384: 2011-07-02: If someone is inherently paranoid, you must be careful about the information you give him, because it could be used against you.
385: 2011-07-02: When someone is paranoid, diplomacy will only get you so far. You can give it a shot, but they'll likely see threat in every noble gesture.

398: 2011-04-08: If someone has truly found a way to make money, he is unlikely to let you in on it.
399: 2011-04-08: You make money reliably only in fields you know personally and intimately yourself, where you aren't relying on someone else's knowledge.
400: 2011-04-08: If you have money, the dumbest thing you can do with it is to give it to someone with a brilliant idea.
401: 2011-04-04: You can't outwit someone else's paranoia. They will see right through your best intentions.
402: 2011-04-03: There's no arguing with someone on the rising arc of their career. They have things all worked out and can't conceive of any downside.
403: 2011-04-03: Someone can speak a dozen languages and still not have a clue about people. They have technical skills but not meta-skills.
404: 2011-04-02: When someone uses straw man against you, there's really no defense. They've gone paranoid, and all you can do is withdraw.
405: 2011-04-02: The straw man, in a personal conflict, is when someone distorts your words into the worst possible connotation then attacks that version.
406: 2011-04-01: RT @HisHoliness: If you rely on someone who has lower qualities than yourself, that will lead to your degeneration.
407: 2011-03-28: When someone insists on a clean knife for slitting their wrists, you understand why they're suicidal. No perspective.

416: 2011-03-13: Someone's "base delusion" is the main one that drives their life. (e.g. seeking fame) It is usually immune to any rational discussion.
417: 2011-03-13: Even on twitter, we can see someone's life go awry. We DM them and get only anger and defensiveness. That's all you can do in RL, too!
418: 2011-03-13: It can be painfully obvious to us how someone is heading down a bad path, but we can't tell them because they don't want to hear it.
419: 2011-03-12: When relationships go bad, it is not because someone changed. Instead, defects we chose to ignore during courtship come back to haunt us.
420: 2011-03-10: Uncomplicated sex is a myth. Sooner or later, someone's going to take it seriously.
421: 2011-03-09: Whenever something or someone seems perfect, you need to ask yourself, "What's wrong with this picture?"

424: 2011-03-08: When we say someone has a "big ego" we really mean the opposite: their ego is so weak they have to over-assert the pretense of it.
425: 2011-03-06: If someone knows you will rescue them, they will be less inclined to protect themselves. They could even become addicted to rescue!
426: 2011-03-06: If you support someone unconditionally, they will take advantage of you unconditionally. They will use your support to avoid responsibility.
427: 2011-03-03: To correct the defects of your childhood, you must become your own parent. Someone has to set boundaries and goals, and that must be you!

442: 2011-01-06: Predictions for 2011: You or someone you know will suffer from a serious disease or life-threatening accident.
443: 2011-01-04: The detachment of the internet means you can blow someone off or run them over and never feel it yourself. It's only electrons!
444: 2011-01-04: A rare thing in the modern world: gratitude. You go out of your way to help someone (online or in person) then hear nothing back. Nada!
445: 2010-12-30: Show me a pot legalization advocate and I'll show you someone trying to justify his own use. Concern for humanity has little to do with it.
446: 2010-12-18: Someone can be "smart" and "talented" but that's only part of the story. The rest is how they are emotionally invested.

450: 2010-12-14: The opposite of freedom is entrusting your fate to someone else.
451: 2010-12-10: Long #ff lists are annoying and not very useful. If someone is good, don't tell us but show us by retweeting their best stuff.

467: 2010-11-18: The concept of drug treatment is inherently flawed. It only frees the addict of responsibility by placing his cure in someone else's hands.
468: 2010-11-14: You can't reason with the gambler, the addict or someone in love. They may agree with your logic, but it won't change their behavior.
