Do you think that you think "out of the box", go along with everyone else, think what you were taught to think, or just rebel to be different?

  • I used to rebel just to be different, like when I was in high school. I was bi because it was "different and cool" and blah blah blah. Whatever.

    Now that I'm in the real world, I'm unapologetically myself. Yeah, I know there's nothing new under the sun, and that the people who are different are exactly the same as the other people who are different. I like to think that I think outside the box. I try to consider all options. If one aspect of my life is "mainstream", cool. If another is totally weird, cool.

  • I like to think that I think out of the box but when it comes to morals I tend to go with what I was taught.

  • I try to make up my own mind about things-I never was much of a follower- some people copied me ain high school-regarding clothes, but I never follow trends- I stick with casual, or classic looks , and i do what makes me and my family happy. I only care what my hubby and kids think. I know some peole care too much about keeping up with the neighboors, that is why they r in debt usually. We just added on to our house, there are at leat 6 sales signs on my street. I dont care what other people have - they can have the latest stuff, the nicest car- I do not try to copy them, or keep up with the Jones.

  • I have to go with rebel... when I was 14 I ranaway with my 17 year old bf simply b/c my parents said I couldn't see him (for obvious reasons) I'm not proud of it but I did it... Even now the thing that gets me going the most is someone telling me I CAN"T do something

  • This is a good question, and on a subject I was thinking about. I tend to do and think differently, which is a disadvantage when you are trying to fit in.

  • I'm a little bit of all of those all rolled into one. Depends on what we are talking anout. Morals is what I was taight and teach my son. At work I think out of the box and also rebel. I go along with family when we are planning something. etc.
