Exactly, so why would one attempt to do so?

Someone on this forum said something about human nature and I think it applies to personality as well. I don’t remember who said it, but whoever you are I thank you because it really struck a chord.

They said, and I’m paraphrasing here, that a Satanist embraces his nature, but is not dominated by it. I think this makes sense. I would even expand on that a little and suggest that the people who are most dominated by their nature, are the ones least likely to realize that they have “a nature” to begin with.

Again, I think the same applies to personality. The most unlikable people don’t even realize they are unlikable. By knowing your self, and by being aware of your own strengths and weaknesses, you can gain the upper hand. Then it’s simply a matter of deciding which aspects of your personality are most useful depending on the situation.

As a scientist, I must say - to find out what happens.

Every day in the lab I have in mind the words "hmm, let's see..."

Through repetition of experiments, unforeseeable consequences become foreseeable and thus can often be manipulated.

I could go on and on about this, but this is way off the topic that was posted in the first place.

Well, being an alpha male can sometimes be very useful, but can also get you into a lot of trouble at times.

This approach in life seems to be very intimidating to some people, which is actually a very effective way to save energy usually spent on meaningless confrontations.

...and I just realized that this post is from September of last year.

I still stand by what I said though. \:\)

I have nothing to add to this thread, however...

I remember reading something about changing one's DNA (to achieve beneficial results) on another Forum. Though, I do not recall the specifics of that discussion, I do not think it is impossible.

More like "Good riddance."

I'm very tempted to ban posthaste the next idiot who heads straight to the Music forum and starts posting about Cradle of Filth.

Someone remembers a thread I started a while back on the Chairman of the Board! Probably not; but, I was looking for an excuse to use the dancing chili pepper one more time.
