    Being Thanked

    When you post something on here, do you ever look forward to being thanked for your thoughts? I'm not an egomaniac, but when I'm thanked for my thoughts and ideas I can't help but be happy. It feels as though I actually contributed something to someone. Of course at the same time that means if I'm not thanked for a post, I take it probably a lot more personally than I should, and feel as though a little piece of me is being rejected, as if I raise my hand to answer a question and all the students and even the teacher laugh at you for even trying. What about the rest of y'all?

    I guess I like it when I'm thanked for stating something particular.

    But it's one of the reasons I was initially deterred from using this forum. I thought it'd end up being some sort of competitive-like thing where everyone was clambering for "thanks". Kind of like what people do on Facebook for "likes".

    Then I realized it was a bit different. Still, I sometimes find it a bit disconcerting for reasons I personally even can't comprehend. So I don't know. It's nice and all, but I sometimes wonder if when I thank people, I'm doing it for their actual message or for their general attitude on the forum.

    Yet another mind-reading thread! I am like that with everything that I do when it comes to strangers, even the most insignificant thing that I realise has no relevance or concern to most people. I see it as a symptom of insecurity, but one that does have benefits as well.

    Oh, I just realised you didn't mean "thanked" in the general sense. But I think it's the same principle nevertheless.

    That was my bad for the thread title, but being thanked in reality for what you do is extremely similar though. If not the same thing. A thank you is a thank you.

    I'm guilty of it as well. Being thanked on a post does make me feel validated, as if someone just complimented me. But I'm generally not hurt if a post goes thankless unless I spend a really long time writing and thinking through that thought. All of that probably stems from insecurity.

    I use to look a lot more for thanks when I start posting here. Now I come back to my post, just to see if there's a reply. If they are thanked that's just a bonus.

    Think it's pretty normal for me to look back for thanks since the result of my most recent cognitive function test says I pretty much only use introvert functions. I'm such an egoistic person

    It makes feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    Sometimes I wish I could thank all of you twice.
