Naked personality

Not sure I understood anything after the headline, and I don't see any practical applications, but it seems to suggest we are predestined to be naturists if we are intellectuals who swear a lot. Or something like that ...

I'd need to read the entire program to make sense of it. This is just a few things about it listed, but it sure made my ears pop up.

Some of these personality tests do give amazing results. I wonder what percentage of the population fits in the intellectual/open to experience category. The other traits would identify them and they would be the next targeted converts to body freedom in practice. You could probably track them down on the internet by their other interests and go fishing (guess who will be using this information when the government starts allowing the giveaway of people's personal viewing, aka no longer secure in our private effects and papers).

I wonder if the categorizes tend to hang out together, if there is an attraction of like people.

It would be a tool to attract a political movement to influence and expanding a base, like types of conservatives or left leaning progressives. People have tendencies to sway easier than others to positions. Great tool for dirty tricks, stimulating political action, taking astro turf to a grass roots, etc. This could be a guideline to creating a whole new power paradigm.

I am reminded of Groucho's comment,
"I wouldn't want to join a club that would have me as a member."
This can be modified to accommodate participation in any survey seeking to determine what group I fit in.

I am also reminded of Hitler's attempts to classify humans.

I like it!  I conform to the naked norm!  Intelligent, do art, eat spicy breakfasts (occasionally) and don't follow a sports team - me all over.  I just love it that a naturist tendency correlates with intelligence.  Just read the correspondence on this forum for further evidence of that!

This forum, together with most other naturist forums, certainly has a higher standard of literacy that you meet elsewhere on the web.
The principal exception to this is "True Nudists" which seems to attract an undue proportion of illiterate idiots.

There seems to be much of people attempting to say something clever and quick. There is no substance, but these are so often not the naturists.

Apparently I'm not the only one wary of that site.

It has always struck me as a dating site for nudists although I haven't been motivated to explore it in depth. At least it appears to be a social site for people enjoying being naked for whatever reason.

More people doing their everyday activities nude.

To bring in another literary source, Truenudists is like 1984. I mean the George Orwell book, where the "Ministry of Truth" dispensed lies, the "Ministry of Love" coordinated repression, and so forth. In this case the setup of "True Nudists" encourages fakes; by using images of young women around the site, they make it clear that voyeurs are the ones being catered for, and the atmosphere never improves. It's no surprise that the same owners have a companion site in a similar format called "True Swingers" (which may actually be more honest--nobody's pretending that it's about anything else). But having said that, I won't deny that there are probably some people on Truenudists looking for a genuine naturist experience, and they may be quite frustrated by it. They need to look elsewhere.

Naturally, Truenudists has a policy that you have to be over 18 to join. Adults only, for "adult" interests!

I joined "True Nudist" a year or so ago. I grew bored with one to three word responses. I am a creature that enjoys conversation even written.  The many propositions form men and women lacked anything creative. After being hit up too many times by those seeking hook ups, I left.  I now avoid almost all sites claiming to be naturist or nudist. As others have pointed out, if the site sports too many pictures of nude young ladies, you can be sure it is not a real naturist site.  Most of us seem to be older.

Back to personality traits. I joined a few classes on Creative Live. One was on personality types and how to turn your personality into a winning asset. In the course a link was given to a site that charted personality traits. After answering a list of a 100 question, maybe more, my personality was charted. This test is the real thing, not one of those things on Facebook. I fell smack on the high point of being open.

 Being an open personality wasn't a surprise. I talk loud, often using my hands. Love stories. I have always been an explorer of life. Nudity always is there. Even to being a life model to pay college bills.  I chalked some of it up to being in the arts.

I shares way too much. Teaching art out of my studio proved challenging. I saw nothing wrong with all the nudes on my walls. Living in a very conservative town, I soon learned my students, while they wanted to learn, could not grasp the sources that inspired my drive to acquire drawing and painting skills.  Interestingly I had some nuns who loved my classes.

While I have had to teach myself to be more careful in sharing. I refuse to trade my personality for something less interesting.  Nudity is part of my personality.  It is part of being open. Whether seeking like minded open personalities is a key means for spreading naturism, I can not say.  There is a dark side to the open personality, that is being a little paranoid. It leads to questions: like am I over sharing, did I share with the wrong person or God did I post something that was too honest.  Product of being burnt I guess.

There are more than a few porn and soft porn sites claiming to be nudist sites.  I don't mind seeing occasional photos of young naked women though.  But I'm an old man now and my photo is not what they are looking for. 

I have started sharing nude photos on web sites that are NOT primarily nudist sites.  Places that do not self identify as "nudist" sites.  I use Twitter, Similar Worlds, a thing called MeWe, etc. 

My belief is that naked humans is the NORMAL way for humans.  All that clothing is an aberration. So I quit doing it on-line.

I'm not sure what over sharing involves.   I seem to have gained about 75 followers on Twitter now, people who get my nude pictures every day.  Some of them re-share my photos. 

I don't have a day job so I'm not in jeopardy of being fired.  I encourage other people to share.  I don't have nude photos posted in my home though.

I also enjoy more discussion, not just photos of young people. 

Carpe Diem!

Over sharing usually happens in social situation requiring small talk with people you just met.  Over sharing is telling people your total life story. It is verbal nudity. People who are passionate about a hobby, political point of view, life style and so on tend to over share.

What I dislike with many so called nudist sites  and site on Flicker is the rampant lifting of photos from other sites and the too many sexually suggestive images. Most of these are young women posed in such away that is suited for a pin-up calendars.

Sharing nude images of self with those who signed up for your feed is not over sharing. But throwing nude pictures of self out on to sites can be a form of exhibitionism.

Which raises the question of where do you draw the line between sharing and exhibitionism, or are they overlapping concepts.
Please don't follow this up or we will have one of those silly debated like "hat is the difference between nudism and naturism" which seem to clog up so many forums.

Exhibitionism is a form of abuse. Sharing thoughts and opinions  when not asked can be a form of abuse. The person on the receiving end often makes the judgement. Exhibitionism like over sharing often results in people avoiding the person known to be an over sharer. The same for exhibitionism. It is the question of the best way to achieve a goal.  The cure for over sharing is showing real interest in others. Learn who they are ask questions that get them talking. Learn where there is common ground. Use the common ground as the place to build understanding. Being smart is far better than using force. Exhibitionism is devising ways of forcing ones self onto others. Often there is a sexual note actual or imagined in exhibitionism.

It would seem to me that there is intent inherent in defining exhibitionism and sharing. Exhibitionism as a more psychological definition requires some sexual satisfaction. It can also be an act to get a reaction, a shock, or a sense of superiority, a victimization. Doing something to get approval from others is something else that can also be overdone. To me, I'm struck that "sharing" is a strange term for posting pics on the internet. I think of sharing as doing a favor for someone. But, there is the derivative of sharing as in a support group. It is exposure with the intent to heal, identify with, a story to teach among other purposes in group therapy.

Exhibitionism is a form of abuse.

I suppose that is true within a very limited definition of "exhibitionism."   Running naked through a soccer match is not abusive.  Walking naked down a street is not abusive.  The people seeing another human member of their own species are not being harmed and many enjoy looking.  An overt sexual intrusion in someone's peaceful life would be a form of abuse, but not just seeing another human.

I agree that religious zealots coming to my door to tell me that my religion is wrong, so I should join their religion, are being abusive.
