    "egoistic: not connected to society. think people wont miss you."

    One comment - in my case its "know people won't miss you"

    I have all the proof I need.

    Anomic - goes well with BDP.

    Also, sometimes it's a mix of things. It's not so simple. Honestly, I find myself in a, b, c. There's another caregory I guess, the "no strenght anymore". That can go all of the above.

    there are more categories but these are the ones that durkheim came up with. this is really outdated but i was interested to see what people have to say and also had to do it for school. i might do one of the others at some point...

    some will miss me, some won't, the ones that will miss me, some will get over it some others won't. But that said doesn't bother me if i am missed or not. Category?

    do you feel free or restricted? otherwise probably egoistic. some of these are hard to place yourself but you have to look at yourself pretty hard. the last time this was researched it was done on dead people

    sometimes restricted, sometimes free all depends on how i feel and what i want/would to do

    nope, then i would not be egotistic, if anything societies rules are too lenient for certain situations.

    you wouldn't be any of the others

    egoistic is the most fitting
