Are these things type related?
1. How one handles money. For example, I grew up in a middle class home, but barely. My dad was a teacher and my mom stayed home and it felt like there was never enough money for stuff. Thankfully my grandparents helped us out a lot. But what I'm getting at is, do you think the reason one might be careful to make sure there's enough money (not accounting for every penny, just making sure the balance is green) has more to do with one's background? Or type? Or some mix? Or common sense?
2. Being on time. I know we've discussed this before but I don't remember if there was really a consensus. But I think there's more to it than common courtesy and consideration. I guess everyone likes it when others are on time, and not consistently 10 minutes late. On the other hand, you can get used to that, if you know that's how they are. Do you expect others to be on time, or does it not really matter? I'm not even sure how much this matters to me. I'm trying to figure it out. I'm usually on time unless I really don't care, in which case I'll just show up when and if I feel like it. But I have to be in a nonchalant mood for that to happen. Normally I'm on time, to the minute. (Which is admittedly ridiculous.)
3. Expecting other people to be decisive. Do you want and expect other people to make their own decisions confidently? Does it bother you when they can't or don't, even if you can't or don't, yourself. Also, once you've made up your mind, how hard is it to change back again? Are you constantly going back and forth, or do you stick to your guns? At what point do you stop looking back and just MAKE THE DECISION. Also, do you get impatient with people for not making a decision? In small things? In big things? Then, once they do make a decision, do you expect them to follow through? Would you get irritated if they changed their mind after having declared a decision contrary to what they ended up doing?
4. Being demanding about certain things. Having some things that you just won't compromise on. Drawing a line in the sand and saying "nope, I don't want that, I won't even consider it." Is that... bitchiness or determination or rationality or.... what? And what if you're that way about some things but completely opposite about other things?
5. Does it bother you when people forgot that they told you something? Does it make you feel like they weren't paying attention to you, to the relationship? Does everyone feel irritated by that? I don't even know if I'm irritated all the time, but sometimes I am. And sometimes I'll do the same thing back (!!) to mirror them. I'll start to tell them something (at another time) and then I'll stop and say "did I tell you this already? maybe that was someone else..." almost like a subconscious way to get back at them for repeating themselves with me. That is horrible. I admit it. And this is the first time I've articulated that to anyone.
