EF #6: Alter-Ego

Well, well, this one is the hardest of BEC’s Challenge Post. It is about Alter-Ego. Duh! โ“
I browsed some sources on the web and got some explanations. But the further I read, the more I saw Alter-Ego as something bad, a psychological disorder just like Bipolar :mrgreen: So I guess I would just make it simple here, to see Alter-Ego just as the other side of me which only a few people know. Alter-Ego is believed as someone in contrary, as simple as that.

In some movies I’ve watched, we could find the examples of Alter-Ego in Black Swan movie, where the Black Swan is actually Nina Sayers’s Alter-Ego. Or in Pretty Little Liars’ serial, where Vivian is Alison DiLaurentis’ Alter-Ego. When we watched them, they might seem, and we might think like they’re twins, but actually the other character is the Alter-Ego.

So, who is my Alter-Ego?
I don’t even know!! :mrgreen: LOL. But some days ago, this young man put a comment on my prior post which said that if he compared that post with this post, it seems like written by two different people โ“ I don’t think it is, though. But maybe because the tone of the sentences are different so he thought that way ๐Ÿ˜›

Hmmm… for me siiih, this blog itself is my own Alter-Ego. Nadcissism is Nadia Khaerunnisa’s Alter-Ego ๐Ÿ™„ Is it? Yes, It is. Because most of the posts here are written in a different tone with the one I say it verbally. If you read about The Author above, I call myself as a silent person or an introvert, because I am. But I don’t write like one, maybe, I’m not sure ๐Ÿ˜†

Oya, I also said there that I could be nastily crazy with those who are lovely. By this means, they are the people in my inner circle, like my family, and my besties. And yes, I’m so silly, goofy, or ridiculous, whatever you might call it. Well, I don’t think this could be categorized as Alter-Ego or not, maybe just because I’m awkward with new person :\
But there’s the other one thing, my mom always said that I could turn into a witch when I’m mad. Like really really mad ๐Ÿ‘ฟ Why witch? Maybe because I’m that bad!

  1. Alter ego does imply a negative side. You didn’t get it wrong. By the way, I find it interesting that a man actually paid attention and compared your posts! I could understand if he were your husband or fiancรฉ or boyfriend (I don’t know how long you’ve been married). Anyway, good job on having the post up. I haven’t even thought about it! I have been quite busy this week on my job search.

  2. Quite agree when you say that this blog is your alter ego. In fact, I think every writer’s alter ego is his/her writing. Every writer that I had met must have some differences in their way of speaking compared to their writing style and tone, and mostly that has made me quite surprised. That’s why I really really want to meet all of you, to know whether you bloggers have some ‘differences’ too :hihi.

  3. It’s easy to ‘blame’ our blog as our alter ego because we tend to write something with thoughts/emotion/inner that often can not be display on our daily-character.
    That thoughts/emotion/inner that has been there deep in ourselves. We express them without knowing, at the same time it is you and it is not you.
