I have changed my opinion a a little after hearing the response, but I still tend to believe that we have have a subconscious way of dealing with things we are not good at. Perhaps this is just me, but I suspect it is not. For instance, I was gifted when I was little, and went to a pretty prestigious private college when I was older, I am insecure about my intelligence, and the thought of doing very poorly on an aptitude test such as the LSAT would (wrong or right) ruin me. On the other hand, I suck at finding my way from point A to Point B, I’m bad with directions, I’m not a very good driver, and I lack some common sense when performing simple to do tasks, a lot of guys can’t admit those things, but the things I am bad at don’t bother me, it’s what I am suppose to be good at that makes me nervous.
As I mentioned in another post, at 6 feet tall I use to be obsessed with the fact that I was too short. Again this could just be me, but I would guess that a doctor would diagnose many of us with a similar disease (if that’s what you want to call it)
My conclusion is that I think although people with a loud personality will speak out on forums, it is a lot of times the guys who are afraid of losing something who speak first, not always the guys who are trying to gain something, and thats one I guess could be up for discussion. That could be losing your role in the family as the smart one, or one day being told your big dick isn’t all that big.
