Today I ChangeIve always been rather sarcastic, at a constant level.
I have always been blunt and strait to the point, and staying with my character, I stay lively and funny, but get serious as required.
I am in psychology 101 in college, and while the things I learned there I have learned before so far, (took psychology in high school too) I got to thinking...
The APA writing handbook had a thing on writing bias, once again stuff I already knew beforehand...but never acted on or thought about.
all people are biased, not everyone intentionally shows their bias, and sometimes shown bias isnt the writer being biased, but the reader seeing words that they believe are biased oppinions of the writer, this second thing happens to me often, I type something out, and other people take it the wrong way. If you read one of my last comments on someone posting about suicide (A VERY touchy subject, as I am sure everyone here is aware of), I do not believe I came off as I intended, and obviously a few people jumped on me telling me I was evil hateful (and one person said something about me being the kind of person to "blame obese people for all the problems" in his exact words, even though I said nothing about obese people, in fact my last girlfriend was obese, and my best friend is obese...so I have no problem with obese people whatsoever... but here is the post if you wish to see EP Link )
So for the rest of this week and next I am going to try to talk and type differently, see if it affects my personality, I expect that after only a week and a half that very little will come of it, however after a long term usage it should cause me to naturally change into a less bias sounding person. I will first examine the week and a half and judge my next action from there. If I succesfuly sound unbiased, than I may attempt prolonged usage of this idea, unless the unbiased actions have no effect on others, and I still find people hate me for speaking reality's tongue. If anybody would like to stalk my postings and possibly help correct any of my future biased words (not biased opinions, my opinions wont be changed just how I portray my wordings.(well I should say my opinions wont be changed without good cause and reason)) I would be eternally greatful.
Thank you for reading this.
