Whilst we can all try to say "I don't care what anyone thinks of me" it's likely to be a lie - we do so! But why? Any answers?

great reply, it would be the conclusion to my own statement in a perfect world. You are one of the lucky few.
I agree with your answer. Those who treat others like fools will be the fool in the end. What goes around, comes around. What you sow you shall reap.
If it's an individual's opinion, you shouldn't give too much weight to it. After all, it's just his/her opinion. But if it is that of an organization, e.g. your hubscore... By the way, the more I do, the more my hubscore falls, LOL. It disappoints.
Excellent answer as always, Sid. Voted THIS answer as THE BEST!
UR point isn't made with ur examples. We mow to keep bugs, snakes & mice away, we cut hair, shower + cause it is health & comfort motivated.opinions do matter, it's the degree they effect us that matters-->constructive criticism-->OK-in
OK. Mow designs in ur yard; shower with Axe and get a Mohawk haircut. I've seen manicured yards with the inside of the house being a dump. Ur question implied 0 degree of effect. Not what degree of effect. Can't be both. Sorry I wasn't more specific.
My point? there R always exceptions 2 every blanket comment about others. Opinions R like rectums, everyone has one & most of them stink. We R all entitled 2 ours - I'm just saying. The ending on my other comment was: insults not so much.
I agree DWilliams. That's why I began with considering the source. You are right. Insults are useless. I never believed in motivation by demotivation. Constructive criticism only comes from one who cares. The rest are self-serving.
there is an interesting article in the science magazine that sums it all up best:
How true that is.... so honest. Great comment. This need is built into us, I believe, maybe an instinct linked to "survival of the fittest."
Right, and the next moment, you ask them why they said that, they stare blankly at you and ask, "When did I say it? Don't simply say!", LOL.
@WalterPoon: Exactly! They're so busy from one minute to the next, trying to get through their lives. It's not worth analysing too much, I say.
Seems like your first sentence and your last sentence contradict each other.
