There are 2 types of people in this world: those who ________________ and those who _____________________.

Curious to see how the TED community takes the billions of people from different backgrounds, cultures, etc.of the world and condenses it down to 2 types. Maybe we aren't so different after all...

      • Aug 31 2011: I agree whole heartedly and enjoyed this response Thomas!! I believe you would have contributed well to a conversation I created, now closed, regarding DUALITY of all things or as Joe Delsen said in the conversation what he calls it is the Paradox Principle, I may include what you have written here for my closing statement!!

        Where I come from on what I said here, all though everyone has and needs love is that when we make judgements on someone, in that moment the only judgment that matters is whether we are willing to go beyond our reactions and offer a loving response versus a negative one...

        “ … Rebellion is a knot of the heart, not of the mind. The key is to make deposits – constant deposits of unconditional love.” Stephen Covey (Seven Habits of Highly Successful People)
