    Are YOU the type of person who is controversial, contentious, and take NO prisoners regarding

    issues or are YOU the type of person who goes along to get along, a peacemaker, and one who does not ruffle feathers regarding issues be those issues sociopolitical, sociocultural, or religious?

    I must admit I am a peacemaker who likes to get along, even though I make my own decisions.  When I do ask for feedback, I still have to decipher the answers so that it correlates to my reasoning because there are only so many ways of perceiving a solution.  In my business class, the text gives diagrams of ways to think in certain situations.  You have to be in that frame of reference to contend with that level of analysis.  So at different levels of perceiving and decision making and at different stages of learning, its possible to be all three.  Maybe...that's what we eventually all must go through.

    I could say I might do a little bit of each, but people many times see you from their own angle or perspective, And that also depends what you may allow some one to see. I really try not to get personal about myself in general , but to me time matters, and words should reflect goodness and peace and a purpose. Many people that have their views may see me in a different light because they live differently from my posted statements. That is all about free will. I only hope some one can use information I share that leads to an unending life and future of happiness.

    ruffle feathers


    Did I mention I RUFFLE FEATHERS?  Always speak my mind boldly but my thoughts are layered in truth and spirituality w/ a side of humor applied.  The great thing is those who experience me never forget me. The other great benefit is that I touch and care about random people in a way that amazes them. Do the right thing is my motto.

      You sound just like me thinking the same thing ,yet you said it better. But people just might learn all kinds make the world turn. And just because some one is not like you ,think like you , look like you  ,that is value in being different.

    I don't try to ruffle feathers, but I've been accused of rocking the boat.  The problem is I am passionate about my stances, but before I get to the point of sharing my opinion, I like to observe the players, research the topic, and come up with my own perspectives.

    I am a question-er and I want to know the WHY behind everything.  Why do you think that way?  Why do you believe that?  What led you to your conclusion?  And although, I want to know everyone's viewpoints and how they reached their perspectives, I staunchly believe that I've reached the RIGHT ones.

    Really, the only time I will fight/argue to the death is when it's a topic concerning one of my students.  If someone tries to violate their rights or cheat them of person-hood or tell me they are worthless or bad or prison-bound, I become Mama Bear protecting her Cubs.
