I've been looking through recent posts as listed on my profile, I am wondering if I have become more opinionated, and possibly arrogant and obnoxious in my opinions. I've learned from therapy to be less "passive" in how I habitually respond to things in life, and I think I seem to be more honest and direct, but do I get carried away sometimes?

I've not noticed. What posts I've read of yours seem okay to me. If you like, I'll tell you if I notice you're being arrogant?

Then maybe I should have put this in the Bitching and Moaning Thread...

Every time I see your username, I think "yahoo serious!"

*gets round to looking it up*

Ooh, AKA Xerxes and something unpronounceable in the original.

The username is based on the Legend Of The Wandering Jew as described by Sheldon Kopp in one of his books. It's an old metaphor for "exiled humanity" which I used to feel.

You don't seem arrogant to me. I've known a few arrogant people on WP in the past, and you don't come anything close.

No way! You seem really mild-mannered to me.

I don't notice any arrogance in your posts... at least from what I've read. I know some pretty arrogant WP users... you are not one of them even in the slightest :D

I always actually think of a Raptor saying AHA! 2000 times when I read your user name :oops:
