humans like to be acknowledged...

if you do a good job, you expect to be promoted etc.

i dont really seek it, but it's more of an expectation. and well even when people just say, "Good job"... it can make a huge difference in my emotional state. it doesn't have to be monetary.

What I would say is this, Males would want to achive something grande finale while females would really like to pass with good grades but not much beyond that point.
Like in science areas where they want to achive history like alot others but I also think why females don't is mostly because of feelings and body changes and are going more over as a mother.

I could say hashtag not all men, but typically people want to be acknowledged for a major contribution towards peoples everyday life, even if they end up not being a good decision or end up being a crappy contribution.
Men, of course, have far greater egos, and want to be those who stand on the shoulders of others and achieve fame.
Basically think of the Futurama episode where Pharaoh Bender made the statue above the atmosphere. "Remember me", and that's all some people want.
Just from the foreshadowing, the doctors from both worlds are still playing into the timekeepers hands and blindly making mistakes. Of course most researchers would have the common sense to take a look at how their action might adversely affect the future, they're using the typical "dumb scientist" trope that is so popular among movies and TV shows.
