I find people are obsessed with anything that tells them for a fact who they are. From Astrology to Briggs Myers the search for self and people you’d like to interact with is deep and winding. Folks need your birth time and place followed up with your Truity results before you can grab a cup of coffee with them. But this isn’t really a drag on the folks who define themselves by their strong opinions, even if at times they ignore the problem with being hardnosed in these areas. Today we will drag folks who define themselves by having no opinion at all.
One of my favorite movie quotes is uttered by Joe Fox ( Tom Hanks) in You’ve Got Mail. Joe (clearly an ESTJ) boldly declares “The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat! Just so people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are, can for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self…” Now while there is some inflation on these coffee prices I want someone to please give Joe is flowers. He hit the nail right on the head. It seems to me the less you know yourself, the more random opinions you proclaim in an attempt to define who it is you are. Then you get mad when people who are sure of themselves (for good or bad) are not buying what you’re selling. Aren’t we exhausted Chet?
So for future reference here is my strong opinions on your non opinions. Barring allergies you can’t tell me a good reason not to eat ethically sourced eggs, cheese and milk. There is no reason. The animals need to produce these things and damn it I need nachos! If you think you’re woke please go back to sleep. You probably just like to argue well researched and true facts so you can feel fancy. Voting independent is you refusing to put on your big boy pants and does nothing but split the results. We are a two party system. Get over it. And hello Shirley? This is Barbara. I just wanted to talk woman to woman. If you’re a feminist who excuses your man’s behavior while roasting everyone else’s publicly ( the majority of ya’ll) you suck. I know this was a lot to process, but please as the kids say, don’t at me.
