Is it better to underestimate oneself or to overestimate oneself?
>> No.14993  
Underestimate.

I find it hard to imagine situations where overestimating oneself is a good thing, unless copious amounts of luck are involved.

YOU FOOL!
YOU MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK WITH WILLPOWER AND SELF-BELIEF!
YOU DON'T THINK YOU'RE THE BEST, YOU KNOW YOU ARE!
THIS IS THE SECRET TO BEING ALPHA!

Someone who posts on /bun/ thinks he knows how to be "alpha".
Oh the comedy.

If you ain't ALPHA then you're BETA. And we don't take kindly to BETA types round here.

I am not ALPHA or BETA, i am EPSILON.
Deal with it.

How ironic you posted Takeru. BETA-slayer though he may be, he sure is beta as fuck.
The man breaks into tears and second-guesses himself every single scene!

You are being rude to DEUS EX MACHINA SHIROGANE.

Yeah, that's why he's such a great protagonist. Every time he thinks he has his shit in order and his resolve hardened, life throws him another fucked-up curveball and hits him where it hurts the most.
And how does he deal with his grief? The same way a normal guy does: he denies what happened, he lashes out at people close to him, he runs away, he laments his plight, then in just a matter of days, sometimes even hours, he mans the fuck up and returns ready for more. The dude flies through the K├╝bler-Ross model so fast it's not funny, and these are things that would crush even the strongest-willed man: He sees 5 billion people die as he fights in a suicide mission. His most idolised and beloved mentor is eaten in front of him. Everyone in his own world forgets about him or dies horrifically (including the love of his life), and he discovers it's HIS FAULT. He watches as another mentor and trusted superior dies in front of him. THEN IT HAPPENS A THIRD TIME. The guy loses more friends and loved ones in 2 months than most people will in a lifetime. And through all of this he's living as an endangered species in a constant war-zone against a grotesque, alien race that seem hell-bent on mankind's extinction.
The world's heaped such an enormous amount of shit on top of him, but all it's done is make him rise further above it. And he's STILL a dependable, trustworthy, LIKEABLE guy after it all. His character development is so well-written that you sometimes don't even realise that he's slowly changing until after it's happened, and the best thing is that his growth and evolution is completely believable.

I suppose what I'm trying to say in a roundabout, rambling kind of way is that Shirogane Takeru is as ALPHA as it gets, bitch.

All of you, stop talking about muv-luv alternative.
Us normal folks are getting all sorts of spoiled gelatin.

The secret is to use Daemon Tools instead of PowerISO to mount the image.
I was so mad when I found out.

It is better to properly estimate oneself. Spend time learning how to do that, not quibbling about this alpha/beta nonsense.
