At the unit "Personality and Assessment" at the University of Zurich, we are interested in how people differ in their perception of specific personality traits. We are especially interested in what people think about playfulness in adults. You will be asked to rate your thoughts about "playfulness" and provide some demographic information - anonymity is, however, fully secured. Data will only be used for scientific purposes and won't be shared with others.

The whole survey won't take longer than 5-10 minutes. Thank you for your help and contribution to our study. If you have any questions about the study please contact Haley Pruitt at jhpruitt@fortlewis.edu or Lisa Wagner at l.wagner@psychologie.uzh.ch

Kind regards,

I take a Heideggerian approach. One must do what One (the they self) does in a society, but one (my owned self) can choose to do so in an original or unique way. It is not necessary to completely throw yourself into the conformity of the THEY.

"To give examples: when one makes an appeal to what is commonly known, one says "one does not do such a thing"; When one sits in a car or bus or reads a newspaper, one is participating in the world of 'the They'. This is a feature of 'the They' as it functions in society, an authority that has no particular source. In a non-moral sense Heidegger contrasts "the authentic self" (my owned self) with "the they self" ("my un-owned self")."WIKI

To paraphrase Hubert Dreyfus, a plumber may choose to smell the flowers during his lunch hour and he may even to decide to gleefully execute a few dance steps as a sign of his rapture over the flowers, but he would not take off all his clothes and roll around naked in the flowers (at least not in a public place).  :)

Heidegger should have spent more time with HLA Hart. Or with MY plumber!

Heidegger was a great philosopher and he's still well worth reading, but it is a great irony that although he preached against the "THEY", he threw himself into the THEY of fascism in Germany. He became of member of the rabble and it remains as a parmanent stain on his life, his later half apologies notwithstanding.
