No matter where you are or who you're with, your appearance and behavior are out of the ordinary. You're attached to your independence like bark to a tree. Occasionally you might worry that you won't be accepted because of your unusual ways, but that thought is immediately replaced by the fear of having to capitulate your standards for social approval.
Oddly enough, you often associate with rather conservative people, who find your slightly different way of doing things to be totally rebellious. The conundrum you find yourself in is that you want to do things your way, but often need the help of others to accomplish your goals -- and then you find that they have ideas of their own, which you have a hard time adjusting to. For similar reasons, you might avoid close personal relationships. There's little that is more threatening to your independence than an intimate partnership; the compromise needed for success in personal relations is a big stretch for you.
