"Those that look for commonalities with others and those that look for differences."
Which type are you?
It is such an interesting use of terminology. I was confused by the lumpers and splitters reference. But, then again, I wasn't part of the conversation - I was eavesdropping. I know, shame on me. I couldn't help myself, sitting at the table alone, while my dining partner was in the restroom. Don't tell me you haven't done the same.
But the words caught my ear, and I listened for the explanation. It makes sense if you think about it.
And, I guess I am a lumper. I look for similarities. I look for what brings us together, not what drives us apart. What about you?
