These exact people yeah of course most would never say these things IRL but this is who they are deep down inside. These will be the people who are associates with you and who will be partners at the firms you work at. If you can't deal with them here you need a new profession. Some professions tend to attract kind, uplifting generally happy people. Law, especially the type of people that are shooting for the top law schools, tends (I said tends not always does, clearly there are some nice, happy people on TLS, just in the minority) to attract a-holes. Get used to it.


I am an ornery poaster because I have low self-esteem.


Relevant:
Bullies truly don't have low self-esteem. They actually have much higher self-esteem, which is why they bully.
(Random collection of social psych studies on self-esteem, figured it'd be good to know)


I'd say sometimes true, sometimes not. After years of working with teens, I've seen plenty of bullying driven by low self-esteem

Hmmm, interesting. I guess it partly depends on how you define self-esteem. The bully's over-inflated sense of self, possibly defined as high self-esteem, often seems like a mechanism to keep on the the "right" side of the bullying coin. I wouldn't call that true self-esteem, but I would certainly have to look at more reputable studies than simply my own experience.

Here's a study that finds Narcissism + High Self esteem leads to the greatest aggression (whereas low self esteem did not)
--LinkRemoved--

But some older studies seem to imply Bullies have low self esteem, so I guess it might be controversial?
We just learned in my social psych classes that Narcissism/High Self Esteem -> Aggression, so I assume that's what's currently the accepted belief.


cool, thanks for the link! interesting stuff

For some reason, I always read your posts using the accent of the Geico gecko.

I thought about this as well. :mrgreen:

OP you have to be tough to deal with the real world! A few words of bully won't matter, you have to endure even more!

International law is the next great frontier

I have a great reason/plan for going to law school, but no one else does.

Alternatively, everyone else has a great reason/plan for going to law school, but you don't.

You are not a special little snowflake. I don't care if you did sleep under a bridge while finishing college and manage to graduate with honors, someone else has done it and they did it better than you. If you want any shot at HYS, you'd better get on curing cancer or winning a few gold medals. Even then, it's a crapshoot really. :lol:

Well, the thread is 'what you have learned on TLS'...it seems that regardless of what your story is it won't be considered a 'great soft'...

No, the thread is "Everything I need to know about Law School I learned at TLS", which translates to "ITT: I Bitch about how mean TLS is"

Well, excusez-moi. Suitably chastised for my RC fail. :)

Besides, ITT we bitch about how mean people on TLS are. I am on TLS, therefore I must be mean otherwise there is no reason for this thread.

In any case, it was a joke. Jeez... :roll:
