Motives seem to be strange when dealing with individual variation. You can speak to someone and know that there is some ineffable quality that defines this person. Then you speak to others, and it seems as though they do things, experience events, simply to add to their resume. A list of things they can now claim simply to impress others, and yet though they claim love for certain behaviors the defining quality still remains absent. I claim so little as far as salient behaviors when first meeting people, because these superficialities say nothing about us, and in fact can sometimes distract from who we truly are. We build our resumes in fear that a blank paper might be more revealing that any word. Just because you were there does not mean its now real. Latent opaque traits are interesting, and all else suffers from tediousness.
