Why is it that people who are nonconformists and freethinkers (like all of us here), tend to be more open, comfortable and sociable with strangers,
whereas mainstream conformists and materialistic people tend to be more cliquish and not as open with strangers?
Have any of you noticed this pattern? Is there a reason for this?
It also seems that highly materialistic people are more cliquish and less open with strangers than non-materialistic people are. Ever notice that too?
Why is that?
As far as I know, the most friendly and open people in the world that are the easiest to chat up and the least stuck up, are the following:
- Nonconformist/freethinker types
- People in poor or third world countries
- Elderly or middle age folks
- Hippies or people who call themselves "freespirits", the type that go to Rainbow Gatherings (though they tend to be flaky)
- Perpetual traveler types or nomads
- Great writers and philosophers
- Spiritually-oriented non-materialistic types
- New Age types and Paranormal/UFO enthusiasts
- Artistic people (though not all, for there are many artistic snobs too)
Why is that?
But mainstream conformists in first world countries (USA, Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, etc.) who do not fit the categories above, and are
square, live to work, materialistic and only care about their career, marriage, house and errands, (such as all my cousins) are not that open with
strangers. Nor do they seem capable of holding intelligent down to earth discussions and exchanges. It's like they are zombies run by instincts or
something. Really weird. Ever notice that?
They aren't even on a down to earth wavelength where you can have an intelligent civil conversation with them - not even an articulate conversation
like the talk shows you see on TV. And their social skills suck ass totally. It's like they are in a different zone or frequency. It's hard to
explain what I mean. Have any of you noticed what I'm talking about? It's like trying to talk to a zombie. Really weird.
Why are most or many mainstream people like this? It's really freaky and creepy. They seem so inhuman. Why do I feel this way? Am I insane or are
So why are nonconformists usually more friendly and sociable with strangers than conformists? And why are materialistic people more cliquish and less
open with strangers than non-materialistic people? Is there a logical explanation? Anyone want to take a crack at it?
Also, have you noticed that if you say something simple like "Merry Christmas" or "Happy New Year" to a mainstream conformist, they will say the
same back, but as soon as you say anything outside the box or get them to think about something, they just ignore you as if you are weird? WTF? Why is
thinking so abnormal in the mainstream conformist world? It's like the Twilight Zone, where I feel like I am the last sane person alive on the
Any of you ever feel that way?
