Do you view people who have different "selves"--i.e. act differently in different contexts (such as dinner with their parents vs. hanging out with friends)--as hypocritical?
Everyone does this. And should.
I call that flexible and discerning. Unless you mean extremes, like if a video surfaced of Mr Luchesse and Susanr twerking.
Hmmm that's an even scarier image.
I do this too
I don't think that's hypocritical... We all act differently around certain people, I'm not gonna curse like a sailor in front of my 80 year old grandparents, like I would if I was hanging out with friends. It's simply "knowing your audience."
It depends on how drastic the difference is. If they are completely different people & in one setting bashes the way they behave in another context, then yes. But if the the only difference is something like, having more manners with one group, no.
No I also do this and don't really know anyone who doesn't. We act differently around different people. It's different from being 2 faced, in which case is bad.
If they are totally different people, yes. If they just emphasize certain qualities with some, others with other people, no.
I don't act the same way around my 3 year old as I do around my friends. I'm not a hypocrite for that. But I am still me.
I'm going to act differently around my parents at dinner than I would out drinking with friends. Certain situations and people just bring out different sides of me.
Everyone does it. It's just a matter of degree. Anyone who thinks they don't isn't really that in tune with their actions.
I think it's more of a respect thing.
