If this is you, it's time to have a rethink.

When the only person you are fooling is yourself, perhaps it's time to reassess your position, before you're left without a leg to stand on.

I understand perfectly what you're saying Ladyimp.

As you say...if they don't want to know..just walk away.

Only I was talking here about people who are actually asking for advice and guidance...whether it being on line or up close and personal.

When they keep repeating themselves over and over again being really assertive about it....
My favourite sentence is:
Who are you trying to convince...Me..or Yourself???

Then they become speechless but you can hear the little wheels in their brain going round and round....and voilà!

If they're playing the role of a fool in order to fool you then I would say they are narcissists? dunno

Harb,

Some people have no insight at all.....and have an expectation the environment around them should change in order to fit their needs and wants, instead of making the necessary changes within themselves.

Havin no savvy re making internal adjustments can make for an unpleasant journey.

I'm still working on my own....smoking drinking mumbling

Thanks for filling me in, I was catching a complex because many are sick of Africa.

It's a good blog, he speaks for many of us who know at least one person as he eloquently describes. cool

Monty Python lives on, tripping over the wrong foot. peace except in this case where he's legless according to the video posted by the OP. rolling on the floor laughing
Thank You Harb, that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me blushing hug

As funny as your clip is I find it rather sad sad
How do we detect self-deception? How do we know when we are lying to ourselves?

We will have to directly question ourselves, which means we will have to be honest.

I often ask myself who am i fooling...

Makes me think hmmm

You have me to post a blog about it, diova.
Aww, thank you, Harbal.

It's hard to imagine a world without the logic of men bouquet
Don't mention it, diova.

I'll keep an eye on you and as soon as you step out of line I'll paste it up in a blog, so you'll see it. Along with everyone else. wine
Hope you have ample time on your hands wine

The more one bleats on concerning masculinity and feminists, the more I have serious concerns about their mental health.
I think your concerns are well founded, Berry.
A quick look at the blog list informs me that a certain alpha male is "not reacting" again.
Berry...same here! thumbs up

As I've said before..and I repeat...
"Who are you trying to convince...Me ?..or Yourself?"dunno
I agree.

Any man I know never feels the need to either question what he is, a man, nor use derogatory terms for other men or women to make themselves feel better.

It's a major sign of insecurity.
I agree with your statement Molly.thumbs up
