Thoughts I had today at a stop light.
In principle, in the abstract, there are three possible conditions you might be in on any given day.
1. Things could be good.
2. Things could be bad.
3. Things could be neutral—neither good nor bad.
So, in principle, at any given time, you could be in the good zone, or the bad zone, or the in-between neutral zone.
But here is where things get interesting. There are people who think that when nothing good is going on, then that's bad, and so there's no neutral zone after all. Let's call these people the hard to please. And there are others who think that when nothing bad is going on, then that's good. And so for them, there is no neutral zone either. Let's call these the easy to please. For each of these personality types, the theoretical neutral zone totally disappears. It vanishes. Poof. There is no in between.
And I bet you're one of the types. So: Which are you? And why?
I wanted to think about this more, but the light changed from red to green. I never saw the yellow.
