This one is a good point, and one I had trouble with for a long time when I was younger.

From Gegogi:
"You read the audience and give them what they want. Successful human interactions require much the same sort of skills. Who you are and what you feel doesn't matter if you talk the talk and walk the walk. You learn to play the game and cop the role. Nothing wrong with that. I do it all the time on stage, in the classroom, in meetings and on the street. You are acting a role designed to draw specific reactions whether it be amorous, social or professional. Being yourself--a stinky, lazy, beer guzzling hornytoad--doesn't cut for most folks (hide it until after marriage). And, yes, these daily acting sessions are a game. It's called life. We learn when it is approproate to act funny, hostile, polite, holy, kind or loving. And we usually do these things whether we feel like it ot not. If you're better at it you get further down the road of success."
