Do not let anyone tell you otherwise, but people can be taken down to the core of simplest form and separated into three distinct groups. Yes, there are only three kinds of people in the world. Now some people cross over into the other kinds at certain points in their life, or the day, and some people can be in more than one kind, say a little of this and a little of that — it all depends on the person and their agency.
People that MAKE things happen.
People that WATCH things happen.
People that wonder “What the heck just happened?”
Cannot be any more simpler than that, and cannot be said any other way. It is plain fact.
People that MAKE things happen
Think about the people you know in the world that make things happen. Scientists, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Toyota, NetFlix, and this list can go on. These are people that dictate how we live. We buy their products, their services,; we follow their rules, their ideas, and so forth. Of course this is in the big picture. You may know someone in your life closer to you that makes things happen in your neighborhood, town, community, city, or state.
People that WATCH things happen
The people that watch things happen may also be people that make things happen. 40% of the human population watches things happen on TV, the internet, books, magazines, in person, and so forth. They understan what is going on around them for the most part.
People that WONDER “What the heck just happened?”
People that are in this group depend on others to help them live their lives. They are afraid to make decisions and do anything on their own. They buy what they are told because they saw it on tv, or the internet. They believe what they are told because they saw on tv, or the internet. They do not make any effort to better themselves or trust themselves. I am not talking about people with disabilities — most of them are smarter than me and I have all my faculties — I am talking about people who follow one form of information without verifying it with other sources.
What is my point?
If 40% of people WATCH things happen, and we know only 10% of people MAKE things happen, then that leaves 50% of the people wandering “What the heck just happened?” It saddens and scares me to see people going through life without a clue day after day. And when you try to help, they do not take it seriously thinking it will not happen to them. It is too late when it does happen to them as they were careless about their surroundings, their privacy, and their loved ones. It may just end up as an inconvenience replacing a credit card, getting the car fixed, deleting lots of spam, or it could be life threatening with identity theft, stalking, and human trafficking.
My point? Please remove yourself from “What the heck just happened?” to at least the WATCH things happen and take the proper steps to protect yourself by following our Internet Privacy and Security Guide.
