I have a packed eighth house and am very interested in stuff like this…
“You SF guys,” I said. “You don’t seem to get to attached to each other, do you? I mean I know there were some people you preferred and others you distinctly did not like but it just seems people in Special Forces don’t form that close of attachments with each other. Do they teach you that? Because I could see how it could hinder things.”
“No, they don’t teach you that but it’s true. We don’t get that close to each other as a rule,” he said.
“Is it because you’re all going to die anyway? Is that it? No sense making friends because that guy is liable to die anyway and so are you which means you’re all about to be discarded.”
“That may be it. Or it may just be the strong egos. People in Special Forces all have strong egos. They have very strong personalities and this is may also be what prevents them from attaching.”
I thought this was interesting but I am not sure he is right. I have a strong personality as does everyone I know. I can’t imagine being interested in interacting or attaching to someone with a weak personality.
What do you think?
