It seems as though this discussion may be related to others going on currently, but I don't have the capacity to read them all and analyze everything at this time. IN other words, I'm just lazy right now.
The subject is: the psychological distance of formality.
Gloves, (ties?), detached courtesy...
When I see it in myself now, I wonder if it is a sort of cloaking mechanism. In real life, people tend to not necessarily remember "me", but more so how I acted, or interacted, with them.
There are several branches from this main subject. I'm tired at the moment, so I will address just one right now. It seems as though this "aura of interaction" is something that I have gotten very good at, because thinking back to past situations, it sort of has allowed me to continue a positive interaction with others, yet without revealing much of "myself" to them -- and by this I mean without spending a great deal of (what I consider) 'real time' with them
Hmm, I am not coming across very clear at the moment, I don't think. But perhaps that will generate some discussion. (I can imagine that this may seem as if this is just me too caught up in my own subjective world at the moment). But I will get to adressing things in a more "objective" manner soon enough. More later
