why should it be true? unless you’re applying a label to a mailing envelope, the ‘truth’ in it is entirely subjective. seems like much of the time, too, the person who labels is revealing a lot about his or her self.

and as well, people consistently labeling *themselves* aren’t always accurate. (unless that person is me.)

does it make it the whole truth? no. But if the label is based on informed opinions, then I think it holds a truth of sorts. You may not agree with the ‘label’, but from an outside perspective you may portray that trait.
IE, I know that I come off as ’emo’ to a lot of people…ok, fine, everyone… but I would not consider that to be the truth about me. However, I wouldn’t say its not true, just not something I believe myself to be. Although I do see myself as babbling. that and boring. and unintelligible.

sounds “emo” to me…

but really, you are only who you decide to be. unless you choose to make yourself more of a label than not (for association purposes)

…and you prove my point.
