While happily reading along in Chinese history today, I read of someone described as an "individualist, cynic..." etc.
Do individualists tend to be cynical, or do cynics tend to be individualists, or both?
I don't want anyone to get mad at me (which should prove I'm not either of those), so let me hurry to say this question doesn't imply anything negative about either cynicism or individualism. The world and indeed my own family is much richer with both traits! It just seems that those blessed with one seem blessed with the other.
What do you think?
