Yesterday, I learned two important things about deportment.
The first relates to the notion of balance & consistancy. Both of those skills require patience. I do not have patience. I need to practice patience. I need to force myself into situations where I need to wait. And I need to wait without playing mind games.
The second relates to how others perceive you. Deportment requires consistency. When you are tired is shows & you lake consistency. This points to a biological aspect of deportment which I think may be very important.
