I am a frim believer in: 'Unto thine own self, be true...' How do you feel about people that insist on pretending that they are someone, other than themselves?

Thank you for your honesty, Miles. Your entry is what this thread is all about!
Actually, it can be kinda fun to pretend to be someone else part of the time.
And it doesn't have to mean that you're not proud of yourself. I'm fine with myself and know who I am, but I also spend part of my time working at renaissance faires....
Catherine - thanks for adding the idea of pretending for fun. But, when we do that, are we really doing what Princess Prisca was talking about, "insist[ing] on" pretending. At a Renaissance Fair, are you exploring a part of who you truly are?
SidKemp, I think it's all about exploring different parts of myself, and who I might choose to become. To do that, sometimes I'll play with what it might be like to be someone else...
