Profile - Hello My Name Is Scott

It all started about two years ago, when Scott Ginsberg of Portland, Oregon attended a convention where he had to wear a nametag. Afterwards, he headed off to hang out with some friends and decided to leave the nametag on for fun - and it hasn't left his side (or chest, rather,) since. To date, Scott has used over 1731 nametags in his quest to make the world a friendlier place. Just how is he planning on doing that? Read on to find out!

The Nametag Theory

Originally, Scott Ginsberg was just out to have some fun with his nametag wearing, but soon it became much more. It became a quest to change the way people interact with one another. Scott thinks people have lost the ability for simple interaction with one another (like greeting one another in the street.) So, his theory is that with his nametag, he makes himself more approachable and easier to talk to. And so far the theory seems to be working.

Where The Nametag Has Taken Him

How can making yourself easier to approach change the way you live? For Scott Ginsberg, he's met many people because of his nametag. Whether they're people pointing out that he's forgot to take his nametag off or peeps who think it's cool to try and beat him up cuz of his nametag, Scott's met 'em all. "One time this dude came up to me and yelled, 'Scott! What's up!' and gave me a huge hug and was giving me high fives and stuff. That was pretty funny," Scott says of one of his most memorable, nametag encounters.

How Do You Make The World Friendlier?

While Scott doesn't recommend that everyone go out and slap on a nametag, he does think that everyone can make a difference. "I think you should be nice to everyone because that's the way you would want to be treated."

Is There An End In Sight?

For a project that just started out as something fun to do, Scott Ginsberg doesn't plan to ditch his humanitarian efforts anytime soon. "Initially I only wanted to have fun. But now, I just want to change the world. I mean, CONTINUE to change the world. The only end in sight is my own death, which at the rate I am going, may be sooner than I want if these random dudes keep picking fights with me."

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.

    Nothing happened between us. I just feel like I'm not important to her.
