In English, they say: ‘ Never meet your heroes ‘, because it might be a sign against your idol to actually meet. Do you think this is true and have you ever experienced it?

Yes, it is true — to a certain extent — and I have already experienced it.

I had a number of ‘ intellectual heros ‘ that I had afterwards as a professor of teaching and/or I met in some way.My somewhat naive 18-year-old himself had the idea that it was almost super people. That didn’t turn out to be so.

It was clear that they had a tremendous knowledge within their field of expertise, but were not necessarily equally well developed elsewhere.Often they even said very stupid things about this.

In other words, they are also just people.People who have emerged over several decades are experts, but they also have weaknesses.

However, I would not say that it was disappointing.Rather on the contrary. When you meet your ‘ heroes ‘, you just get a fuller picture of them where you have been given a very unilateral image until then, and you can see that they may not differ so much from yourself.

It is based on the fact that people often make an image of someone that is totally unrealistic. This is called Aak fed by media that selectively show things from someone.

This can only prevent it from falling, because people always have mistakes, so they cannot meet a perfect image that you can make of them.

This also applies to other things like Paris.There are many Asians who literally get sick when they go to Paris, because they have such an impossible picture of the city that it is extremely disappointing.

I am not so of the hero worship, but I have a lot of people in my life who I particularly liked to be able to meet in real.

One of the nicest celebrities I have experienced is Harry Sacksioni.Indeed, he is a complete anti-hero in every respect. But in a very positive way.

During his performances it is a ‘ very ordinary boy with guitar ‘ who happens to be on stage, but the best thing is after the performances.A friend of mine had pointed out to me that after his performances is usually an ‘ after party ‘, where he comes back in the hall-when most people are already away-and sits on the edge of the stage and requests songs, guitar riffs arises and just socialize with the Me Travelling rushes. Look, just this kind of thing makes someone a ‘ hero ‘ to me.

One of the funniest things I found when I was working for a year in a team what stood ‘ behind ‘ someone who was considered by many to be their authority, their hero.

They had the idea that I almost had to live in heaven to be so close to their hero and to be able to hear constant wise from his mouth.

But when you give someone backstage, completely nervous, just before he takes the stage, your donators are well aware that those ‘ heroes ‘ are very ordinary people.And luckily though.

Actually I have no heroes.People are very rich creatures: you can view someone under all sorts of angles, and see something different each time. So We never know who someone really is: you can never lock him/her up in a definition. That also applies to ourselves; We do not know who we are ourselves in the sense where you know a theorem. Exhaustieve knowledge of a human being is impossible. If you make someone a hero, close it briefly: the person is lined with a number of attributes (which he or she might have, and maybe not, or not to the extent where you think). If it turns out that this picture is not correct, the bubble flips. There was no hero, there was just a man.

I myself don’t really have one specific hero, there are several people in which I see a real hero since I met them, but on the internet there are also heroes, of which I have not met yet

To begin, one has to determine what is known under “Hero” or hero.

When you imagine a hero as a book or a movie, it is in most cases against it.Your hero is an ordinary man just like everyone else, is only elevated to hero status by the character he plays and with the help of superpowers are only ingenious technical samples in the imaging.

A hero, however, as a person to look up to, such as a scientist, a politician or so, can give an even greater incentive to take that person as an example and to believe more in themselves and to rise to greater heights.

Own experience?Yes, for sure, both in the political and the artistic world.

Not met yet

It certainly can, but it does not.The well-known people I met were generally all very nice and fun, but I also know stories of BN-ers who are not so nice.

It is so that we tend to place our idols on a pedestal and forget that it is people of flesh and blood, just like us.In the media only one side of them is highlighted, but just like ‘ the ordinary man ‘ they also have just a character, they are also sometimes cranky and they feel sick, weak, nauseous too. In addition, fans tend to go terribly over people’s boundaries and find that they have ‘ right ‘ there, because they still buy your music, go to your concerts, etc.

So in short: yes, if you place your idol on a pedestal and forget that he/she is also just a human being, then it can sometimes come against if you actually meet the person.If you keep in mind that it is also just a human being, that you approach the person in question with respect, then it is generally fun.

The true comes automatically on your path, searching suffers from disillusions.
