Authenticity

This post is nothing more than blatant procrastination. I should be working on Trailer Trash, but I don’t know if I want to think that much right now. So I’ll tell you about an interesting article I read in The Week.

Not that this will come as a surprise to you- seeing as you’re fiercely independent, highly authentic individuals- but apparently “suppressing or enhancing personality traits could be counterproductive, and may even have a worrying impact on our health.” The fact is, “keeping up an act is inefficient, and not a good use of energy. And when you are not being authentic, it’s very unlikely you’re doing your best work or making the most out of your talents.”

I’m not sure about you, but it’s nice to know that I’ve been doing the right thing for the last 30 years. Though, I’m pretty sure my authenticity has caused more than a few problems during that time.

At least now I have a better argument than, “I’m allergic to cubicles.”
