I have issues acknowledging authority. I never had anyone who was in that position when I was growing up, and I knew they could do nothing to me that I cared about. I spent most of school in detention, Saturday school, summer school... "alternative" school. And then just not going at all. I've always been extremely defiant. Part of it, I think, was because it was the only way I got attention. The other part is that I wasn't planning to live long enough to deal with any consequences (still here though!) Now, I have problems in the workplace. I try, but I find it incredibly difficult to allow anyone to have authority over me.
Though... I'm very much attracted to people in positions of authority haha.
