Pokerface

Every time I'm tempted to make a mental filing cabinet to fit in all the people I know, so I can slot them into neat, organised little categories to make things simpler for me, every time I'm almost convinced that I've finally got a 'handle' on my piece of humanity's pie, people surprise me. And in a most fascinating, anthropologically stimulating way.

Either I'm extremely poor at judging people or extremely good at looking past surfaces. Or maybe its just that these people I know are absolutely resistant to banal slotting. :)

People surprise us, don't they? All the time. Someone who you think is extremely rude turns out to be extra helpful. And like that. :)

True. It happens to everyone. Initially, I considered it as a result of one's own presumptuousness and subjectivity when it comes to judging people. But then, I found that I was undermining man's ability to be multifarious. After all, everbody harbours an alter ego within, no? To put it more plainly, I shall quote the cheeky and wise 'label' of your post,"People moving all the time inside a perfect straight line. Don't you wanna curve away? It's such a perfect day." :D
Great thought. Beautifully articulated...

"I found that I was undermining man's ability to be multifarious."

Thats very wise, Rohith! I'll remember that. :)

And that great thought is beautifully articulated in this song called Strawberry Swing by Coldplay, who're one of my all-time favourite bands. You should try listening to their songs, they have some rather insightful lyrics. :)
