Are You as Responsible as You Want to Be? Questions to consider

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s tempting to be irresponsible. As Freud would term it, to let your id reign. For example, if you work as little as you can get away with, there’s more time for play, for example playing or watching sports or video games. And irresponsible play can be more fun: risky sex, mind-altering drugs, treating the highway like a speedway. Indeed, I’ve noticed an increase in the number of cars darting in and out of lanes at a zillion miles an hour.

Yet I want to risk being a spoil-sport, like the dour, finger-wagging father or cleric often portrayed in the media: from The Scarlet Letter’s Reverend Dimmesdale to the eponymous father in The Great Santini to Game of Thrones’ Tywin Lannister.

My Psychology Today article today makes the case for the primacy of responsibility and then asks you questions to help you decide if you’re as responsible as you’d like to be.
