there are two types of people in the world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data sets
Those that can!
There are two types of people in the world:
Those who crave closure
To Lisa ,
I understand very well the idea behind the description of the first type,however,I have no idea about your 2nd type of people.
Enlighten me please.
Dear Loong -
It's a joke
The joke is that those who crave closure will be quite upset because the sentence never finishes and lists the second type of people, who don't crave closure.
Name me the 2 types of individuals on this planet!
Those who crave closure, and those who don't crave closure
Those who live just a survival human life and those who survive thanks to spirituality ,human objects non necessary.
Actually there perhaps is a third type, they are not making sense out of the incomplete data set, nor do they *need* closure. They are just okay with leaving things open ended. They donâ€™t mind living with ambiguity.
*I* am the type who needs closure, I need meaning, I need things to make sense which is why getting older is such a wonderful thing for me.
Erica Jong once wrote that life is best understood backwards. Now that I have 20 years experience as an adult, I can look back and say â€œOh, thatâ€™s why I did such and suchâ€¦or oh thatâ€™s why that happened..NOW I understandâ€¦oh thatâ€™s how life works etcâ€¦if you do this, that usually happens. Ohhhhhâ€¦I get itâ€¦.â€œ
Even if it was bone headed stuff I did or â€œbadâ€ things that happened, at least I understand them nowâ€¦and I can finally have some closure in many areas of my life. I have answers to questions that plagued me for two decades.
But I had to live long enough to get to this point.
This reminds of the joke about how 4 out of 3 people don't understand fractions.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
