Diffuseness and The Grey Zone...

I've always been a black and white kinda gal. But I notice myself moving into the Grey Zone...I guess that is a sign of...maturity?

But in any case I notice that being diffuse as opposed to polar can actually make for quite a dull personality. I was talking to two chick friends of mine...and they kind of got into a slightly heated discussion.

In any case I love a good intellectual discussion(not argument) so I was still trying to contribute my 2c here and there, but in the end I realised I wasn't taking a side and it was just BORING! Not to mention the two sparring bulls had stopped listening to my input since I was not helping either of their cause...

I think I noticed I just have this ability to be readily able to see both sides of an argumemt especially where there isn't an abhorrent lack of ethics or amorality involved. So in the end I just fencesit cos to me neither is right or wrong! I think this can piss off the more emotional and unobjective brains of normal females...

I guess in this sense I can be that grey kind of open minded...I guess it's a good thing to move away from monochromatic extremes...

Theoretically sounds like you should go into law and become a judge. I know I tend to be the sort of person that see both sides and sometimes I can really get into trouble if I'm not taking the side of the person who thinks I should be taking their side. But I can't help it-- I just like to be fair and I don't like to fight.
You should check out by Thursday blog posts when I present topics for debate. I'd like to get some intelligent input. I have a few people that give some good comments, but most of my blog followers seem to avoid my debate topics.

LAW?? no thanks, leave that for the rest of the family. I hate disputes...period.

to be honest, most things are too trivial...I don't care enough to bother involving.

Yes I think you are exactly right, almost everything we deal with in our day to day lives is trivial. Since school I have felt a little odd and very boring because I did not have strong opinions about most things. To me it is mostly a matter of opinion and the subject of the opinion is not important. I am now very content with this aspect of my personality. I do feel strongly about treating all people (except obviously evil people) in the world with love and respect. But no-one is going to disagree with that so there is not much left for me to argue about or express a strong opinion on :)
