Conducting oneself

We all know on some level that we have multiple aspects to our personality. Different sides of us emerge at varying times, depending on a combination of circumstance and stress level.

Suppose we could see all of those sides of our personality with perfect clarity? Rather than a cacophony, what if they were instruments in a well conducted orchestra?

Now suppose that this were perfectly normal. Rather than being ruled by conflicts between internal emotional forces, what if people were able to simply draw upon those forces as needed, the way a poet draws upon a beloved memory.

I suspect that world would be a very interesting place to live. But I also suspect it might seem a bit strange and overwhelming to us ordinary neurotic humans.
