My scoring system

At the bottom of this blog post, I’ll present a rather long joke with a scoring system. That is a joke. But first, I’ll talk about my own.

I appreciate about others exceptional matters – when I see things out of order on an impressing scale.

A person can impress me with:

  • Its actions:
  • Will:
    • Some person want to do things and not always make it, but they’re close; the will is good enough;
  • Normality:
    • I study exceptionality a lot; and I got to see that most people are atypical; rarely, I’m impressed by the state of normality; an exceptional state of normality is exceptional in itself;

Now about my scoring points – a person starts with equal chances; unless we’re talking about religious persons (but only to those in which God has some special requests – a request for being better); sorry, different criteria apply for this situation for analyzing abilities; a regular person can be human and prove to be exceptional; a person who claims that he/she has faith in a God which asks for a lot of things, should be, in my opinion, more than the usual exceptional part; so, when I analyze a person who claims belongs to a deity, I’m a bit (more) critical; -10 points, if you like it, right from the start; Nicolae STEINHARDT is not an exception to this – he is just a very good orthodox, to me, so I like him; it’s despite being Orthodox, not due to; so, what seems to be the problem with Orthodox people? In my opinion, groups / gangs / communities form; I want to be part of none; I don’t want to be the Orthodox guy, taking decisions in a group of Orthodox people, thinking and acting like the Orthodox people; I like critical thinking, independent analysis, and unbiased analysis; on the other hand, I try to live by Orthodox principles; conclusion? Up until some point, treating the Orthodox community as a whole and having a independent thinking towards life are somehow incompatible;

You see above that there are a lot of unfilled spots; I only write on the blog about things you can learn from; you can learn from all the above examples something (read a book, see the trainer, meet a person); if someone helped me 5 years ago, what good is to you? And just putting things on the Net is irrelevant; it’s also very private; yes, there are people I talk about; but if you couldn’t use anything out of my feed-back, then I wouldn’t write; what use is to you that I consider someone to be normal? Is it helpful to you? Yet, to me, it is very important to see this;

What should you note? It’s enough just to have one of the above qualities (actions / will / state of normality) for someone to be in my top people list; rarely does a person hold two positions; I’m not looking for perfection, but having a quality like the above is as close as one can get to perfection as possible; also, related to this – what happens to the other people? What I see in them is not “oh, you have this and that problem”; what a regular person has is a lack of an admiration from me; this is how I see a lot of people;

As a paradox, even if I consider I have a poor memory, the top people in my life, via memories, are very important to me; so, with a poor memory, I (partially) live through memory;

What happens to the people in the list? They’re models to me and important in their specific area of accountability;
Not on the list? I try to treat people as equal as possible, not to discriminate or to favor anyone;

OK, now the joke:

For thousands of years, men have tried to understand the rules when dealing with women. Finally, this merit – demerit guide will help you to understand just how it works. Remember, in the world of romance, one single rule applies: Make the woman happy.

Do something she likes, and you get points.
Do something she dislikes and points are subtracted.
You don’t get any points for doing something she expects.
Sorry, that’s the way the game is played.
Here is a guide to the points system:
