I was having an interesting discussion with some folks the other day, and it made me think long and hard. Basically someone told me that they thought I was a funny person, yet I've never thought of myself as particularly humorous. In the resulting conversation we all realized that, perhaps, we think lower of ourselves than we should. So now a poll to see what you think of yourself...

(More polls are welcome if you want to add them.)

Poll
1. How funny are you?
Extremely funny
Above average
Average
Below average
Not at all funny
2. How smart are you?
Extremely smart
Above average

Below average
Dumb
3. How attractive are you?

Above average

Below average
Ugly
4. How strong are you?
Extremely strong
Above average

Below average
Weak
5. How charming are you?
Extremely charming
Above average
Average
Below average
Not at all charming
6. How generous are you?
Extremely generous
Above average
Average
Below average
Miserly

Well that's a surprise! Game geeks think they're above average in smarts, but below average in looks and strength... who wouldda thunk it!?

I think some of how we perceive ourselves is based on the opinion of people we spend time with, or people whose opinion we value... this can definitely work either for better or for worse... if we spend a lot of time hearing negative things about ourselves, it's likely that we'll come to believe them and have a much lower opinion of ourselves. Whilst if we hear positive things it can really help improve our opinion of ourselves.

I'm pretty sure if I hung out with myself we'd get into a fist fight within minutes.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

We are clearly talking about some other RSP
Well, they have to be liberal platitudes if you want to be a successful thumb fisher...

You don't hang out with actual humans much, do you?

I have often pondered these things, as have many people.

In RSP I have a very high opinion of my humor. Over here I'm just average.... since I went and got myself banned, many people don't even know me in Chit Chat.

Don't lose any sleep if you don't know me. I've cut waaaaaaay back since I came back to BGG. There really is no reason to notice me in Chit Chat if you haven't yet.

Lesson learned: Hang out in RSP if you don't want your humor appreciated.
I missed you a lot here in Chit Chat. We appreciate our "members" here!

I guess BGG is much like Lake Wobegon where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.

Are the arms/legs of the guy on the right real??
