Unless you define yourself to others as changing/changeble creature. The
"inconstant woman" tact has worked to free up half the race for hundreds
of years. So does the "Trickster" pose I use. My friends expect me wear
a different mask in every situation and sometimes change masks within the
situation. I have signed a "contract" I can live with, that allows me to
"change every second". Believe me, it's not easy to get yourself into a
position where you can do that, A reputation is a serious undertaking, but
it's really not that hard either compared to its benefits.
