not lost.

unstable personalities

can a person change

i mean really change

can people

become other people

with varying personalities

over time

and in different situations

common wisdom

would say nope

i mean not really

but recent research

by walter mischel

suggests that

who we are

is an unstable state

and depending on

how we feel about

who we are

this could be unsettling

or spectacular news

please read on


in related un-stability

crash course philosophy

released a video about

the unsettled states

of identity

along the journey

towards finding ourselves

and in our fumbling attempts

to know ourselves

we often

run into



but if the very idea of ourselves

rests on such tenuous ground

perhaps we can give


a break :)
