My personal classification of a 'true landmarkian' is one who has allowed such a huge part of their conscience to be shut down, devalued, or silenced that they no longer care who they use, manipulate, or walk on to reach the goals they have set for themselves in accordance with landmarkian doctrines and measures of success.
These standards and expectations are typically materialistic, egocentric, and unrealistically ambitious. Basically, a true landmarkian would sell out their grandmother to get what they want for themselves personally, and even more so for the demands landmark places on them.
The non-real landmarkian will sooner or later begin to feel remorse and disgust for selling out their grandmother, and themselves.
You're also describing many in the corporate world. I'm thinking Gecko from the movie, Wall Street. No wonder Landmark is so successful - they've found the materialistic obsession our CULTure holds so dear and gives it a mighty push forward.
Jack, I think the word "commit" through up a flag for me because I never heard her speak that way before. I don't want to leap to conclusions, that won't help anything, but I don't want to be naive, either. Sometimes it seems like I'm walking a very fine line these days with her. I also think she may be frustrated at this point because every recent attempt to get staff to attend an introductory meeting has failed. I have to leave for work soon, so I can't get into my conversation with her about it earlier this month. Later, I will give a description. I'd like to get everyone's take on it, and my response.
Changes in behaviour are good indicators. I think as ON2 LF suggests, the change in behaviour will be strongly goal oriented. There's no denying that a large part of our way of life is ME, ME, ME and organisations like Landmark justify this even further. I believe there's a kind of morbid hope that sooner or later these individuals will explode like over-inflated balloons! :!:
