Morteza Mostashari's comment, September 15, 2013 6:23 PM
I think it's pretty cool how your identity is based on all these characteristics of your culture, ancestors, and what you like or dislike. It is based around you and you alone, not what others think of you. But unfortunately most people these days allow others to define them in terms of what they like or dislike, so people are so fake these days we honestly don't know who the real person is. I mean there are a few that don't let others define their lives, but most just allow others to run their life and they don't even get a say in it. Your identity is a symbolic self-definition of you, so why would you let others change the way you define yourself?
