Can People Change?



  • Do you think people can change? Why or why not?
    How much can someone change? Is there a limit? At this point we can change anything physically so this mainly has to do with mentality, emotions, and actions.

    Don't believe people can change, tho they can adapt to a certain person / group of people / society, but their personality hardly ever changes.

    Ofcourse they can. Its never too late to change. Change is the only constant.
    We often see movie actors undergoing a change for different roles not just physically, but also mentally to completely submerge themselves in the character. Or we hear people saying that a relationship, friendship or break-up totally changed them. The thing about the world is that you need to change. It always has been and will be the survival of the fittest.....If you can't change and adapt yourself to the changes around you, you wouldn't be able to survive.

    I personally believe in always evolving and you can only evolve if you change and you can only change if you learn. I'm a totally different guy from what I was say about 10 years ago. I have always believed in changing. If somebody meets me after an year or two and says that "You're still the same"... it feels like an insult. It seems to me that I haven't learned much in the last year and I consider that as wastage of precious time aka failure. So there is no limit to changing yourself if you've the will to change and act upon it. Its fun being limitless and constantly pushing the boundaries.



  • Well your being can never change beacuse you where born a specific way and all what you learn is just a paint job to hide the genetic you so no you can never change

    so to give you an example the painting aint squar beacuse the painter inteded it or the painting feels square the paint is squar beacuse the canvas and no one can change the canvas.



  • @TheGoldenMole is it then still a painting or performance art
    is it still you

  • @alkal33 You can cut the canvas, or tear it, you can get creative and even add onto it.



  • Yes, people can change.

    Yes, people change constantly. I´m not the person I was at 14 years old nor the girl who entered school for first time, I´m not even the person I was one year before, when I joined Tws.

    We are forced to evolve depending on our circumstances and how life traits us, we grow more confident or insecure, cynical or carefree based on good and bad experiences, on frustrated expectations and dreams that we could fulfill.

    Of course some people instead of changing will hide their flaws and pretend they are someone else, but that doesn´t mean humans aren´t able to change. It´s in our nature.



  • @Wolfie_11 Now, y'see, this is the polar opposite of my thinking. I'm all about continuity. Change, ambition -to my mind, these things can be achieved by anyone, with very little effort. In my experience, the most valuable wisdom you accrue over time doesn't really change you in any discernible way, it's just there as a background vibe, as if the world, other people, everything that happens to you, everything you want, that's Bill Grundy trying to interview you. But your mind, that's the Sex Pistols, and the whole thing is so painfully mundane you can't even be bothered to be cheeky any more.



  • People can't really change, they can only control themselves... action/emotions. Whatever. Or you can learn it from others.

    This was refreshing and I like your view. When an actor does change roles though, do you think that is similar to us changing personalities? As in, do you think it is as easy for us to change our personalities as easy as it is for them to create one and live as one for a show or movie?



  • @Captain Do you think a serial that has committed countless of murders and hate crimes could change?

    @Lurker Well what defines a persons personality? what are the parts that absolutely cant change?

    A sore loser for example, no matter how many times he loses he'll remain a sore loser, he won't learn to be graceful in his defeat, cuz it's something instinct-ish. All he can do is learn to control it to let's say, not blame it on others for his loss when that wasn't the case, if we are talking about team based game.


  • Hella Assassins Fake Moderators

    @TheGoldenMole

    Damn, teach me how did you do that? I've been a sore loser for so long and all I managed is to not take it on my team-mates 😂



  • @Lurker when I win or when I loose there is no difference. The only difference is you get to say "I won" or "I lost" the same game is being played and the fun is still the same. Its just one word that changes things, literally just a word. Being upset by a loss is only because you have too much pride, which is something you have to push aside to see the bigger picture, to see what really matters. Saying " I won" or "I lost" doesn't matter, saying "I played" does. That's how I got over it anyway, hope this helps, no one likes a sore loser 😂



  • @TheGoldenMole I guess that is interesting. The obvious answer would be that people who change too capriciously are being played like fiddles by peer-pressure, or the almighty £, or some kinda weird psychology. Maybe, now that we're all living such sedate lives, evolution is getting royally frunked up viz-a-viz our intellectual development and social status, and housewives think they can be business people, and no teenager will consider getting a job unless someone makes it feel like long-term, specialist training by calling it 'an apprenticeship', and Twitter exists, and MPs devise ever more elaborate, posterity-chasing public expenditure projects, even though we're still running a vast deficit and our bedrock economy is based on nothing.

    @TheGoldenMole People change people.



  • @INFINITY You don't think someone can change on their own ?


  • Hella Assassins

    @Indrid-Cold
    I think its quite natural to oppose the changes as most of us like to be in the comfort zone. And though I partially agree with the fact that most of the wisdom acquired doesn’t change you, however, the fact that we acquire more knowledge and wisdom with time is the change. And you always have the option of forcing the change if the surroundings become too mundane.I think that our advanced intellectual capability should be used to produce a change and spice up the life a bit than doing the same regular things or else what difference will their be between man and machines?
