Before you do anything else, take the quiz:
I was recently thinking about the difference between the world view of alienating parents and “normal” parents. By normal I mean me. So, differences between how I view the world and how I suspect alienating parents view the world. The basic questions today are “Do you generally think others are good or bad?” and “Do you generally blame others or take responsibility?”
An Alienating Parent’s World View
Alienating parents often see the world as very black and white. Alienating parents view the other parent as all bad and no good. Thus an alienating parent might “protect” their children from the other “bad” parent. In addition to seeing others as bad, an alienating parent is likely to not take responsibility for his or her actions. Alienating parents are likely to blame others (the bad people) for bad things that happen and accept responsibility only for the good things (or view anything they do as good, even if its bad).
Thus, if you score well on the Quiz: How Do You View Others, then you are less likely to be an alienating parent. If you score low on the quiz, then maybe you have high alienation potential. My guess is that if you actually took the quiz that your alienation potential is low. Someone should probably make a comprehensive quiz to measure alienation potential.
Just in case you think Internet quizzes tell you about real life and your life–THERE IS NO SCIENCE BEHIND ANY OF THIS! At least no valid science. I just made it all up. I did have fun thinking about it and maybe these thoughts have some value to you. Or maybe you think I’m an asshole like the rest of the world. One thing I am sure of is that self-reflection is very important. It might be true that there are some bad people out there. But, as illustrated by these memes, if you think there are mostly bad people out there, either you’re the bitch/asshole, or else you need to seriously examine your life and your perspective on the world.
