The Many Kinds of People create BALANCE in the world..

Observing human behaviors and analyzing attitudes has been a favorite hobby of mine for years.. And you can learn a GREAT deal by pure observation, pattern analysis and basic interpretation...

From what I've seen, people fall into one of the below categories:
Category 1 : Idealists , Realists & all those in-between
Idealists are those who are "idealistic" about everything in life - They have strong ideals and values, and no matter what they stick with their ideals. They usually find it hard to live and accept the real world of today, which is infest with "non-idealists" people - For whom REAL ideals don't exist

Realists are those who believe that what's of paramount important is to "LIVE life" in the real world, and do what it take to get through every day. They do have a core set of ideals, but are open / willing to deviate / make exceptions - to take them through the journey of life
pondering : Are you an idealist or realist? This will define how your life will turn out

Category 2 : Optimists , Pessimists & all those in-between
Optimists are those who are extremely positive about everything in life. They do have moments of pessimism, but most of the times they are positive. They usually prefer to see the light, the rainbows and the good in anything!

Pessimists are those who are predominantly negative about everything in life. There are times when they are positive, but they are few to find, and few to count. They usually prefer to see the dark, the rains and the not-so-good things in anything!
pondering : Are you an optimist or pessimist? This will define how your life will turn out

Category 3 : Opportunists, Altruists & all those in-between
Opportunists are those who look at every situation as a potential opportunity with personal upside gains and personal downside losses. If the upside looks bright, they'll say what needs to be done, do what needs to be done . They conveniently ignore the situation if the downside looks more probable, & move on to greener pastures without too much of a care or thought in the world.

Altruists are those who look  at any situation from a selfless perspective ; more in terms of the larger good / welfare of others. They think, speak and act accordingly; even if it means personal loss,  personal discomfort, personal sacrifice ....
pondering : Are you an opportunist or altruist? This will define how your life will turn out

Here's what I realized
For balance, the world needs
Idealists, Realists & all those in-between
In equal measure; Not as absolute numbers
But in terms of intent, thoughts, words and deeds

For balance, the world needs
Optimists, Pessimists & all those in-between
In equal measure ; Not as absolute numbers
But in terms of intent, thoughts, words and deeds

For balance, the world needs
Opportunists, Altruists & all those in-between
In equal measure ; Not as absolute numbers
But in terms of intent, thoughts, words and deeds

That's my view. What's yours? Leave a comment to let me know..
