accordingly

Accordingly can be used as synonym for consequently. So, for example, you might say, “He is an imbecile. Accordingly, he acts like an idiot.”

What the hell’s the matter with you? True though it may be, it’s rather rude of you to call him an imbecile, don’t you think? Would it kill you to be a little more sensitive to other people’s feelings?

But enough about you and your trash-talking mouth.

In addition to being a synonym for consequently, if you act accordingly you act as expected. If you always act accordingly you’re probably an exceptionally boring person unless you intentionally put yourself into situations where bizarre behavior is the norm.

Just to be clear, I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with being a boring person. It would be hypocritical of me to say that because I’m an incredibly boring individual. And I’m no more exciting as a group (of one) either.

It’s just that you’d have to be crazy to use me as a role model. My life is, as I’ve already clearly stated, damned boring. Is that what you want for yourself? I don’t think so. So, knowing what you now know about my life, watch me and then act accordingly, by which I mean do the opposite.
