Ever find that the presence of certain people in class helps you to perform better?

#1
Because in a general sense I am most in a languid sense of stupor, resigned to wishing away in a corner, but the right mix of eyes and ears and face sends me to a freny working to impress (is it impress?) or maintain my sleeping ego that I euthanized because it was too small a long time ago anyway.

Or maybe this is just another play on the do-as-if-you-are-being-watched adage.

You want to impress people, yes. Why? Do you perceive them to be of a higher social status and you want their approval? Why?

It is to impress. But I don't really get that, I mean, I'll work better if I can chat a little bit, but other than that, no.

maybe it's because I value intelligence as a positive trait and want to give off the impression that I too possess it?


/insecurity, huh?

That means high intelligence = high social status in your eyes. You wish to validate yourself by climbing the social ranks.

Everyone does it, don't worry.

I'm insecure, but don't tell anyone.


Oh sh*t.

Never mind.

I don't think it has to do with 'social status' per se, it's more of a personal thing, a feeling within, but I see where you're getting at.

im the same.

however i never work to impress, i work to prove certain people wrong.

i always kept my head down at school, usually cos i was stoned, certain people stereotyped me as being a stoner-moron, so in the presence of said people i would work hard to prove that i wasnt retarded.

everone hates getting outsmarted by a stoner, and i like pissing people off!!
