There are two types of people in this world…
And that’s a false statement. There are so many different types of people that it’s impossible to understand them all.
But the phrase ‘there are two types of people’ is still a useful phrase.
Because knowledge comes from identifying the difference between things.
You have to understand that a leaf isn’t a tree in order to understand what a leaf is.
And two is the easiest number of things to compare so that you can see those differences.
When someone describes two different types of people they’re doing it so that you can understand one concept that might be applied five million different ways by five million different people. But you can’t understand it until you see how it’s different from something else.
