Do you think most people try to impress others?

Do you find that people do certian things just to impress others? Do they live beyond their means so others don't look down on them?

  • I definitely think people are like that. I just live my life the way I want to and if someone doesn't like it, well...then it's a good thing it's MY life and not THEIRS lol

  • There are definitely people out there who judge themselves based on other people's impressions of them so yes. But I don't think EVERYONE is like this though....There are plenty of other people who have healthy egos and don't find the need to validate themselves that way.

  • I think it is a mark of immaturity - as you age, you just care less about competing with the Joneses.

  • Yup, a lot of ppl do that. Its sad bc they are too worried what others think to actually be happy. Most of the time, ppl that do everything to impress people, are miserable.

  • I do want to add though, that there are people that you should try to impress. Like your boss or someone interviewing you!! Important ppl like that.
