These critics organize and practice in my case a sort of obsessive personality cult which philosophers should know how to question and above all, to moderate.
These days we seem more bound to our bosses than ever before. We even identify our own selves with the jobs we do: 'What do you do?' is the first question we ask each other at parties, as if a job title could express a fundamental truth about our personality.
I am such a complex person. I have so many different layers of my personality to choose from. I am super-sensitive, and I am super-strong.
I have a big personality, and I think big personality plus blond hair makes me come across as glib. With dark hair, people look at your face more. Before, it was all about the hair.
I'm, like, everybody's friend. I'm one of those dudes. I can be friends with anybody. Any race of person, any personality, I can kind of deal with them. I accept different types of people.
J. B. Smoove
