And then again, today...

Well, today I realise just how much power I have over some people, and how easy it could be to abuse the power.  Actually, I think the word is trust.  Power and trust seem to me to be the same thing.

Now, I am nothing particularly amazing, but, I admit to being charismatic.  I don't really completely understand charisma, but, I usually can get people to come around to my way of thinking without really trying.... which is creepy.

I am in a position of trust, and/or power.  And in this I use my charisma for good.  I get people to do the right thing to benefit themselves.

But it would be really easy to do the wrong thing, and get people to do something to benefit me.... I could easily take advantage of others.  I can always see an end-game, and often, I see the possibilities of how things could be manipulated.  I guess having a huge IQ comes in negatively at times too, as I can see things several steps ahead.  Life is far too much like chess sometimes. 

However, I am happy to say that I err on the side of caution, and I don't ever want to manipulate someone into anything.  Well.... I don't want to hurt anyone.  I may carry on manipulating for good....
