There are two types of people...

That's got to be one of the most overused cliches ever. Although I wonder what on Earth an underused cliche would be. An oxymoron I guess, like "Sri Lankan ceasefire agreement", "Country music" or "funky white bloke". Some things just don't exist.

Recently I realised that many people make that statement, the one that goes..

"There are two types of people.."

They follow the words with a generalisation on how the Human race can be split into those that do one thing and those that don't, invariably with some sort of message about which type is the "best" one to be.

There are:

Those who do the work and those who take the credit

Those who walk into a room and say "Ah here I am" and those who say "Ah there you are"

Those who are creative thinkers and those who are critical thinkers

Those who say the glass is half full and those who say it is half empty

My personal favourite is that there are actually 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't.

But actually I don't think all the people in this big wide world can be classified into two types.

I firmly believe that there are two types of people in the world; those who believe there are two types of people and those who don't.

What type are you?

Actually there are three types of people in the world; those who can count and those who can't.
