Is it not so? We adjust. At least sometimes, and if we are honest sometimes more often. You are not pretending you. I did not mean you with it.
Basically, I can only speak of myself. I disguise myself in certain situations. When and how? That I will not tell. Everyone else knows the situations in which I am not myself.
