Crushes

I noticed that I shift my interests somewhat depending on who I have a crush on. With my last SO, I shifted more toward science and hard-core atheism, with the cute coworker I picked up better personal grooming habits, with the cute activist I seem to be being more hard core about my vegetarianism. I was just noticing how much of an impact who I have a crush on has on my behavior.

Without the influence of the activist for instance, I probably wouldn't have actually said anything about the atkins diet, even though I would have still felt it was wrong.

That's an interesting point. I think we all are influenced to some extent or another by our friend's interests. I would be that influence is even greater when the person is someone we have a crush on, or are in a relationship with. I see this in my own life, and particularly with music. My music taste will fluctuate quite a bit based on my friend's and partner's taste.

Well it's only good when you assimilate traits you want.

I mean just think of the borg had tried assimiliating the decadent pleasure palaces, would they have been able to continue their quest to assimilate the rest of known space?

I think we all do this to some extent.

one thing I've noticed over time is that I'm more comfortable openly disagreeing with an SO or crush than I used to be... even though I am still influenced by their preferences as well.
