    In the billions of people on earth, do you care about your Individual Identity? Why?

    We may not have that much potential in our intelligence to understand the bigger nature of human identity, Working for humanity or working for individuality.

    i would hope everyone does. i'd hate to think that each of us aren't individuals in many ways regardless of the population.

    I believe there is a self-worth, self-esteem issue associated with individual identity.  Those who care about who they are and how they are perceived by others tend to stay within the boundaries of common courtesy and respect for others.  That is important in a civilized world.  If our individual presence on this earth means nothing then we are admitting that the suicide bombers are right; that terrorists who place no value on human life are right.  I think humanity exist as a species for reasons unknown to us. Maybe to do better and make the world a better place or maybe just an a social experiment in behavior.  It is not for us to decide. WB

    honestly NO In the end it isnt going to matter whether or not we stuck out as individuals for what we have done to do so. I think it matters how you improve others lives as well as your own. Having a positive influence on someone else regardless if you stuck out of the crowd or not. I thnk working for individuality is selfish if your doing it in a way that has a negative impact on someone elses life

    I definitely care about individuality! Our Creator does, and a lack of identity can lead to slavery. Think about it.

    Working for humanity is always important, and if everybody cared greatly for others the world would obviously be a better place.
    But, I do care about my individual identity - i want to be remembered, loved and not just another number.

    I heard this somewhere once and always remembered it: 'to the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world'.
    So really, your individual identity is noticed by those closest to you, and I suppose that is all that should matter.

    Of course, I do.

    If a person were to forget about their identity than what pray tell would be the difference between us and a flock of mindless sheep?

    Yes, I do.

    In the morning mirror, it is my face that I am washing.  At the end of the day, taking off the daily 'armor', it is my face , alone, that is revealed.

    No one else looks like me in my reflection.

    I am the company that I keep 24/7 , from my birth to my death.  There is NO escape, no reprieve from my own self.

    This is the truth of every person.

    Yes, I do care about my individuality. I do care that what ever I am doing, is leaving a mark.
    Working for humanity doesn't mean that you can't have a name for yourself. Does that mean that social workers do not have any individuality? They do have it.
    I believe that we can take care of humanity while creating our individuality.
