  •  Shamash.. Intention is the key to all behavior. (2+ / 0-)

    It is the most critical part of any discussion, debate or court case. What is the man's intention? What is your intention? We only have problems when Intention by word is contradicted by Behavior and Action. This is called lying in most places, or obfuscation, or bad faith, or the confidence game, or sociopathy, or.. well any number of terms which show that people are clever enough to cover their intentions with words which are opposite to their behavior and actions. Many, many people think that there is no clear intention ever deducible from action or words, since words are imprecise, and actions can be read in many ways. The divide between word and behavior is the crux of finding out how much a person is true or truthful with himself and others, or deceptive and manipulative, or self-unaware. We know that deceptive people are dangerous because they often go off on others when called out, or when their internal sense of themselves falls apart. They are the core of dangerous people in the world.

    What is your intention with this comment? I am sincerely curious.
