Rather common. Do you think you do this because you want to be perceived as polite by others or because you find it is a convenient way of getting what you want?
It's rather common to ask ourselves such questions. When you say you choose fake, do you think you do this because you want to be perceived as polite by others or because you find it is a convenient way of getting what you want?
Well spoken. I agree completely.

Persona means "mask" in Latin. The persona was a mask that was essentially a character, a character which could be played by many different actors, and one actor could wear many personas.
We get "personalty" and "person" from the Latin persona.
And we have action. Karma means "action", but the word action comes from act, which means to do something. One who does something is an actor.
So, we can say to experience, to live this life in this universe, we are actors playing many persons.

I see through the masks they wear and it scares the hell out of them.
