I often hear people say that there are only two kinds of people in the world the person who can be fooled and the person who fools. I don't believe in this though because I don't exploit anyone, but I don't agree that I'm a fool. . Perhaps in some aspects, but I'm not complete fool thought. The meaning really is that two types exists, those who can be led around and those who misleads them..lol..what's your take on this?

I am not sure whether only these two kinds of people are around, I have a feeling that there would be some more categories in between. It reminds me of a saying - "[i]You can fool a person at a time, you can fool a person all the time, yout cal fool all the persons at a time, however, you cannot fool all the persons all the time." [/i]I am more or less like you, I do not believe in cheating or exploiting anyone, I just cannot do it, my inner conscious does not allow me to do it. However, I have been foxed by others, many a times. Those might have been the occasions, when I believed that person blindly and may be I was incredulous on those occasions. But my such mistakes did teach me a lesson for my future. I try to remain alert and conscious, but still there could be persons, who are smarter than me and could fox me. Very Good Post![b][/b]

Hi dpk, yes we do think alike. I can't sleep when I know I have inadvertently "fooled" people. I would never do it deliberately. Because I don't want it done to me. Are you a follower of the Golden Rule? because I am. Cheers and thanks for that enlightening input.

I think that there are three kinds of people - those that can count and those that can't. (Sorry - I saw that on a t-shirt the other day and it made me laugh!)

I do believe that there are those kinds of people....but between them are the normal, intelligent, people who know what's going on....it's human nature that some should fit into these categories...but not everyone.

Yes I do. Even the Foxy can be fooled depending on how much knowledge they have on something. If they are not educated on a certain thing then someone can fool them very easily.

very nicely put..May be when you mislead some one, you fool him literally. He loses his thought process and gets mislead by some one and so he is fooled..I think, though used in different context, both carry some what same meaning in most of the places they are used..
