On personality

On the occasion of my birthday, I have come to realize that there is an innate personality, at least for me, that is resilient against the environmental effects of aging and the lessons learnt thereby. It certainly does not make particular emotional states any easier to deal with. I see "maturity" as the gaining of a certain mercenary attitude towards one's relationships, and an impassive and rather crass accounting of one's needs and of how well those needs are being met.
