Naughty people are creative...........

Do you know naughty people are more creative? They think and respond faster!

The logical type of people who use their left brain only, seldom go out of the way to create unnecessary fun. They think playing fun and being naughty isn't right. They go by the rules, they stick to regulations and always behave well. Logically they are right.

However those who are the playful and the naughty types, go beyond their logical senses. They break rules and sometimes disregard regulations. Besides their logical mind, they utilise the creative thought which is from the right brain. You can say... they think outside the box.

When I was a little child I was naughty. Today I'm still naughty and playful as ever, but all my naughtiness and playfulness are the clean and humorous types, and are harmless to others. Without these special ingredients and substances in me, I won't have been more of a creative person. And if I am not a creative man, I'm sure I would have nothing to write everyday for you readers to read and to laugh. True or not?

Hi 6:43

Thank you for reading so early in the morning while I was still in my dream world.

You are totally right and I can't denial over your search. However being a left brain thinker like you, u will forever think logical and will follow rules and regulations.

Whereas, I always think with my right and left brains together. Yes! Naughty is unpleasant but I will attempt to change this naughtiness into something acceptable and laughable.
Otherwise whoever you are, you might not even be bother or interested to read my post today. I still have some cheekiness and playfulness in my post to capture many readers. Most important I didn't teach you to be bad but rather to encourage you to do well and have a happier day. Smile lah!

Robert Foo said...

Hi 6:43,

Forgotten to tell you. Your brain is slower than mine. I'm sure it took you more than 5 minutes to write your comment with those search details gathered. I took less than two minutes to reply your comment. Logical people are less creative.

Tsk Tsk self proclaimed but misleading the majority,

I feel responsible to correct your misleading way of informing the readers. Without proper research and self proclaimed as wise, you are actually misleading many people. Apart from your age which many have reach maturity, you only conditioned your mind that you are superior but in actual fact you are still inferior.

By the way what is your credentials? What do you major in your academic professionalism?

When you took less than 2 mins to reply, you are actually reacting to the comment at the first reading.

You are not responding intelligently to the posted comment by anonymous at 0641.

Perhaps it will take you couple of hours to arrive with an intelligent answer. (and with due respect to you especially, I hope with my wishful mind that you will not take many days nor months nor even years to realize the message that the readers trying to convey to you)

Dear anon 3:03;

Thank you for your comment. I feel I also must append and correct what Robert has written.

When someone says they are right or left-brain it's really just a metaphor for a cognitive style.

Without a doubt the popular left and right division of the brain is an over-simplification. For example, research is showing that musical, artistic and intuitive thinking can't be thought of as strictly lateralised, or exclusively of the right hemisphere.

We know with confidence that basic language processes are predominantly controlled by the left hemisphere, and spatial cognition like navigation or face recognition are coordinated by the right hemisphere. But when it comes to the question of ability, both hemispheres work in concert with each other.

Every single cognitive function has right hemisphere and left hemisphere components. To avoid competition between the two halves of the brain there is a division of labour between the left and the right.

Neurologist Roger Sperry won a Nobel Prize for demonstrating that the right and left hemispheres play distinct but complimentary roles in adult brains. He looked at patients who had had a callosotomy — where the two hemispheres of the brain are separated by severing the corpus callosum. Their brain is effectively 'split' in two. This procedure, another type of hemispherectomy, is sometimes performed on/in people with severe epilepsy, to stop the transmission of seizures between the left and right halves.

The split brain patients sat directly in front of a screen onto which, in essence, pictures or words were flashed on either side so that they were only processed by one half of the patients' brain. When a word was flashed on the left hand side, the patient couldn't say what they'd seen because their non-verbal right hemisphere was left to make sense of the word alone, without the help of its verbal left companion. However, if they were asked to pick up an object behind a screen in front of them with their left hand related to what was on the screen, they picked up the correct object. This indicated that their right brain had in fact "seen" the object and directed their left hand correctly - it just couldn't help them say what they'd seen.

You should contemplate a bit on two separate (though related) matters:

1. responsibility: ie. responding to society as you are now


2. power: that every individual has an impact. even those not considered 'powerful' impact those around them in all kinds of large and small ways, hence we all have far more power than we may have imagined.

The two can overlap, and you've already gotten into the overlapping in your blog. I think that recognizing your power makes you more responsive, more able, thus more responsible.

The general gist is that 90% of the people in this world do not see the bars of their cage. They do not want to be freed etc. The 10% out there DO, and more's the pity because there's a happiness-in-ignorance that will forever be denied to them because of it. And now, for the really screwed up part: YOU are responsible for the other 90%.

The phrasing and analogy is a bit clumsy with just what is responsibility, but the truth is there's LOTS of different bars in society, and I can only see some of 'em, and I'm never going to get all the way through even one but I can pick one as my time and energy allows and file away best I can.

I think once you see somebody is misleading the majority, you have some responsibility to do something about it. It's just not even a choice to me: you can't unsee the bars of the cage, and I know I couldn't live with myself just pacing about inside the cage: I don't think one person can save the world, but perhaps he or she can save another person. Or a group of people.

Hi Robert,

Blogging is an increasingly popular method for people to express their thoughts and opinions. However, in a professional setting, it is especially important for bloggers to understand the nature of liability for online postings.

Robert, you are personally responsible for your posts. Remember that what you write online will be available to anyone with internet access. Therefore, please be mindful of your readers.

You may feel inclined to rant about someone but be mindful not to insult anyone.

You may feel inclined to make off-color remarks, but be aware that posting sexually harassing, vulgar, lewd, or obscene remarks or material is strictly prohibited as a blogger.

Robert, as a blogger please provide valuable information and perspective. The purpose of blogging is to enhance community interaction. So, use accurate information.

And most important, Robert, don't tell secrets. Respecting others' privacy is key to successful blogging.

Robert Foo said...

Hi everybody,

Since I'm creating so much fuss and causing more harm than good, and blogging are restricted in so many ways when I can't write with my heart, I better discontinue blogging. Though my intention was meant to be sincere and for the benefit of others. Sorry if I had offended you people up there. I won't be writing any more.

Anonymous said...


Your environment and circumstances influence who you are but you are totally responsible for who you become. Undoubtedly, you can make a sound argument that you can't write with your heart but blaming, justifying and complaining will get you nowhere.

Stop polishing these excuses and presenting them as the reason why you won't be writing any more. The harsh truth is that you have not yet accepted 100% responsibility for your life.

Accepting personal responsibility is recognizing that the Calvary isn’t coming. While you may and will need the help of others to sympathize with you, the onus is on you to orchestrate your own rescue. As they say, “If it’s to be, it’s up to you!”

Just imagine an athlete at the Olympics standing at the start of their event worrying about what happened in the competition two months ago, what went wrong in practice last week or what the coach said to them yesterday. They are there, at the start knowing fully well that their performance in the race is totally within their control… today… in this moment and is not dictated by some event that happened in the past.

You have to let go of your past in order to effectively design your future. Stop using self pity. You are not in the old folks home yet, sir.

To resign yourself to your current situation means that you have determined that there is no hope for improvement. To accept it means that you acknowledge that this is your starting point.

Take a closer look at the word responsibility and you will notice that it is made up of two root words… RESPONSE and ABILITY. In essence, you have the ability to choose your response to any and all events that take place in your life. Highly successful people recognize this and so they take responsibility instead of blaming circumstances. They know that through free will, they can choose to take actions which will create the kind of results they desire.

Sir, setbacks and challenges are viewed as opportunities for personal development allowing them to become stronger, wiser, more knowledgeable and more skillful. Taking personal responsibility is the price you pay to achieve the greatness you are capable of.

That is why I have asked you whether have you discovered that you had a superiority complex hiding an inferiority complex?

The successful ones are affected by the same external stimuli as those who lag behind. The difference is how they respond to the stimuli. Between those two—stimulus and response, you have the power to choose how you want to live your life.

Unless you write for a good cause, you will never give up easily.

The number one reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have gotten.

5 reasons why bloggers quit blogging

Wan said...

To all the Robots out there,
If you disagree with the content of this blog and feel uncomfortable reading it, then STOP coming by.
Why create so much fuss and some of your comments really irritate me.
Everyone is responsible for their well-being and we can judge what is good and what is bad for us, and we know when it is a joke and when it is a serious matter.
Stop here if you don't feel good here....

Wan said...

Hey Robert,
Keep up with your wisdom sharing.
We know how to judge for ourselves.
Your blog brought much smiles and happy hearts...
Thanks, Robert!

I think you are having the Princess syndrome i.e. every post you write to be perfect. Beautiful. Appealing. Worthy of applause. With all your readers gathered at your feet.

Obviously, you don’t want to be known as someone that is weak and gives up. The only time you fail is when you give up. Wanna admit that you fail in blogging, sir?

Being a sales person, don’t sell yourself short. The chance of mastering something the first time you do it is almost non-existent. Everything takes time to learn and you will make mistakes. Learn from them.

Arguably the best basketball player of all time. He attributes his success to all his failures. He just never gave up even when he knew he had missed over 300 shots and had missed the winning shot of the game many times. Every time he got knocked down he got back up again.

The only valid excuse you have to give up is if you are dead. As long as you are alive (and healthy and free) you have the choice to keep trying until you finally succeed.

Anonymous said...


What I meant the best basketball player is Michael Jordan.

Sir, do you know that Muhammad Ali is one of the best boxers the world has ever known? He suffered only 5 losses while having 56 wins and was the first boxer to win the lineal heavyweight championship three times. This is a guy who literally knows how to get knocked down and get back up.

And sir, have you seen the movie “The Pursuit of Happiness”? It is based on the life story of Chris Gardener, a man who went for the lowest of the lows in an environment where most people would give up (no money, no job) to the highest of the highs (A millionaire with his own investment firm). If you ever think about giving up, watch this movie!

I’m pretty sure you have heard of the rapper Kanye West. Read his story. He is a big inspiration for me and proves that you can go from having very little to being among the most famous and respected people in the world.

Nelson Mandela campaigned for justice and freedom in his South Africa. Spent 20 years in jail for his opposition to apartheid. On release he healed the wounds of apartheid by his magnanimous attitude toward his former political enemies.

Sir, very often when you feel like you want to give up and you are about to give up you are so close to making a huge break-thru.

Seth Godin has written an awesome book about this called “The Dip” – a riveting read that teaches that at any given time you are always just a heartbeat away from success.

Dear anon 1:22

You are a very nice person. I remembered Robert did ask you to get out of here but instead, your words are very encouraging.

I believe Robert being at the age of 65 knew what his decision is. To go back against what he has decided will reflect him as indecisive and also fickle minded.

Being a successful salesperson, he must honour his words.

Never the less, the blogging community will not miss his presence as the community is expanding very fast. Besides, it will save him time to do other worth while things such as selling and recruiting. Meanwhile, you will not need to spend additional time to correct his mistakes anymore. It is time for him to retire from blogging.

Please respect his wish and do not try to persuade him to do otherwise as he will incur more damages if he continues.

Why can't you just stop yourself from reading the comments if they irritates you?

Just read the article that Robert wrote and exclude yourself from reading the comments.

If you cannot swallow, refrain yourself from swallowing them in the first place.

By hurling such abusive comments, you are provoking disharmony in this community.

Dear August 12, 2012 1:47 PM,

If we are to weigh the damages with the good, I think you are correct.

I think Robert Foo is better at selling and recruiting rather than to blog. For his age, it is better for him to sleep earlier instead of after midnight every day.

Robert has said it is not easy for him to blog. Please give him a break. Accept his decision to quit, ok.

Think about what life would be like if you quit blogging. Think about how much time you would have. I'm pretty sure your house would still be less than perfect. I am sure you would like to think of spending more time doing something else after all you are 65 already.

One thing for sure you don't have to sit in front of the computer. You still can write in your journal instead of typing. You can write down everything you are thinking and spill out all your frustrations without worrying about censoring what you make in public.

You can read books or sleep while your gandchild is napping instead of rushing to finish a post you had in your head for a month.

You don't have to feel like the blog is taking over your life. You will start seeing your daily activities as potential blog posts instead of just enjoying what you are doing previously. You don't have to spend too much time thinking about matching the perfect picture with a post and worrying about writing what you think people will want to read instead of what you want to write.

You stop worrying about how many page views you gonna have or whether you share too much information. You don't have to stress about neglecting your family because of your blog and worry about whether or not your family is resentful of your computer time.

In a nutshell, it's definite worth to quit.

Blogging can be a great practice for writers. It forces you to write regularly and helps you discipline yourself in your craft.

It can also be a disease — a people-pleasing addiction that saps you of your creative edge. The true writer must beware of and take caution when using this marvelous tool for one reason: Writing solely for others can cost you your (writing) soul.

You may find yourself publishing just for the thrill of taking your content live for others to praise it. Blogs continue to stroke your egos.

The fact is anyone can blog. In fact, many do. But not everyone has something to say.

While writing for others isn’t necessarily bad, it can’t be primary. You must first write for yourself.

When you can do that, you may return to your blog.

Because writing for yourself releases you from the temptation to entertain.

Hi Robert,

Hi Mr Robert,

Do you really want to stop writing and discontinue this blog just because of negative comments you receive here? Just ignore the comments that make you feeling down.

Many readers out there who are reading this inspirational blog always waiting for your new entry everyday. By today, we all miss your new entry because of the naughty people entry.

I agree with your wisdom that naughty people are creative because they are doing unexpected things that ordinary people would not do.

Be proud of what you do. We will feel loss if there is no Robert Foo Wisdom of Life anymore.

Wan said...

Dear Robert,
I agree with MdKhan.
Don't just give because of the few.
There are many readers and blog followers out there waiting eagerly everyday to read your post-of-the-day.
Come on Robert...
We know you won't give up for it is your passion to write and share...
Hope to read your posting tomorrow...

Juliet said...

Y can't you all respect Mr Robert's decision? It is easier 4 u all to say don't give up.

So many times already Mr Robert want 2 give up. U all think it is easy to write to entertain? After so many years, daily some more, posting at 2400hrs punctually, choosing titles, pictures etc.

At 65, don't u all think Mr Robert deserve to rest? Where r u all this while? Just bcos u want to laugh rather than givin your opinion or hard thoughts or participate in the discussions, u all ask not to giv up?

One reason blogger frustrate is no comment after they blog. Y can't u all take few mins to giv some thoughts and ideas to him? After laughing also cannot contribute a little note in the comment column?

R u suckers for laugh rather than being a contributors? Even if don't want to contribute, where r u all when he needed your defends and supports when Mr Robert was corrected? R u all before silently agreeable with all the correction commented and then when Mr Robert did not write, started to plea don't give up?

Mr Robert, u take good rest. U have done what u need to do. Just enjoy your final years to come peacefully and have a peaceful mind. No need anymore corrections and what other people tell you what to do.

People, please don't insult a wise man's decision. A wise man like Mr Robert is not weak in making decisions. I believe his decision for not writing is not spontaneous. Besides, being a sales person he has received plenty of challenges throughout his life. Therefore people, please respect a wise man's decision. I am sure all of you want him to be remembered as a man of his own words.

Under Section 114A (of the Malaysian Evidence Act), an Internet user is deemed the publisher of any online content, unless proven otherwise.

It also makes individuals and those who administer, operate or provide space for online community forums, blogging and hosting services liable for content published through their services.

I am sure you do not want Robert to expose himself to such risk. On the lighter side, I wonder whether there is any insurance company willing to accept this risk transfer?

Dear Robert,

No matter what reason it is that you've decided to stop blogging here, I hope you'll never stop writing and never ever stop sharing enlightening views to the people around you. You have given me a lot of encouragement in the form of words to stay positive in life and I believe I am not the only one you have inspired.

A blog is suppose to be a site where every individual is free to express his/her own feelings and views of opinions. While you, Mr.Robert Foo, have chosen to share your experiences with us in a positive and naughty form. You might have created fuss to certain people; but in the meantime, you've also brought laughters and smiles to others.

The power of Internet has raised worrying concerns to parents today and the above anonymous do make a point on this. However, I think the main factor of the concern should not be on the internet nor blogs nor social networking. The concern should be on the power of words. One same sentence might be interpreted differently by two different individuals. Writers might not meant the way readers think it means. I would say that misinterpretation leads to many undesired misunderstanding. This is the reason towards importance of education and building intellectual people in the society of today's world.

My dear Robert, from failure we learn; from bad comments we grow. No one is perfect. I see negative comments as a welcoming opportunity that will guide you to be a better and smarter blogger.

If this is really going to be your last post, I want you to know that you are a Great guy and you'll always be remembered as one too. A unique one because you carry harmless playfulness & naughtiness with you. ;P

Stay Playful & Naughty & Happy & Healthy ALWAYS! ^^

Warmest Regards,
Michelle Yong

Writers write because they love to. I know that Mr. Foo is that kind of writer. Therefore, I DO NOT respect his decision to right. In fact, I ENCOURAGE him to write. Not everyone is able to survive those harsh and negative comments.

"You must first write for yourself." ~August 12, 2012 2:59 PM. Truthfully, he is writing for himself. He is writing his own thoughts and is sharing it with people. Since everyone agrees that he is at a certain age, namely 65 years young, we can certify that he has lots of experience in life. Why on earth should he not share it with us? It is up to you, the reader, to either read or ignore. Don't force others to make a decision that you should make.

If you have the same amount of experience as him, then you can argue your case, but I don't believe you do. We as his supporters believe that he should continue writing because we like the articles that he writes and the things that he says.

Come back Robert!!!
