The measurements we use to interpret time are thought constructs, yes. But time itself is not. There were atoms, molecules, planets, stars and galaxies forming, changing, merging long before we appeared to impose an arbitrary scale for those changes.

I do get the metaphysical point you are making, by the way. We can only remember the past, and guess the future. We can't directly perceive them. Our existence at any given moment is limited to that moment, that particular 'now'. Though to me, the idea that time exists solely as a construct of the intelligence that perceives it is entirely too similar to the participatory Anthropic principle, which basically states that nothing can exist until it is observed. I find that to be a very egotistical and unlikely scientific standpoint.

How can you be sure of that? The speed of light begs to differ in a way.

Through time, I find that often, I judge myself very harshly, and assume others do to, but it often turns out that they don't. I tend to assume "everyone hates me" and am surprised to find out later it isn't true.
But that is in real life, I've noticed that on the internet, I have had people assume terrible terrible things about me.

I have confidence in my intent and inner "goodness", but no confidence at all in my ability to communicate that effectively.

I care a lot about others, whether close to me or not, and am very empathic. This sometimes causes me to feel pulled in many different directions, and end up neglecting some while so focused on another. I got boundry problems.

I'm also prone to momentary breakdowns, where I can be unecessarily emotional, if I get tired. A little time alone and I recover quickly though.

I can be overly concerned with details and subtilities, too serious, and too rational at times when I think that is necessary, which sometimes irritates people. I am rather introverted, preferring to observe and process deeply what is going on around me, to learn.

I have a love/hate relationship with language. I need to take part in reading, writing, and talking, and like to learn new languages, but at times get frustrated with the difficulties of sincere communication and need to retreat to interaction with babies, or animals, so that just body language can be exchanged.

I am not jealous or possessive, but can feel hurt easily if I really respect someone, and crawl into my shell. I take responsibility very seriously, even when there doesn't seen to be a need for it.
Mostly, I am super curious, love to explore new places, people, or ideas. I am always sort of excited by fear of unknown, and overcoming it.

I also have a huge irrational fear of losing those I love. I basically perceive that love can just come to an end at any moment, and loved ones leave.....so I am always mentally preparing for the moment that will happen and trying to appreciate the moment to the maximum, before it ends. When I look at the relationship I have with my husband of 25 years now (the longest time anyone has every been with me, including parents) it seems unfair and irrational, but each day, I still wonder, "Is it today that he will tell me he is leaving?"

I am a person who does not choose to be defined by characteristics and labels. I am also a person who believes that while nobody else should define me, there is often truth to both the positives and negatives of what people think or voice about me. I figure if they are thinking it and thinking it often then there must be some level of reality there.

I was asked once who I was and the answer that came to me without a conscious effort was...

"I'm a Scotch drinking man who likes Amaretto"

I took it as a notion that we are relatively fluid on all scales and extremes, while they can exist, are not permanent.

So who I? I'm just this guy trying to navigate my own icebergs. Some times I hit a few, most times I dodge.

I'm honest, cautious, and a bit immature.

I'm inconsistent, a pushover, and naive.

I'm an extremely patient person and I'm very strong (mentally).

I'm not assertive, I'm not loud, and I'm not a "social butterfly".
