I'm obsessed with time, so I can't help thinking about the 5 different phases of our lives. We're a baby, we're a child, then a young adult, then we're middle aged, then we reach old age. Five different phases, and feels like five different people in one lifetime. Although I'm the same person I feel the difference all through. Now I've turned into my dad, I feel different again. Only a couple years, and I'll start the final phase. Any thoughts?


It's even more complicated than that. Psychologists believe that teenagers (young adults) have at least four different personalty traits each revealing itself according to circumstance: the one when they are with parents, the one when they are with siblings, the one when they are with members of their peer group and one when they are with adults in authority (teachers, youth club workers etc). The onslaught of social media, messageboards, chatrooms etc also shows that many people have virtual personalities and traits that they would not demonstrate in 'real world' situations.

I can't help thinking that we all behave totally differently in different places and situations according to what's allowed. At work, out with friends, at home with family etc. I don't think we ever lose that. If we did, we'd probably find ourselves in a lot of trouble.
