I Don’t Get This Dude.
I need some insight into the psychology behind really outwardly, masculine, chauvinistic men. The lab partner of mine that apparently thinks he is entitled and knows it all (although really, the title should be mine according to the NPI… well, not the entitlement part, actually…) takes the time to bring two servings of lunch with an extra fork and water bottle ocassionally because he knows I often skip lunch, either because I forget or don’t have time to pack it. He also made mention today of the fact that I’m wearing a new perfume. What a sick freak… ha ha ha. It just boggles my mind. I guess it’s the caveman mentality. “Here, let me club you and drag you by the hair to my cave because I like you.” Hmmm. It’s intriguing to say the least. I’m really into psychology and social interactions between different types of people but I must say that this is the most polar yet magnetic relationship I’ve ever experienced. Being the egomaniac that I supposedly am, I enjoy the positive attention he gives me but being somewhat authoritative I really could care less to have him expressing doubt or trying to exert his control over what I do around the lab. I don’t succumb to that kind of bullshit. I am not his subordinate.
