Good point Todd, I have noticed the same thing. I am exactly the opposite. My
life is just one part, I am the same person no matter what I am doing. I have
also noticed that being that way has kept me from various advancements in my
life. It is very difficult for me to associate with people who do things that
are contrary to what I think are fair and just. I do have the presence of
mind to realize that everyone doesn't have to conform to what I think is
right and wrong. But I have also noticed that the people who partition their
lives are a lot less forgiving of behavior they disagree with unless they can
use it to their advantage. From my point of view living like that is
cowardly. I freely stand up for what I believe in, if my word view offends
someone enough that they don't want anything to do with me that's fine but I
won't pretend to like someone I really don't just to gain favor. As for the
people who's world view I cannot accept but I cannot keep from associating
with (family, friends of friends, coworkers) I simply try to limit my contact
as much as possible. Some might call me a misanthrope but no friend has
called for help from me and not received it nor has any total stranger asked
for help and not received it. Even the people who's idea's I do not care for
will get help if needed (except maybe Jessie Helms) Hell, I might even help
"W" if he was broke down on the side of the road!
