If you wanna be a mean, elitist asshole, who makes everyone around them feel less than, insecure, excluded, etc, it’s easy peasy! here’s your sure fire ticket into a super cool hierarchy of the mean people/cooler kids club. People will whisper about you and wonder why you don’t like them.
The ‘meanster‘ breeds the worst kind of person: the ‘insecure mess’! The ‘insecure mess’ is probably lovely, has a lot of potential, but is too easily wrapped up in whether the meanies like him/her. They need too much validation from everyone. It isn’t 100% the ‘meansters‘ fault- but they really help the sickness perpetuate.
I don’t recommend being a ‘meanster‘ cuz it usually stems from insecurities, a need to be in control by hurting other people,and trying to control peoples feelings. the longer the ‘meanster‘ is a mean, shit talking, hater, keeping people down-the harder it will be for the ‘meanster‘ to take chances and put themselves out into the world to be judged. because they’ll be afraid that everyone else is as cruel and judgemental as they are. but, it’s up to you.
here are the ‘meanster‘ ingredients:
sit back. Always look mean and bored AT THE SAME TIME. never remember having met someone, even if you do! If someone puts their hand out for you to shake it, DON’T! If a person makes a joke, don’t laugh! Instead, learn how to do the “are you fucking serious face” keeping direct eye contact with the victim at hand. THEN, slowly look away to the left, THEN roll your eyes to the right! when someone gets excited about something, indulge them for a few minutes to engage their trust. fake your enthusiasm! match THEIR enthusiasm- for WHATEVER they’re taking about. Then withdraw and completely turn on them! Pow! Like a warm knife in their back! and just stare at them blankly like you are SO repulsed and shocked by the fact that you’re in the presence of such lame’ocracy! Act as though you are completely unaware/numb to the hurt feelings of the person whose heart you just ripped out.the person you just pulled the rug out from under.
It’s easy to be a cruel, vicious, mean, elitist, snob. All it takes is withdrawing who you are. Not putting yourself on the line. Monitoring every syllable you utter, so no one will make fun of you. Being devoid of a strong personality. Not letting people see the real you. Keeping the people around you, friends AND enemies, from ever really feeling safe around you. ACTUALLY, being devoid of a personality to begin with REALLY helps!
if this is the personality you want to have, good luck. hopefully you’re a very talented person, make a lot of money or are super good looking. Because people are much more willing to take crap from a beautiful, famous, rich monster; than an average, regular, ugly, poor monster. But you still couldn’t pay me to be near you.
in reality, everyone’s just a nerd. All the bullshit is pretentious and a cover up! speaking of talent/success and the personalities that go hand in hand with those qualities: every super powerful, successful, inspiration I’ve ever met has been the most open, no nonsense person. No aloof pretense and superficial shell. They know who they are, they like themselves, or have at least accepted themselves. they’re open to learning new things, hearing what people have to say, and if nothing else- they have compassion and understanding enough to be accepting of people and be polite enough to grant common courtesy. It’s HARDER to be like this. It’s harder to be comfortable in your skin. But the pay off is so much better! I promise! Choose wisely! Xoxo
