Is it possible to wonder out loud if I am being narcissistic or is that itself narcissism?
Hello from Incepta Marketing Intelligence. We did have a bit of a chuckle at your comments.
A quick word count on your Guiding Principles page shows 35 mentions of “I”, “me”, “my”, “myself” etc… In fact, this solipsism amounts to one in every twelve words written. That’s a lot of the big “I am” to cram into a short piece of text.
Anyway – we still like some of the other things you write. Particularly the bit where you admit to having blind spots…
Keep it up!
Well, I was being provocative in that post (classified as a Rant at the time) so it’s fair enough for Andy to defend himself, albeit by changing the subject from pot to kettle.
As you might guess, I think his comment is a bit of a red herring. Sure, I use the first person a lot on this site. For the simple reason that it’s only me writing it. I suppose the alternative to saying “I think x is y” is to simply state “x is y” as fact. I’m not one for high-faluting philosophy, but I’d say the latter is more solipsistic than the former. (Solipsism =”The theory or view that the self is the only reality” – I had to look it up).
Alternatively, I could avoid saying what I think altogether.. but as Harry Hill would say, “What are the chances of that happening?” Still, perhaps my “guiding principles” are a bit waffly. I must admit I take most other people’s with a large pinch of salt.
Comments, as ever, welcome…
