Quite an intriguing experiment Steve. Thanks for letting us participate. (you're like awesome, man
I found this aspect of your results most interesting:
Whatís really unsettling about this ó the most disturbing part of all ó is that when I look at this list, Iím forced to admit itís more accurate than anything I could have written myself. Each person only submitted a few words, but the final result represents the collective beliefs of 1,101 people. Itís like everyone held a piece to the puzzle, and when all those pieces were assembled, the final picture is unbelievably close to the real me.
I think this phenomenon speaks to your success at portraying your authentic self in your writing (with each participant picking up on the three pieces of Steve that most resonate with them), and am curious why you characterize it as disturbing?
