tats and piercings won't stop you from getting jobs you want under this rule.
It is not a rule like that, you cannot pin it down to a certain population or idea. It is not restrictive to one medium and is only exclusive to whatever it is you are applying it to at the time. Yes it absolutely closes doors for you and if you or anyone believe otherwise then you are not being honest with yourselves and not taking a step back and really looking at it.
that is any given population. its not the body changes that stop people from doing something, it will be what they put into it with a large serving of being in the right spot at the right time.
That is what you believe and it is true for you. I stated what I have come to find in my experience.
As far as the ten percent rule goes you are correct it can apply to all things in life not just this. Which I never said it did. Maybe I am not explaining it the way it should be explained.
Let me try again. You know how a lot of people hate wealthy people. It seems as if their go to claim for hating them is that they "had to step on someone to get that wealthy, steal from their workers and never pay taxes..." while this is true in some cases the majority of rich and wealthy people in the US at least got to where they are by hard work and determination. Mom and pop shops or a lawyer and a doctor who are married and save up. What people are thinking is a rampant problem of the wealthy getting over on people is actually about 10%.
10% of politicians are not criminals in their own right
10% of dogs that bite or have behavioral issues are actually bad dogs
10% of people without musculoskeletal problems, arthritis or other sickness will not see overall results from doing squats.
10% of people who come into severe contact with nitroglycerin trans-dermal patches on dogs admitted to the ER will not instantly pass out.
So it really means that in anything where the majority of whatever it is that is being measured, looked at, tested or thought (or even popular beliefs... remember stereotypes are stereotypes because there is a little truth to them), there will always be a minority (~10%) that do not fit the rules or observations of the majority. Of course you also have to take into consideration that obviously this does not come into play in certain situations.
As far as science knows the sun is not 10% cold.
Cutting a persons head completely off... 10% of people do not survive that.
I have an ex who is into all that shit. She has the giant ear holes, and got into the tattoo scene and is all inked up now. She basically hops around from shop to shop for work. The second she steps into the real world to get a job nobody will touch her. The places she can get into give her all these strict rules about taking stuff out and covering up the ink. Then all she does is bitch, gets frustrated there and leaves.
Me, I have a giant ICP tattoo on my forearm. Like, the whole fucking forearm. Whatever, I got it in 92 when I still thought that shit was funny and even though I dont bother with them anymore I dont regret it because I saw a million shows, met a ton of cool people, and its just a representation of that time of my life. I used to have hoop and ball earrings I gauged up to 12s and that was the extent of my piercings. Ive always had dealership jobs and I regularly wear a shirt and tie. I dress really sharp at work, from my shoes, belt, watch, whatever. I thought the earrings helped me pop but one day it was just "yknow Im 30 now fuck this" and took em out and never put the back in. Youll try to hang onto that stuff for the "cool factor" or "eternal youth" or whatever, and then one day you decide to grow up and get paid. Some people are blessed with that dream job you can do whatever the fuck you want. Amusingly enough however Im working at the 5th largest Honda dealer in the US, and when you look at the sales floor the non-inked people are the minority around here. Times are a-changing. But I do not see stretched ears outside of late night 7-11 beer runs on the wastrels buying Parliment lights.
^This. Put very well.
