Describe My Character - Asking A Youth


I challenge you folks to do this: ask a 20-something in your family (or someone youthful who knows you well) to describe your character in one or two words.

I lust learned that I am "optimistically pragmatic". I didn't expect that, but I'll take it.

I get feedback. Today on leaving the restaurant, the waitress pointed at the tip. I said nope, no mistake.

Winter are hard on everybody.

Or you were born with a desire to do something much more than average. And expect others to to have similar views.

Comes naturally for for me, starting to accept it's a super power.

No 20+ year old knows words like that in this day and age, just me being pessimistic and pragmatic who ever you asked lied about their age
