  • Nah, I'm still an original.
  • I suppose at least half of it is being Japanese, but I now live in the USA, so I have learned some different ways.
  • Some of it is because of my religious beliefs that govern behavior. For example Matthew 22:37-39 speaks of love of God and of neighbor as the two greatest commandments. I strive to practice these in my every day life.
  • I'm a product of my parents and of my lifelong events
  • There is no device to measure such things. Besides, who cares? Ultimately we are a product of our choices regardless of the influence. You are who you choose to be regardless of what or whom you choose to blame for your choices. Ultimately you are the one who chooses how you react to whatever circumstances present themselves.

  • A lot, I think. I moved a lot so I have seen a lot of different societies over time and as an adult I have the perspective to know that you can change your environment by moving to another one or surrounding yourself with different people, so all in all who you are is a sum total of all your choices throughout life. I can't change the fact that I was molested as a toddler because of the environment my mentally damaged mother provided and my father left me to endure, but I can choose how to respond to what happened. I can choose to put it behind me and not let any of my many offenders continue to hurt me into my future just because I choose to let them stay in my head. I kicked them out of my head and never give them another second of my conscious thought! I decide what stays in my head and push that out with more positive thoughts! I let God deal with them.
