“'Fictional me' is the term I use for when people create fictional versions of me in their minds. It's sometimes very frustrating, as many humans do it and I (we) can't do much about it.

"Everyone may have a 'Fictional Me' for everyone they meet (unless, of course, those people are out of the ordinary and are open to discovering the true person)! It can be challenging to deal with people who create strong FM's that are quite different from the true person!"

"Many people take it upon themselves to try to judge others. I suggest that judgement (and condescension, etc.) comes from insecurity. While people may not be in a position to judge the character of others, many people attempt to do so. It seems to be the perceived business of some to judge others. Insecurity seems to manifest in that way. Insecurity in race manifests in anger/hatred/judgement toward other races; religion toward other religions; sexuality toward other sexualities; nationality toward other nationalities; etc. etc. Insecure people tend to pry into others’ business and judge them for the answers that differ from theirs." 2015
