I have a theory. If characteristics were parameters and the entire spectrum of characteristics were to be represented as a set of a parameters — not binary, but an actual (0,1) scale and 0,1 are exclusive bounds — all of us are somewhere on such a scale for every parameter. I mean there’s a cut-off point, a trigger – until which the scale is dormant (so you aren’t ever 0), but something/someone triggers the parameter off and the parameter appears on your brain map. Most of us will die without having all such parameters triggered off and some of us will have triggered off conflicting parameters leading them to be difficult human beings. But on a dormant, greater or smaller scale, all of us possess the same kind of shit. It’s the little things, the triggers that define us, I guess. And by characteristics I mean a comprehensive list of things, Everything that you can think of.
