It is said that there are only three types of people. (The illustrations I use in this article reveal more patterns, so pay attention, please)
1. make things happen
2. observes things happen
3. ponders what the heck happened.
This is so because of the three different ways to see patterns.
1. recognizes patterns, knows them intimately. The slightest indication of the pattern gives them clue about how things work
2. observes things happen, but doesn’t recognize patterns… unless they are pointed out. And only when they are pointed out. Is satisfied with so-so knowledge, surface… so cannot make things happen
3. can’t even (or won’t even) recognize patterns when they are pointed out. Is in the dark.
