there are those who can count

and those who can’t.

Ok, that was a joke.  I’m sitting at Cafe Ardour overhearing a conversation between three people at the table next to me.  Their conversation started me thinking about this distinction between people.  So here you go, for real.

There are people whose love for life is contagious.
There are people whose contempt for life is caustic.
And there are people who are “emotional followers” of the other two types of people.

By “emotional followers” I simply mean that their mood can become dictated by a stronger personality of a person in the other two categories.  Any thoughts on these types of people?  Which one are you?
