    Doing some self reflection in the areas of my life, and asking this question to my peers and friends, so I come to you TW.

    How do you experience me? How do I come across?

    I'm searching out my pitfalls in the hopes I can make them lesser moving forward in life, so you will not hurt my feelings by being honest. Some of you I know better than others but I hope to get a good mixed bag of how I present myself, even if it is just the interwebs.

    Btw, doing this with your close friends and acquaintances can be VERY insightful. Introspection is not done often enough IMO.



    Thanks in advance!

    Concur. I lurk and laugh a lot on here so I don't have much interaction or input for you. I personally try to step back fairly regularly and look at how I view others and then project it onto myself. I find the things I dislike to downright hate about others is something that I feel the same about myself. Doing that lets you work on that part of yourself as well as free up those ideas about others.

    I don't know you too well, in fact you seem pretty cool in the threads I've lurked in, but I've been meaning to ask you where you got that sweet Stormtrooper token in your headlight?

    I really am looking for criticism, and I've been on TW long enough to know that I'll get it regardless. You guys aren't going to hurt my feelings. In order to grow you first need to find out where you are planted.

    I've been accused of being easy going before haha. It has its benefits for sure. I've learned that I'm blindly optimistic in most aspects of life, which has become a pitfall of mine. Not realizing how bad things are and giving credence to sound advice are some of the drawbacks of extreme optimism, or so it would seem.

    Ben, you seem like a real stand up guy. You may have had a lapse in judgement when you bought a second gen... Buuuuut that can be overlooked :p

    I've had an awesome time at the meets with you and you've done real great things for the Alaska section on here. :thumbsup:

    Nope, lost too many family members to drugs to try that stuff and alcohol just doesn't taste all that great to me so that's never been an issue either. Just trying to push myself as a man towards humility. A mentor told me, if you want to stay humble, ask what people think of you.

    So here I am.
