Is there anyone you look up to? Someone who you think is amazing, successful and you envy them because of it?

A little something about me...
My Korean name is Sung. Sung means "to idolize or become a hero for" That is why I am obsessed with heroism, and honor, and whatnot. I also use "hero" in my username almost everywhere.

Well, now that I got that out, Who do you Idolize? (yourself can be an option)

My heroes are my favourite composers (Rachmaninoff, Chopin, etc.) and anyone else who did good in the world.
Lumine is also my hero =P

Lumine is also my hero =P

You are my hero too =P

Hmmm well I used to idolize Spiderman (lulz) and Eric Clapton.. but as for now probably John Mayer.

I don't really believe in idols, to be honest. I'd much rather concentrate on striving to be my own idol rather than waste time trying to be somebody else. D:

No idol, but there are people I use as good examples, mostly my parents. I think you can interpret idol in different ways...

not idols per se, but there are a lot of people I look up too or am quite impressed by
Marshall Faulk is one
Former runningback for the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams
He was a great player, and a great person. he was one of the best athletes in the league, but he was not overly cocky or a showoff. He voluntarily had his salary cut in half near the end of his career so that the team had more money for other players
he was just a class act guy all around

That's too bad, I've never thought of as an idol as someone you strive to be but more of someone you can look up to for guidance if you feel you need it. That or someone who can set a good example for you that would help you in the future.

So after saying that, I don't have one peticular idols, rather a bunch of people I admire for certain things and certain messages they've given. No one can cover everything though.

Well, I can certainly understand admiring people, but I think that's totally different from idolization.

Idolization to me would lead too easily to emulation, and I'm not interested in emulating anybody.

Alexi Laiho for being the fastest guitarist currently alive, and managing to pull of this metrosexual look, maintaining his level of badass-ness.

Oh, and from PC, Im'a have to go with Nightofshadow for that post she made like, 3 days ago out of nowhere.

You took what I had in my mind and said it in a much kinder way too, thank you. Regrettably, that doesn't make you my idol. ;D

Well, as Australia up there said, I don't look up to others, I mean I accept the fact that there are plenty of others who are more successful than me, and chances are more successful then I ever will be, but I'm not going to let that allow to think of them as 'idols'. /= I usually end up looking down on people rather than looking up to them.

However, if someone does something I like, then I'll be like "Yo mah herro" as a compliment, but they still wouldn't be my hero or idol. ^_^

I idolize the webmaster of the Pokesho website, Soara-sama. He's such a good artist and gives me something to aim for. I will never stop trying to improve until I'm as good/better than him.

I kinda idolize Shinji but I feel I can relate to him more.

Not really. There's no one I really look up to these days at all. I hardly try to improve myself either. :/ I might've idolized my sister, back in the day. I used to want to be like her all the time... except without her flaws. 8D

I've never really looked up to anyone...I don't want to be like someone else; just myself D:

Well, one person who does give me inspiration is Walt Disney...even though he's dead could you say he's my idol? ^-^ He's made so many people happy even though he went bankrupt like, three times and got his ideas taken away from him more than once! Hence, I do want to achieve something like he did; doing something in the Disney Corporation is really my dream job in life. He's changed my life and I want to be part of that experience with others.<3

Freddie Mercury, plain and simple, is the biggest vocal inspiration to me that I've ever had.

If anyone, that's it.

Well, like Audy, I'm not exactly what you would call a big fan of idolization. I don't idolize people, if hardly any. And if I were to idolize someone, it'd be from my family, and maybe just a couple of people here at PC. No more, no less.

The problem with idolization comes with fangirl/fanboyness. Which can get taken too far. Not saying I haven't done it, there are times where I have become a fanboy of certain stuff, and I regretted it badly. Meh, now I know not to do that again.

In addition, the list of people I idolize are long. And I don't pick them because they're sexy, and they have a beautiful voice( some people >> ) I have various other reasons.

Nothing to do with the body, btw. Freaks. XD

Oh and, I'd rather be an idol of myself of how I am, then someone else's. Though it is a nice feeling if you are idolized.

I don't think in terms of idols either. Clones are pointless.

I idolize no-one. I do not look up to anyone. There is nobody who I know of I feel is worthy of looking up to.

There are people I admire, but don't idolize or follow.

Nope. I haven't found anyone to idolize. What about you Piggedy Pig?

Piggedy Pig: *nods*

Who?

Piggedy Pig: *points at picture of Babe*

Of course. =D
'nyway, I think I just thought of someone to idolize! Jesus.

Well I look up to my parents, but that's natural considering that they are raising me. Outside of them, I really look up to my Karate instructor. He's really cool, he's really good at what he does, and he takes his teaching job really seriously with out being serious all the time.

I`ll consider Angelina Jolie my idol. She`s so wonderful & such a great person even though she did steal Brad Pitt away from Jennifer Aniston, but whatever. xD

Narr. I be my own idol 'cause that's teh new coolness.

...

Nah, I don't really have an idol, there is one man I have a tremendous amount of respect for and do look to for inspiration at times, but I don't really wanna be like him, I just think he has a great outlook on life.

not a bad thread, I like what I see....

in terms of idols, I don't have idols, but I have influences that play parts in my life, people that give me the right push are the ones that get the longterm respect and loyalty in my life...

my parents for one, they've done a lot and are first off, still standing strong, they raised me with the right ideas and now I need to take a few more steps to enter the real adult life because the college life is not adult life, it's like the gateway more than anything.

anyone that can write a book strong enough to impact lives is respectable in my eyes, because they succeeded in keeping their legacy alive through written word.

I can keep going on about idols and whatnot.... each stage of my life had its own influences, and I'm still standing strong, if not stronger than I first was... and I know that I am going to be a good idol one day should I stay on the right path.

I idolize myself, being so young and vulnerable to the influence I need to give myself strength to succeed in my own life.Idolizing someone in my own opinion is wrong and if someone idolizes me I don't feel bad for you, but you need to look to your own achievements and/or future and see what you can over come in life and not what you can follow.

PS: This is my opinion not someone elses.

I think in my early ages... idolizing power rangers made me the exceptional kickboxer I am today. (got me a row of gold medals(8), about 5 more to go ^^)

I knew someone would make a thread like this... creepy... :paranoid:

I once heard this quote- "If a child has to look any farther than their own kitchen table to see their role models, then there's something wrong with this country." Well then, there must be something wrong with this country then, because my role models don't even live in this country. If I had to think of someone in this country, I'd say my friend Anthony.

I also have 3 of em' here. (depressing isn't it?)

All of them will probably view this post. There's two from Canada, and one from UK. And one that would have probably viewed this thread, but he LEFT! :'( (he's also from Canada)

It should be pretty obvious. Just take a wild guess. ;)

Oh God..Oh..God...You're absolutely right. I completely forgot about them..

I heard from someone the red ranger went into gay porn after he left the show O_O

xD Complately disregaurd my last post. Except for Shayla, Tommy is my hero. For those of you who didn't know he was the original green ranger. he even had his own theme..it was all like "GO GREEN RANGER..GO!!" Follwed by "DAH NAH DAH NAH NAH NAH NAH"

Much love <33

November 7th, 2007, 02:13 PM
dude... even if the red ranger converted to the purple ranger... he'd still be able to uppercut you just as hard... lol

Ugh... That's the good thing about television characters I guess. You can idolize the fictional character and not the actual actor depicting them. Green/White ranger was my favorite. I remember whenever he did this one spinning kick he would always say something like "hwa-saint-aya!" EVERY TIME. Awesome, man.

There are people I admire for what they've done but it never gets to stage of idolization. I greatly appreciate them, 'tis all.

Macy is my idol. (Shiranui, yeah, that good graphic maker) I only just figured that out. (Most of you'd be suprised that it isn't Tali... but meh) Anyways, I idolize her because she's so much more interesting and better at making graphics.
