Personality Test – Two Islands

There are two neighboring islands. In the first one live two men: an uncivilized savage and a civilized man. In the other island there are several people, among them a girl who is in love and has a relationship with the civilized man. The girl wants to go to the opposite island to meet her lover. She asks the only boatman of the island how much he wants to take her there. The boatman says that he does not want money and he will take her to the other island if she is naked in the boat. The girl is shocked… not knowing what to do she goes to the wise man of the island to ask for help. He listens to her story with attention and gives the following advice: “Do what your heart tells you, my child…” So the girl decides to accept the proposal of the boatman in order to meet her beloved man. So, they go to the other island. But when they arrive, the savage is on the seafront and gets crazy at the sight of the naked woman so he rapes her… At the same moment the civilized man comes and sees the scene. He goes mad and tells the girl that he does not want her anymore and she must leave immediately.

Evaluate the 5 characters of the story (savage, civilized man, girl, boatman, wise man) from the best to the worst, so that the number 1 is the character that you believe to be the best person of the story and the 5th is the worst of all.

Real Stories from the World #2,546,899,002 – The Scientific Method Applied to Social Troubleshooting: Tell Them You’re Malaysian

“Oh you’re going to Singapore!  Good country.  Very strict, but really clean!

Tell them you’re Malaysian.  Indonesians look up to Filipinos but Singaporeans look down on Filipinos. Malaysians shop at Singapore so people there look up to them. Just tell them you’re Malaysian.”


Purpose (Objective): To visit Singapore, a country that is supposedly discriminatory towards Filipinos, with minimal shit-treatment.
 Socio-economics, history, and current events.
Hypothesis (Method): In a society that has a diverse array of perceptions associated with tangible and audible elements with underlying tones of prejudice and self-projections, a misdirection of facts could lead to desired outcome.
In this case – Use the race card.
Experiment: We told people we were Malaysian.

Analysis (Results):
External – Success.
Internal – Kind of an annoying hassle, but if it works.  It works.

Conclusion: Since racial bias is based on class discrimination (rooting from history and colonialism), it also serves to be aware of the common populational denominations in certain geographical areas for individuals to know which cards to use and how to use them depending on goals and objectives.  Developing a particular set of skills composed of wits and a detached awareness for effective social troubleshooting using scientific and behavioral mathematical methods in order to attain goals and objectives proved to be beneficial.  It also helps to know people who have, at least, a general idea of socio-political behaviors that does not sit behind rose-colored glasses.

Either way, my mother and I found that it was a case of: Objective Met.  Problem Solved.

Note: It was very common for Filipinos to be in high, white-collar, professional positions in Indonesia – known as “expats.”  It was very, and still is, very common for Filipinos to be in low blue-collar professions in Singapore.  

Personal accumulated knowledge (by North American perspectives):
I can pass for Filipino, Malaysian, Mexican, and Native (First Nations).
Occasionally, I have been mistaken for Vietnamese, Chinese, Cambodian, East Indian, and “mixed with something white.”
In places where there’s overt or covert discrimination towards Mexicans, I would be Filipino.
In places where there’s overt or covert discrimination towards Asians, I would be Mexican or Native.
In places where there’s overt or covert discrimination towards people who are not white, I would be “mixed with something White.”

Side-note conclusion: Fail, Michael Jackson.  Fail.

…directed by Luc Besson (Paris, France)

““Every cell knows and talks to every other cell. They exchange a thousand bits of information between themselves per second. Cells join together forming a joint web of communication, which in turn forms matter. Cells get together, take on one form, deform, reform — makes no difference, they’re all the same. Humans consider themselves unique, so they’ve rooted their whole theory of existence on their uniqueness. “One” is their unit of “measure” — but its not. All social systems we’ve put into place are a mere sketch: “one plus one equals two”, that’s all we’ve learned, but one plus one has never equaled two — there are in fact no numbers and no letters, we’ve codified our existence to bring it down to human size, to make it comprehensible, we’ve created a scale so we can forget its unfathomable scale.”

Real Stories from the World #2,788,999,104 – Natural Selection Vs Selective Breeding: Chapter 2

Natural Selection
Natural selection is the gradual process by which heritable biological traits become either more or less common in a population as a function of the effect of inherited traits on the differential reproductive success of organisms interacting with their environment.  It is a key mechanism of evolution.  The term “natural selection” was popularised by Charles Darwin, who intended it to be compared with artificial selection, now more commonly referred to as selective breeding.

Selective Breeding
Selective breeding (also called artificial selection) is the process by which humans breed other animals and plants for particular traits.

2. (of a person’s or a person’s behavior) insincere or affected


“I was so lucky!  I was a member of a choir and we toured all over Asia and then I met him.

But people are talking I think…because he’s 24 years older (and he’s of a different race).
But I don’t give a shit.”


Conclusion: Natural Selection ❤
