The Friday Four

TFF – Season 2 – Game 2

Question Fun Directory

The Friday Four
Ah questions, questions, questions – what is it about you and questions Rory?
Simple, l just like asking questions.

Today some thought provokers …
** Denotes Questions Further Inspired this week by Readers – Ashley – Mental Health @ Home , Paula of Light Motifs II and Angie of King Ben’s Grandma from the 24 Hour Blog Question – Are You Likeable?
**What is more important to you – to be ‘Liked’ or to be Respected?’
** What do you believe to be the difference between admiration and respect or do you find them to be the same?
** Likability and friendship are two different things. Being likable to many is great, but being a great friend to a few (or one) is rare – what do you think to that statement – true or false, agree or disagree?
How uniquely YOU are you in a world filled with variations of you anyway – what seperates YOU from the rest of the world and makes you Youniquely You??

Let me know your answers below in the comments section – cheers.

  1. I would say that admiration adds another layer on top of respect. I might admire someone who has similar beliefs and values to my own and who is championing a cause that’s important to me. Those things are necessary for me to respect someone.

    I see likability as an individual characteristic that’s relevant in the early stages, but once a friendship develops between two people, it’s not particularly relevant.

  2. I would rather be respected than liked.
    By respect, I mean basic courtesy and decency. Live & let live.

    I think a lot of people confuse respect with admiration or showing deference to. Like a parent or boss demanding “respect” or saying you respect some public figure for xyz, when it admiration

    Words have power, we should choose them wisely.

    Totally agree with Paula’s statement

    I think what separates me from the rest is my playful nature, I dance with my cart in the grocery store, my empathy and attention to small details (when I’m paying attention) and my height🤷🏼‍♀️ there aren’t a lot of 6′ tall women dancing around stores😂

    1. Words do have power, they can be like finely tipped poison arrows or blunt like 357 dum dums and it always to how they are armed to begin with – a balanced orator or writer can produce true beauty with words 🙂

      Yes l agree with you respect and admiration are too often confused or thought to be the same.

      Mm, l find the fascination of people with respect versus like truly intriguing.

      For me a healthy balance is all that is important – but then if we look at your variation of respect – l would interpret that as simply being polite and courteous which is of course just another alternative of respect.

      Of course there are various environments for the magical R word – the workplace is different, the power of knowledge and or authority is different again, respect of a brand something else again – then there is personal respect of another or is that not the same as simply respecting another person because we should be courteous and polite to everyone.

      Respect is learned first and then earned second … still a fascinating topic.

      Good answers Angie – thought provoking further 🙂

  3. 1.) Ummm neither … either you like me or you don’t … and respect – that is earned – I am “always” respectful – So I don’t put myself at the mercy of what others think at this point in my life. I don’t think about that in that manner

    2.) to admire – is to adore or enjoy what someone “brings to the table” or a quality about them

    To respect – to show kind regard for what someone wishes or believes in, even if is not same as your own

    3.) I’m not sure how to exactly answer this one… I am liked by many… but I prefer small tight close knit group. But I am still good to everyone – not to just be liked – that’s just how am. You don’t know what someone goes through … but to my close friends – we are family ❤️ so this is a weird one to answer

    4.) this one is my favorite question … lol… but you would have to meet me to understand anything I would say… kinda like a photograph not capturing the true essence – neither do words ✌️
