I came across the definition of human nature which can be classified into four categories, and here comes the big question: Which group do you fall under? Your view point about things around you determines the future.......eg: human intervention and pollution.....or in other words: Destruction! 1. Individualists: These are self-made people relatively free from the control of others, who strive to exert control over their environment and people in it. Their success is often measured by their wealth and number of followers. eg: a village millowner. 2. Hierarchists: This group inhabit a world with strong group boundaries, social relationships are hierarchical and everyone knows his or her place. eg: a King 3. Egalitarians: These people have strong group loyalties but little respect for externally imposed rules, other than those imposed by nature. eg: enviromentalists 4. Fatalists: this group have minimal control over their lives. They belong to no groups responsible for decisions that rule their lives. They are resigned to their fate and see no point in trying to change it. eg: I don't know! Whether its a myth or truth.....I shall leave it to you to decide. so.......which group do you fall under?......start thinking now....and don't think too much! be honest :)

I like this post, I must admit I have probably gone through all those stages at one point of my life. I do not stay in any of those catergories for very long, as I change with the wind I suppose.

Never say never, eh lol. I will never stay within one catergory, it is not the way I'm built, which is good in a way but bad in another as I never know what I'm going to do next.

Great post. Well, without a large amount of pondering I suppose I would have to choose group 3. I am loyal and actually submissive by nature wihtin my "group" so to speak but do not have a lot of respect for most of the socially imposed rules. (I mean law is good but for example; gay marriage is basically not accepted and laws against it are imposed on us).

If I were to have to choose one category over the others, I would have to say that I come closest to three, although I have also crossed boundaries into other categories from time to time, so I guess you could say that I am a bit unstable at times. Although I realize that some are necessary, I have always hated having laws and rules forced on me. However, as with group four, I also believe in fate and that you only have so much control over your own destiny.
