POS Test, 4th Edition

pos test 4

“Everyone has a surface layer of bullshit. These are lies that you tell yourself to make yourself feel like you’re OK. The depths of these lies are insurmountable. Insurmountable is too little of a word.

All you have to do is scroll through Facebook or Twitter to see the the levels that people are willing to hypnotize themselves to their own bullshit. The lies that people are willing to tell themselves to make up for their insecurities and why their life isn’t working out.

Millions and millions of ‘gammas,’ who instead of looking in the mirror, instead of taking one ounce of self awareness, and looking at why their life is the way it is, they have to convince themselves.

They have hypnotized themselves so deeply to their own bullshit that it’s much more logical to them that some motherfucker that they have never met in their entire lives, has determined the outcome of their lives and is responsible for a lot of their problems.

And so they take out all their energy on some imaginary level of shit that they made up in their own head to convince themselves that everything is OK with them (because in their mind, they really do believe that they are doing everything perfectly*).

Now you might giggle and smirk because these people are fucking pathetic. However, we (as in entrepreneurs, this monologue is from an entrepreneurship channel) are the same way. We’re the same way except our levels of bullshit are a little less obvious.

We’ve held ourselves to a slightly higher level of bullshit. But bullshit is bullshit if it’s bullshit.

They’re insane.”

They ARE insane, and are obsessed with the wrong thing. But of course, I’ll be the one they vilify when I tell them this. Welcome to the wild world of collectivism.*

*= I added this little part for some clarity, as well as relevance to this article.

Thank you Mr. Alex Becker for this wonderful monologue, which came from this video. That video is on my list of my ten favorite youtube videos in the last ten years, which I’ll be publishing shortly.

It’s a really good video for a lot of reasons, and I pretty much watch it daily ever since I discovered it about a week ago.

 

All that being said, are you ready for my 4th installment of my POS test?

This is something I update every six months just to see if there is any more social or political crap that needs to be added. And there are a couple of things that I am going to add.

What I might do is create a page on this blog that contains this test and update that every six months. We’ll see.

Anyways, here we go!

If you are under 18, immediately add 10 points. You are at an age where you are extremely impressionable and suspect to all kinds of programming from other POS’s, from your parents to your teachers, to yes, even me. Also, when you are 18, society pretty much dictates that you take yourself as seriously as humanly possible.

If you are under 25, add 5 points. You are still impressionable, and even worse, you (often belligerently) shout that you aren’t impressionable while you regurgitate the very sources that influenced you. I myself have done this when I was in my early 20s.

If you are currently in high school or college, add 20 points. You are around POS fueled ideas all around you when you are in school. Whether you like it or not, you are affected by them.

Add 30 points if you have been to a demonstration, protest, or anything similar to the picture at the beginning of the article in the past six months. Doing this kind of stuff is not only a tragic waste of energy, but it is also a violent violation of individual human rights. No matter the cause, deciding to inconvenience others because you feel inconvenienced reveals some very toxic qualities.

20190110_120757
Saw this while driving today. According to this, all of these people would score at least 30 points. They are wasting their time. And they probably know it.

If you have personally organized or led any of said demonstrations or protests, give yourself 100 and do not bother taking the test. Your mind is already made up. Have fun selfishly telling others what is best for them.

Add up all your responses to the previous sections. This will determine your POS score.

 

What does your score mean?

First, allow me to reveal the most important question.

The most important question is that one at the end, the redemption/confirmation question. If you take your beliefs and opinions too seriously to where you they literally define who you are, like with this person, things will not work out well for you in the long term, and you certainly will not be happy in the long term.

Additionally, you will run the risk of getting swayed in multiple directions based on the opinions of your peers and whatever else happens to be the “in-style” way of thinking. I have witnessed people with far-right opinions turn right around and express far-left opinions in a matter of seconds.

Never let other people determine your values or principles. Never.

If you scored anything above 80 on this test, and especially if you selected that first option on that final redemption/confirmation question, take a good, hard look at if these outside forces you intend to fight against is really holding you back. Chances are very, very good that they are not, and you are wasting your energy, big time.

A good score to shoot for on this test is about 40 or 50. It is alright to have opinions on certain stuff, but letting these opinions affect your future actions, being paranoid for your kind, or thinking that something is some “wild injustice” against your kind will not end well.

True to our culture becoming less centered around individualism and more centered around collectivism, there are no answers on this test that give zero points. This is something that you might have noticed, and I did this for a reason. Keep this in mind; the social pressure to be a collectivist is never ending.

Life is about accepting, adapting, and adjusting to what happens around you. That is how Immortal Individuality is achieved.

If you scored really high on this, it means that your emotional stake is in things around you instead of your own actions. Simply put, it means that the world around you has some semblance of power over your world.

Outside forces should never have too much agency, no matter who you are. This is not an easy thing to accomplish, but it will make you much better than most.

Here’s a little secret: If everything around you operated the way you wanted it to, you would still not be happy. You would still be cherry picking things that needed to be “fixed.”

This is a very deep and dangerous rabbit hole to jump down. If you scored anything over 80 on this test, you have been tempted by it. Take that energy and focus it on other things that make you happier. It WILL make you happier or my name isn’t Joelsuf.

Here’s another secret. Progress is never achieved on a grand scale. It is always achieved on an individual basis.

You “solve” things one person at a time.

How do you do that? By being the light that other people want to follow.

There is a reason why all of these major religious figures changed the lives of people all by their lonesome. It is because they inspired others with their discoveries, their achievements, their teachings and their own sense of Immortal Individuality.

And here’s another secret. People who are truly successful? They don’t even think about this kind of stuff. And by truly successful, I’m not talking about famous people or people who think that working for the man for 50 years and hoping that others will take care of you in your old age is somewhat successful.

I’m talking about people who have created their own empires and who live and breathe their business. These kinds of people may have some opinions on this kind of stuff, but they don’t even waste any longer than a few minutes of their time on it.

If you are truly interested in being happy and successful to the point where you will not need to rely on anybody for anything ever again, you would do well to score as low as possible on this test.

See you in June for the 5th edition! By then this will probably be a page on this blog, if I can make one.
