The other extreme side

Related stuff: Blogging style inspired by one annoying kid on the KTM who just wouldn't stop asking questions.

"There is a good principle, which has created order, light and man; and a bad principle, which has created chaos, darkness and woman." Pythagoras

Virtually everything has an opposite. Even Newton proved that in his 3rd law of motion.
yin vs yang
head vs tail
evil vs good
3 vs 8 [ok, I made that up]

I firmly believe that there is an extreme side to everything.
If u think that you are a good person in nature, chances are that you'll more likely to perform acts of kindness. However if u regard yourself as a great arrogant person, chances are that you are more likely to promote a personal trait that u are good in.

Question is...have u been to other side? If u have, how deep have u gone?
Lets just say u r the quiet introvert person whose favorite word is either a 'yes' or a 'no'. Would you attend a huge social gathering whom u clearly know that none of friends are going. I mean, you have experienced the life a lone-wolf, one who doesn't initiate conversation, why not try to experience the other extreme side for a change? at least once...
You live your whole life in the world of 'yang', aren't you curious of the world of 'yin'?

If you've been to both extreme sides, you'll might just be lucky to know a little more about yourself, your preference, and your personality.

So, if you are a person who doesn't do sports, why not try rapid-river kayaking for a change?
If u are a person who loves to humiliate other people, why not say good things for a change?
If u are a male, why not try on a bra for a change? [Holy cap, I just discovered the origin of she-male]
(To mom: mom, don't worry, I'm not gonna try yours)

I mean, there are lots of things to experience in this world and some people just wouldn't try it out because they thought that it wouldn't fit with their personality. Don't you think so?

I admit I'm quite an introvert and I tend to avoid social gathering. For some reason, I just prefer not to talk. All this while I thought that I hated the attention. But no, I was so wrong. As an introvert, I enjoyed public speaking. I love talking on a stage, its just that I prefer not to have a face to face talk because I know we'll always end up in that awkward silence.

Hey, who knows?
I mean, if you are physically weak, you might turn out to take a liking on Karate.
If you are relatively stupid person, you might enjoy reading science journal
If you love to be surrounded by fake people, you might enjoy spending a day alone in the forest
Give the other side a chance, will ya?

Have you tried saying 'have a happy day' to a total stranger?
Have you ever sent a flower to a random house?
Have you ever tried talking into someone to visit this owning blog?
We should all try different things for a change, shouldn't we?

This doubles the amount of new things to be done/ tried. Life is interesting.

An introvert is someone who reflects a great deal upon the self, like a thinker, philospher, psychologist, researcher etc. An extrovert directs his attention to the surrounding. An introvert is not necessarily isolated and devoid of social activity.

I'm impressed with your words [This doubles the amount of new things to be done/ tried]. You just put a new perspective in my head. thanks

[yvonne foong]
Wow, spoken like a true psychologist.

er...I'm not ready to reveal that kind of information yet. =P

The traffic jam event was new to me as well. Although it was kinda scary at first, I'm glad I attended the event and met up with you and other bloggers
