I agree with you on point 6. With points 6 and 4 I don't have enough interest in the general public to understand how I come off to them. This might be perceived that I hold myself above but I don't. I'm just trying to navigate the world in which I feel comfortable.i think 6-8 are silly. they drag the list credibility down.
i like sarcasm less and less as the years go by. it's mostly just passive aggression dressed up as 'wit', but really, most of it isn't funny enough to justify the cowardice of it iyam. I don't buy 6 and 8 because they are both audience-watching: what effect am I having on everyone else?
i find people interesting and being perceptive is a value, so gossip is one that i 'm on the fence with. if I can nail a psychological dynamic or understand it better, i might. or even toss it in to impede cheap, shallow emo-prurience from other people. for this one id substitute 'respect privacy'.
However, point 8, is an observation by many that I'm around and I can't disregard how I look to others. I do stare, I analyze my surroundings. I recognize that I exhibit this behavior. My apologies if you don't exhibit the behavior.
I still rely heavily on sarcasm but normally reserved for those I trust.
