    Default An observation...

    Okay, I've noticed something about almost ALL ...if not ALL Gammas that I know, have a receeding hairline. Anyone else notice this?
    Yesterday I knew nothing, today I know that.

    Hmm nope. I can think only one gamma that I know of, that has receding hairline. Among the people I know of, it's maybe most common among deltas or betas.

    I doubt this is type related Except that washing your hair often can increase balding, and some types might wash their hair more often than other types.

    I have enough hair on my head for 2 people haha.

    Board members didn't cross my mind Although I don't remember that detailed what people here look like. I probably would remember more gammas that are balding, if I really start to think about it. But then again I probably at the same time, remember people of other quadras too.

    Default Gamma with Receding hairline

    It's an either/or thing. Either you have a receding hairline, or you don't. Non-Gamma's have the same thing. It's genetics, which aren't always parsed with personality, but when it's a 1 of 2 chance that something will be a certain way, it looks like a pattern, to someone. Not to me though. :roll eyes:

    I am ILI and I have lots of hair. My husband is SEE and he's had a receding hairline since before I met him (he was 25 when I first saw him.) For 16 years he's been losing more and more hair in my presence, and the only hair I lose grows back (just as usual, like every other person that has a full head of hair.)

    So then, in my household, 1 Gamma with receding hairline (SEE); 1 Gamma with full head of hair (ILI): Nothing but male pattern baldness (from his mother's side of the family.)

    But, oh how I dislike paragraphs, or whatever, that start with "But" ... I never said anything about "progression" of how fast or slow male pattern baldness is for everyone that has it, and I also didn't differentiate that there are other sorts of baldness and that progression is at different levels ... I totally only spoke of MY household, and the basic-ness of "either/or" (that MY hubby was losing it before I met him and ever since) and I didn't speak to the "when and how" but that it's either/or at any given moment, per se for anyone, not caring to delve into the complexities of "levels" when it's a known thing that most everything comes in different flavors, levels, layers, what ever one wishes to call it.

    Exactly. Whatever that means. So anyway then, I wasn't talking about the complexeties, and you made it seem as if I was deleting something out of existence with your "But" reply ... when I was just saying, a Gamma is either/or and that I am Gamma and so is my husband, and mentioning that he's got what's considered "male pattern baldness" (FWIW) and I have a full head of hair. It was a Gamma comparison. Simplicity. Either/Or.

    Which is precisely why it is very bad to start a sentence with BUT. I'm just wearing my critique-ILI-ing hat. I do not need a "definition" of "But" when used at the beginning of a sentence.

    All I meant was, "whatever".

    By the way, are you questioning your own interpretation? Or what?

    I really wish I could grow my hair long, but it doesn't really grow long, it just gets thick on top. Which is annoying. I'd love to see how I'd look with an 80s rocker style haircut. But instead it would just get increasingly thick, whilst taking perhaps a year or more to grow any reasonable length. And I fear making it grow much longer lest I be judged by those around me. LEST I BE JUDGED GDI!!!

    If I grew my hair long I would look exactly like my mom when she was eight.

    Default lot of hair

    I have long hair. It's "thick" but really just a lot of hair, not thick hair. It's curly and it's "fine" and I don't shampoo it either.

    I get more negative attention than compliments about my long hair. But then again most compliments I get are about my hair. But that's not the reason why I have long hair, I don't care at all what people think about how I look.

    So go ahead and try, if you want to. You can always cut it off. I can't cut mine, even if I wanted to. Because then I would let the bastards win haha

    btw. I grew mine from being completely bald, and it never has been cut after that.

    Well, it's more the fact it would take a year or more for my hair to actually grow any reasonable length, which is what would bug me. Ever since the influence of a couple of Gamma SFs (an SEE and an ESI respectively) that I work with I've been a lot more aware of my appearance. Not necessarily any good at dealing with it, but more aware of it. I dunno. I had a dream not too long ago that I'd suddenly realised that my hair was down to my shoulders and I thought "Ooh, I can style it long now". Probably influenced by the fact I haven't had it cut since I got back into this shitty little country. I really need to get into the programming industry somehow. And somehow move to America at the same time. Somehow somehow dilly dilly somehow.

    Yeah...everyone I've spoken to about it (well, all the females anyway. I think my Dad's the only male I've mentioned it to. More to do with the ratio of women to men in my life than any particular decision to talk to women about it more) thinks I'm better with it shorter. I dunno, I'm just bored with styling it the same way all the time, but I don't know what else I can do with it. Stupid hair, I wish I could just magically make it one way, try it out, make it another way, try it out. Or I could just tear it all out, but I'd imagine that would hurt. And me no like pain.

    EDIT: Posts like this make me realise how much I need a Gamma SF by my side more often. Well, a Gamma SF that isn't my mother anyway. Long story.

    sorry if i'm jumping in here, not knowing my type. but, i have a lot of hair too. and so does my hubby, both of us on the wavy side. i have been cutting his and my boys hair for years now. it makes it very easy that way. sometimes one of the boys has wanted a bit of different look and i'm fine with giving it to them but my hubby is more conservative than i in that way. buzzcuts he says.

    When people say they would do something harmful to themselves if XYZ happened, my response is why harm themselves, when they can harm those responsible instead?
