Most people are NPCs

I have felt many people are like robots saying repeated meaningless things. It seems that I’m not alone.

How to Win by Daniel Gross is one of the most transformational video clips I have watched. He referenced and briefly introduced Kegan’s Theory of Adult Development in his talk. Similarly, he said Stage 3: Socialized Mind is like NPC.

I don’t like NPCs. I like creative, artistic, odd, and beautiful human beings. Chinese culture generally suppress you from stage 4. Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism encourage you step up to stage 5, but younger generations usually don’t care about these philosophies. That is one of the reasons I don’t like Chinese culture nor affected part of the Taiwanese culture.
