In real life are you loud about the things you believe? Or do you think it's better to just keep it to yourself?

Do you feel the need to correct people when they say things that clearly false or offensive?

I don't know what do you think.



Actually though, not in real life. I'm bad at talking so i do as little of it as possible. It might explain why i type too much.

Yeah Im wondering about like in day to day to life.

Like there's this guy in my Politics class that wants to argue every statement made. And he comes across as a complete douche. So it makes me just not want to talk about my views in public. I'm afraid I sound like that dude

I'm getting better - I had to work on scripts with my therapist, and then practice using them in therapy.

So now I can say things like "My experience has been..." or "I have thought about this, too. I think that..."

Prior to that I would always take the safe route of active listening and empathising, which made me popular as someone to talk to...but meant that people had a misinformed impression of how much I agreed with them. Which caused later awkwardness...

Just in case you were wondering: so far voicing your opinions has made you come off as a douche here. But hey, good work on the self-awareness there buddy.

All I've done is make some pretty hyperbolic statements because why not?

But thanks for the heads up man

It's like, we talk about Marx next, and inevitably the whole Capitalism Vs. Socialism thing.

And idk if I just want to just sit that out because my views are considered "radical" or whatever

And it'll just piss me the fuck off when someone starts doing the whole "Everyone who isn't rich is just lazy" thing and things might get violent and everyone will hate me.

It depends on the context, how confident I am in my opinions, and how much I care at that particular moment.

Like in my psychology class I bring up biological basis of behaviors and disorders a lot, because no one brings it up (not even the professor) and I hear stupid opinions like, "I was depressed, but then I decided it looked bad on me and I stopped" - like everyone has that experience and can just turn it off. However...

Yeah Im wondering about like in day to day to life.

Like there's this guy in my Politics class that wants to argue every statement made. And he comes across as a complete douche. So it makes me just not want to talk about my views in public. I'm afraid I sound like that dude

I also feel this way. And of course if I'm at work I won't do it (except maybe with co-workers, or if they ask for my opinion), or if it'd be "correcting" a professor I generally don't do it unless they have shown openness to that sort of thing.

So basically, if I'm confident in my opinion or know the facts for sure, and am in the right setting, I'll totally be vocal about it. Otherwise I won't be. You also have to choose your battles. There's no point in upsetting someone if it has no real consequence to what they will believe or if they are just venting etc. I also basically never tell someone they are "wrong" unless they are being racist or something like that. I just state my opinion or the facts alongside whatever they said.

i remember doing a cross-school pols/phil paper and all the pols students came to the lecture and argued all this stupid nonsensical trash, it really felt like the bar had been lowered.

i feel arrogant saying this but honestly i'm thinking of going into the honors program even just for my AA, because people are fucking stupid and i'm bored.

i was already planning on this when i transfer to FAU. the only real benefits to doing it now are a probable 3-5 credit a semester scholarship (for an honors class) and smaller classes with, ideally, more interesting discussions. i took developmental psychology in six weeks during the summer (end of week 4 is today) to challenge myself but i'm all zzzzzzzzz. i do have chemistry for the next 6 weeks which i do expect to be very challenging.

I usually pretend I agree with people just to keep the conversation going, even if I completely disagree, I try to find a gray area where we can both agree on, then move on to talk about soccer, because here people talk about soccer all the time...

I'm glad it's World Cup season, I really don't care/follow regional championships...

Female ejaculate
My girlfriend does this all the time. I try to catch it all in my mouth and swallow it. It doesn't taste like urine. I have tasted her urine and this fluid isn't urine. It is kinda tangy and slimy. She squirts several ounces sometimes. We sometimes have intercourse first. Then when I go down on her and lick her clit while inserting 3 fingers inside, she just gushes. She washes out my seman and it is followed by her fluid. I love the taste of her juices combined with my seman. I guess I just love bodily fluids. I always lick the seman off my hand after masturbating. I feel so turned on when with a woman, I will ingest anything that comes out of her or me.

i wouldn't say i'm vocal but i don't pretend to agree if i disagree
i'll test the waters sometimes to see if it's actually a disagreement worth hashing out, but in most cases the relationship is too shallow to bother and the context is too inappropriate
