Tratti caratteriali insoliti

SECONDO LA BBC essere anticipatici sarà una carta vincente. Sono nato troppo presto.

Money quote: "The pressure to be positive has never been greater. Cultural forces have whipped up a frenzied pursuit of happiness, spawning billion-dollar book sales, a cottage industry in self-help and plastering inspirational quotes all over the internet"

Ma a quanto pare anche essere troppo collaborativi e accondiscendenti con il prossimo - direi "polite" - ha le sue discrete controindicazioni.

Money quote: "I’ve spent the better part of my life as a people-pleaser, trying to meet other people’s expectations, trying to keep everyone happy and liking me. But when we are trying to please others, we are usually out of sync with our own wants and needs. It’s not that it’s bad to be thinking of others. It’s that pleasing others is not the same as helping others."

Ma non sei antipatico, neppure indisponente, neppure... non mi viene in mente null'altro.
