What is the Wolf Mentality? I mention it often, a tag I often use in my posts. It’s not a term of my creation but of Thorin’s, owner of Wicked Jester and author of 6 books. Even then, the mentality pre-dates Thorin himself.
It’s a mentality that is independent, curious, and aware. Those who possess this mind-set look at the world with curiosity, a un-biased independent mind, and gain awareness because of it. The more we learn of the world and ourselves the stronger and more confident we grow. Wolves do not follow others, but are directed by our own minds, because we question everything, especially orders.
It’s a anti-label, since the only thing that wolves have in common is the think for yourself, by questioning everything, and accepting nothing blindly, principle we live by. That’s our interior, the exterior can be tattooed and pierced with crazy hair to neat and clean-cut; loud and boisterous to quiet and withdrawn. All races, sexes and whatever personal choices a person can make tell you nothing until you dig deeper into the reasoning behind it. Its how they think, not what they think. Their motivations, external or internal. That’s how you tell wolf from sheep.
