Have I been too influenced by what I loved as a child?

Sometimes when I talk to people on the radio, I’m left slightly drained. Not often but sometimes. This week I listened to a relatively young woman tell me about a checklist men my age should study to find out if we’ve been badly influenced by our general experiences of growing up. She presented a narrow set of examples and I began to feel slightly guilty. Most of them were relevant to me.

My first mistake was to admit when I was about 10 years old I watched every John Wayne film on TV. I thoroughly enjoyed most of them. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is still my favourite film. She began tut tutting but she did say she admired me when I described The Quiet Man as my least favourite.
