There are some people can’t follow directions, and there are some people who can’t function without them.
My personality belongs in the first camp. My rebellious and independent nature doesn’t need to be told what to do and works best traveling without a map.
I would rather life be experienced than explained, and don’t feel the need to predict behavior to gain a sense of security. I love the wondrous experience of becoming open to whatever life brings.
And so, it’s no surprise that people in the other camp infuriate me. Perhaps you know someone like this. They insist on doing everything by the book. They grow paralyzed without explicit instructions. They always look for the magic clue that will explain everything. They break out in hives when structure is removed and the rules are broken. And they believe things only work with clearly defined rules, procedures and plans.
This personality isn’t good or bad, right or wrong, better or worse, it’s just different than mine. Which is fine. However, a large part of me also believes these neurotic hall monitor douche canoes ought to be locked into portable toilets and set on fire.
Other than that, I have no strong opinions on the matter.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Are you at war with this person, or is it just a personality clash?
