I think that's kind of a baseless assumption. How can you assume that someone can't be a responsible adult simply for being awkward. Also Devon Palmer, the guy in the video started a brand not long ago and his merch gets sold out within minutes of releasing. I don't know, there's a possibility he's good at running a business 🤷♀️.
Mainly due to the nature of other people around them, not their own but the way people respond to it. Well, I figure if being awkward in this way was reasonably optimal for leadership, we'd see a lot more of that outside of films. I usually see the opposite, and instead people capable of controlling their situations, mitigating awkwardness.
Well, I was formerly an awkward type. I might still be -- some remnants are bound to linger. But I found it ill-suited for roles of great responsibility, like being a lead engineer at my work. I had to get over it for some reason, and maybe I lost some cuteness and youthfulness along the way. But I see that requirement as something difficult to escape. An awkward person is usually swayed by their situations. The charm is partially due to a lack of control over it. And I think society demands when we are in charge of other people, even if we don't want this responsibility, to at least act like we're not swept by the tides... but can control them instead.
I think society needs to stop being so demanding. There are many well known geniuses, in their field, who are/were known for being socially awkward. Think Nikola Tesla, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Albert Einstine, Bjork, Van Gogh and the list goes on. Being swept up "by the tide" or by constant stimuli isn't always a bad thing. I'd argue that it makes you more creative. I think quirky, socially awkward people make brilliant inventors, artists, composers, scientists, writers and can excell in fields that requires one to be creative. Heck, even being a parent requires a lot of creativity.
by the way, how 'Einstein' of me to spell Albert Einstein's name wrong 😅.
Geniuses I can understand, and they can be most awkward. I have no lack of experience with that. But they're usually solo, or close. Our society is not such that you sit an Einstein down at the corner of a social meeting and people flock to him. Instead, it's usually the case that the few who flock to him do so out of pity (when he hardly needs it). There is a whole different ordeal on the social side of the spectrum -- navigating that can be as complicated as quantum physics. And the awkward ones might be skewed towards the analogical quantum physics but horrid at the social side. That takes its toll within society as it is shaped now. It presents itself around us every day. There are no posters of Einsteinian types. There are good-looking people: athletes, models, film stars. And there are rarely few executives with the exception of a Musk who went the entrepreneur route (and I don't think he's really that socially awkward) leading these things.
Oh wait, nvm it’s “friend sandwhich” guy🤦🏻♂️😅
Oh wait nvm, it is the same guy.
Yep, it's the same guy. This video is both cringy and amazing. So, as an autist, can you relate to this one as well: www.instagram.com/.../?igshid=apvsmovx6gp5 I personally can. Not specifically for the super bowl but this is me, in the mirror, preparing for every human interaction 🥲.
Not really, I’ve never been the one to prep in the mirror for interaction. I think that’s more of an introvert thing, and I’m moving closer towards omnivert. I can handle myself fine in some situations, but others I’m terribly awkward about it.😅

I think he's acting a bit in this video, but I don't think it's completely a persona.
For Devon Palmer, yes 🥺💕.
