You're so vain I bet you think this blog is about you....

More pictures of me. Most of my readers see me on a regular basis. So posting pictures of me is some what pointless. But I post them anyway. I am not too vain, I hope.;) Thoughts on that have spawned my insignificant inquiry for today. Is vanity stronger among men or women? Webster's dictionary defines vanity as: inflated pride in oneself or one's appearance. Which sex is generally more vain? Most would say women. But I have met some very vain men. When women walk into a room with a mirror they look at themselves. Do men do that? That does not constitute vanity. Vanity is when you can't take you eyes off yourself. What causes people to become vain? Sometimes it is to cover insecurities. It is used to show others that you are above them. The true reasons for vanity are insecurities and/or not being honest with yourself. Not being confident enough in yourself, to be secure. My parents have always taught that there will always be someone who is better looking, smarter, more talented, ect. They have taught me to be content with myself and always strive for my best.

I think women are more vain than men, although there are vain men. I think there is a difference in taking pride in your appearance and being prideful about your appearance. Someone who constantly looks in the mirror is either very prideful or very insecure or both. On the surface, a vain man might be attractive, but not necessarily make a good husband. This sounds like a good discussion for art class.

By the way, I don't think you are vain. You do have great style - especially the shoes :)

Not that the Greeks are the end all definer's of vanity but Ovid would say men...or at least this one. Carly Simon would also agree-
"You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and..."

There is an element of vanity in blogging, especially in that of comments...whether the commenter or the commentee. Interesting that...

piper your comment is definitely thought provoking.
I would be inclined to agree with the point mentioned in Ashley's post about insecurity. Seems to me the more secure and confident you are about your self the less likely your thoughts are gonna be constantly drawn to or centered on your self. Man or Woman

Well, male vanity might depend, in part, upon where the male is located. I'm thinking of that metrosexual thing.

I try not to generalize about people, thinking most traits depend on the person exhibiting that trait, and not the population, in general... male or female. Politics aside, of course.

But. I've met some pretty danged vain men in my life. Women, too.

On quite another subject... nice pics of you, Ashley. I'd seriously consider moving to Duncan were I about... oh... 35 years younger. Or so. ;-)

Inquiries said...

Lou: Yes, it would be a good discussion for art.
Thanks for the shoe compliment. I love shoes.

Jay: Yes, there is a element of vanity in blogging and the comments.

Dawn: I completely agree. Vanity is not defined by the sexes. But by the individual.

Buck: I agree with your metro sexual point.
On your other point. Thank you, you made me blush. Why younger? ;)
