As the world and humans are complex, how can one be complex and contrary?

What do all others do to be as such?

It seems many people are, and it gets them by.

I am simple and agreeable.
I find other words for so called complex people.
And stay away from contrarians that just waste my time and
are their own worst enemies.
Not what you were looking for maybe, sorry.
Take care.

No but many people, and it gets them by.

If people often say things and do the opposite, or have complexities in their values and actions, I can also.

Default Can one be more appealing by being more complex?

er...I see many people are complex in what they say and do.

How can I be the same?

Somebody told me recently that the only things that make them happy are simple things, but then I see many say they're happy by getting houses, cars, TVs, etc.

And it's the norm to say one is non-judgmental but then hate gays, blacks, etc.

How can I be the same?

That's called hypocritical, not complex.

If you want to be more complex by your definition, just say one thing and do the other. Problem solved

Just be yourself and find friends who like you as you are. Don't try to be something you are not.

Some people have opposing or challenging forces within themselves. Some have an easier inner harmony. Some people have a mixture of both.

Exactly.
"Games" was good, too.
