Writing in Third Person

He was frequently asked why he wrote his blogs in the third person. Some found it amusing, others deemed it a sign of narcissism; some considered it lack of ownership of his thoughts, while others dismissed it as stupidity. Rather than the question, he was always more interested in the intent of the person asking the question. He never gave an answer to anyone though; at least not a true one.

He had always wanted to see himself out of his own eyes. He believed that by developing an ability and a willingness to see oneself from a 3rd person perspective, allows one to learn wisely about human behavior.

Writing in the third person allowed him to focus on how others ‘could’ perceive him. Though he was always reflective, writing in such manner allowed him to draw attention to his external self, withdrawn from the emotions of the internal self.
