Urban dictionary says normies are 97% of people. You despise 97% of people…have you gone off the deep end or are you trolling?
97% of the people are not normies. My last two girlfriends were surely not normies. One was an artist, and the other was a hippie who was a bit of an artist too. Nor were any of the other women I have been involved with, including women in their 20’s. My male friends are absolutely not normies. Bottom line is if you are a normie, you probably will not make friends with me or go out with me.
Neither two of my siblings nor my Mom are normies, though they can have tendencies.
However, my mother is a bit normie about certain things, and that is why I really do not like to go to public outings with my Mom, as a normie lecture seems inevitable, and I find myself very worried and inhibited the whole time I am out with her.
One sibling can be way too normie about some things, but that makes no sense considering their own mental health. The sad thing though is that when they are quite ill and their symptoms are bad, they are hardly normie at all. But when they get better, they can get badly normie, but they really are not healthy even then, it is more that the illness in this phase looks very angry, and angry people love to be normie. The few times I have seen them nearly symptom-free in the last 40 years, their normieism completely vanished.
One of my siblings is rarely healthy anymore either, but during the rare times when they are healthy, their normieism goes way down. The more ill they are, the more ferociously normie they get.
Unfortunately one of my siblings is a normie, but that’s precisely why they suck among many other reasons. On rare occasions they become a bit depressed, and then a lot of the normieism goes away. That may seem odd, but the normieism takes out their omnipresent personality disorder, and the PD causes the most vicious normieism.
My father was way too much of normie for most of his life, and that’s one of the main reasons why he sucked. He calmed sown a bit towards the end of his life though, which was also the time when his lifelong personality disorder finally started to wane somewhat.
If you have been following along here, you may have noticed that as people get more mentally ill, they often get dramatically more normie. This is because mental illness is often associated with anger, hostility and general all around assholery, and anger feeds normieism because being a normie is a great way to beat up on people around you. This way you can take out your anger or drag people down to your level or whatever it is angry people are doing. Normieism gives you a menu with about a million different reasons to hate someone for not being normie in some way, and this is why so many angry people are so normie. Social rules tend to be used as weaponry by far too many angry people.
Most of my relatives are not normies. I have two aunts and three cousins who live near my Mom, and none of them are normies. But your family members often won’t be very normie towards you.
Normies suck. And yes, I do hate them.
But as you get older, it seems like there are fewer normies. Most people start doing whatever they want and they also get a lot more tolerant of others. They seem to realize that their own shit does stink after all either, so a lot of their arrogance goes down and with it goes the normieism. Also as people age, they tend to get a lot of wisdom and knowledge, both of which normies lack.
Most smart people are not normies, especially as they get older. It’s a bit hard to find an older intelligent person who is a normie unless they are a scientist. Both age and intelligence work strongly against being a normie. However, many intelligent young people, even those who fashion themselves artists or hipsters, are insanely normie.
Dumb and uneducated people of all ages are very normie. Normie tends to be synonymous with both being stupid and being uneducated.
Most writers are not normies, though I have seen some young web writers are pretty normie. I have known a number of people who write books, and not one was a normie. Novelists are usually not normies. Academics are typically not normie at all, but as you get up into administration as in deans and whatnot, you get a lot more normies.
Scientists vary – some are extremely normie, and others are not at all.
Unfortunately, modern science cultivates a sort of vicious normieism that calls itself skepticism, so most scientists are extremely normie about fringe science, etc. In addition, the excessive normieism of scientists called skepticism leads most scientists o be completely spiritually bereft and actually extremely incurious, which is sad because science is nothing if it is not curious. Science without curiosity can only be a religion, and that is why modern scientists often resemble so closely the religious people they love to rail against..
Frankly I do not see how you can be a modern scientist these days and have any sort of a soul at all. This sort of ultra-skeptical “scientism” they so cultivate is almost spiritual poison. Its gospel (and modern scientism is indeed a religion – see above) seems to be that humans are machines. That is an interesting philosophical concept, but how can you believe that and have a soul? Machines are clearly soulless things, and if we are nothing but machines, we must be soulless too. Obviously if you believe that people are just machines, you can only be soulless.
Most therapists and even psychiatrists are are far too normie, and this is just terrible considering that the folks they work with and are supposed to be helping are not exactly normie at all. How can a therapist or clinician possibly help mentally ill people if the clinician is normie? How can you work closely with eccentrics if you are an anti-eccentric? It seems to defy reason. I believe that normies can be effective clinicians, but they cannot possibly be empathetic ones, since being a normie and having empathy are contradictions.
Arrogance and youth feed normieism, and humility and age tone it down, which makes a lot of sense if you think about as arrogance and youth are linked just as humility and age are.
