You shouldnt be fake...always be yourself. Its better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you are not!

To an extent that is true. If the “real you” is a *********, arsonist or maybe an axe murderer then I would suggest faking it. Seriously I do know one person who had a successful career by being who he is because his personality is a very conservative, by the book type who didn’t care what anybody thought about him, and he was a successful supervisor. On the flip side I have worked with people who were going to do what they were going to do no matter what anybody thought, and they were stuck on the bottom rung of the career ladder only because we were civil service and it was too hard to fire them.


exactly !

That certainly does sum it up neatly...

I totally agree with you Ashley. And quite honestly, I am quite impressed at your wisdom at your ripe old age. I hadn't even thought about this subject until I was much older. But, I think I grew up in an unpretentious time and part of the country. I think more people try to falsely impress more people today, and I think they start at a younger age. Just be yourself. The right people will like you, and you shouldn't care about the rest. Take care-
