    Saying I'm agitated, likening me to a devious politician, saying I'm ashamed of admitting you are right and calling me closed minded does not counter my argument.
    Your focus is on me in relation to your own personal issues.
    If you were as open minded as you delude yourself into believing, you would look at the arguments rather than your own navel.

    Thanks Chris.I woke up knowing you're right.That's nice!The problem is studying in isolation and not sharing my thoughts!
    Like I said before it was not about you personally!I'm just reflecting. The possibility that the response where this all came from
    (then it almost certainly is) is interpreted by someone else as negative is as likely as you feeling attacked or anything by what I said.
    Anyway I am glad you responded and gave it some thought. Let's just continue on why we should paint

    Then you have to ask yourself whether your thoughts are genuinely stupid or boring, or whether it's fear of rejection talking.

    Vineris: That's a good point, perfectly put!

    Gibi: Thanks for your recent post. Especially as I can come over a little sharp when trying to nail down something I believe more important than usual - for which you have my apology.

    Vinerus: I'll add to that, If you think your thoughts are stupid or boring at least share them. You need a second opinion.
    Chris: you know you are welcome. I am not stubborn. This is me sharing my stupid, boring thoughts and learning from them

    Now I just say we should paint to find and push forward our boundaries.

    Sure. I learn a lot by arguing with smart people. You have to have some confidence for that, though, because being constantly wrong is a bit hard on the ol' ego.
