Are we two faced or more?

Monday, March 16, 2015 By , , , , , 14 comments

I was surfing Facebook and listening to Galliyan- Ankit Tiwari (all this doesn’t matter) when this question crossed my mind; Are we two faced or three or more? Sounds interesting, right? By the way, just so you know, I am not talking about human anatomy at all. This is away, far away from science. This is life, where you find two or three or any-number-of-your-choice faced people. I hope you get the drift.

Two-face from Batman
So, the story of a two faced person (not that villain from Batman) starts when he backstabs somebody and that somebody in return does his nomenclature like this. The reason for betrayal can be anything that depends upon the situation and we won’t analyze it in this article. However, in reality, absence of guts to speak or do things up front compels a person to become two faced or more.

However, there is more to it. Till now, we saw other’s perspective of somebody being two faced. Now, what if I tell you that we actually change our character according to situations?! Shocking, right? But, this is true.

Do this activity once and you will find the above notion to be true. Next time when you meet your friends or anybody in general who is not your family member just keep noticing (and remember) the way you talk and behave.

Now, when you come back home and spend time with your family over dinner or lunch (or any meal in between because other time you are busy on the internet) once again notice your behavior. Am sure you will find a change in it from the way you played yourself out to the world.

So, this far you are already two different people. You are a born actor my friend. Congratulations. Directors are looking for a chap like you. Go, catch them all.

Anyway, the final step. And, this step once done will show you the real you. Trust me, I don’t kid for free. All you need to do is find some solitude or a mask to hide behind. Best way is to create an anonymous identity on the internet, just for this activity. So, you are hidden due to it. Nobody can see you until you reveal yourself or you don’t know how to be anonymous on the internet. If it is the 2nd case, internet will help you. Best wishes!

So, once anonymous, pick any random person of any gender or your choice. Remember, this is a hard task to do because people don’t easily get in touch immediately with a stranger. But, let us assume you are successful in doing this. Now, start to chat with them. And, more importantly, read and remember what you say to them. Because when you will recall it you will realize that it was all true. You didn’t say anything to flaunt yourself or to play defensive in anyway unlike the other two scenarios above. And you will be shocked to know, but this is the real you. The person whom you behave like in the third case is you. The things that you truly believe are revealed in the third case when you are behind a mask. After all, it is rightly said, give a man a mask and he will show you who he actually is.

Is this right?

So, finally, just count the number of characters you played in total. Am sure you are smarter than a fifth grader and would be with an answer, three. Congratulations. Or in Archimedes’ style, Eureka because we have found the number of faces people have and it is three. So, next time if somebody says that there are 7 billion people in this world and 14 billion faces; correct them with 21 billion. Remember, each one has 3 faces, except for Harvey Dent, who has 5!

  2. behavior does change according to the situations and that's normal human tendency. I am not sure if we can qualify that well suited-to-situation behavior another face. That would necessarily mean it becomes a nature more than a necessity of behave in a particular fashion, sometimes, then be known as the face of a man.
    I would still like to stick to the point that with each person there are two faces- the real one and the extremely talented one- which adjust and manipulates itself as and how needed to be...:)
    No offense ..
    Regards..:)

    1. I totally understand your perspective, Monica. And it is good to see that you are making one face fixed and another one variable. And that variable face can take numerous forms. Fine. But there is a limit to the number of forms it takes in general and which is 2. And in total that makes 3 faces.

      But, anyway, I acknowledge and appreciate your theory. :)

  3. with strangers you have nothing to lose, you can be whoever you want... but when it comes to our close ones, we need to think about a lot of things before we say something to them... the fear of losing them drives us crazy...

    P.S.:Its not necessary that we show our true side to a stranger... we are more likely to show someone who we want to be rather someone who we already are...

    Think about it :-/

    PPS- Dont say "Keep Visiting O:)"

  4. So the split personality people are the honest two faced people or as said more than a few faced. Except that the others are guilty conscience split personalities with a hazardous result. Nice one.
