THE TRUTH ABOUT EXCLUSIVENESS***

GD EXCLUSIVE

Exclusiveness: n. limiting to one subset which is frequently a human and/or group of humans

If there is something only you have or something which only you can do then that is truly something exclusive. There are also exclusive clubs and professional organizations which limit membership to only qualifying individuals.

Running about 70 miles an hour or about 113 kilometers per hour is exclusive to cheetahs and other animals and plants also have some exclusive traits.

The herd instinct in humans impulsively creates a desire for exclusivity and there are many groups and organizations which appeal to this desire for exclusivity. Unfortunately this pride in exclusivity is also the source for much bias and prejudice which creates a feeling of superiority in a group and puts down others who are not members of the exclusive group or club.

Status symbols such as a big house, expensive car, yacht, airplane, and expensive clothing are all really exclusivity symbols and create great pride in their owners. Many fall prey to a desire to possess expensive objects to make up for the fact that many personally have not achieved great personal status in society which is what is really important and what truly merits respect and admiration from other humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRIDE

300px-pride_fc_logo

Pride: n. selfrespect and belief in one’s own (worth and/or ability) and/or (merit and/or superiority) and/or power to achieve a goal(s)

Being proud of your achievements is a largely instinctual emotion and being proud of your offspring or group achievements is an extension of your pride to other humans.

A desire to be proud is what motivates most of us to do good and sometimes great things in life. Without a rather selfish desire to be outstanding in something humans would cease to function efficiently since they would not be very motivated or good at setting goals and achieving them.

There is excessive pride which can sometimes repulse other humans but frequently a little over confidence in ourselves is what keeps us going even in the face of great failure or hard obstacles to overcome.

Nationalistic and group pride is a unifying force between humans but the drawback is that it breeds intolerance of other groups and cultures and is one of the major reasons why prejudice exists in this world and is an obstacle to world unity or commonality of purpose.
