I was not always an asshole, I chose to be an asshole. I realized that I was constantly getting screwed. People would be my friend strategically, and then as soon as they had an opportunity to take advantage, or as soon as I had trouble, they turned on me. So I realized that I had to sour the milk. To quote Aristotle, “A man that is a friend to everyone is a friend to no one.”
I coined the phrase, “threat filter” to show how people make decisions about threats. I show up on everybody’s radar as a potential threat. Because I am ridiculously talented, insanely smart, strong, funny, creative, fast like a motherfucker. I am a renaissance man, a philosopher king. People have categories like trash cans. They don’t like people that do EVERYTHING well. You can only do one or two things well, not everything. I am not arrogant, I evaluate myself correctly. I know I do that because I have depression and depressed people are the only one’s that evaluate themselves correctly, common psychological knowledge. The normal person is over rates their ability. It is known as the dunning kruger effect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect
It isn’t like awesomeness is a finite resource and I am helping myself to too much of it. I think humility is a very good thing it is just that everyone else has me beat in the humility game because they have so much more to be humble about. (insert satanic grin) 3:})
My point is this, everybody LOVES to hate me, and they create a refractory state towards me. They inoculate themselves to me. They try to thwart me, sabotage me, they talk shit about me. But I am not the guy they have to worry about. It is the one that is concealing his thoughts, the one trying to appear to be a none threat, unintimidating, harmless. I am the obvious threat, because I could be if I wanted to. I am not intimidating you. You feel intimidated by me. And as long as you are in a refractory state towards me you are not looking for the actual threat. The one that you are never gonna see coming. So, I guess, in a way, I won another undeclared war that was waged on me without even lifting a finger. My enemies are so smart they destroy themselves.
The problem with morons is they forget to account for something in their interpreting and judging reality. Something very important. The fact that all of their calculations are made by a complete fucking idiot…..
