> I know many of us here feel like we don't belong anywhere, but I have a strange problem, I think in black and white, like I believe nothing is absolutely right or wrong, the thing is that I find myself rolepalying often and just play along where ever I am, like when people ask me what religion I belong to I don't know what to say, cause I really don't know, I just don't know, I answer them anyway, bcoz if I say I don't know, they'ed think I am nuts, but at the back of my mind I feel guilty for not being genuine. I know this sounds confusing and I am sorry, but can anyone help me out here.

= I'd say that it's because fours can usually see both sides of everything. In small matters, perhaps, we do tend to go along with whoever is around us(sometimes to just avoid conflict, as well), but in cases where we are very passionate about a certain belief we will be very stubborn and inmovable from it.

I also think the playing along is an attempt to fade into the tapestry of life and feel accepted. I'd describe it as mostly thinking in gray which switches to black and white extremes according to the degree of personal passion involved.
