No time for love 

It is postulated that people can be seperated into categories of “goods” and “mes”. 

The categories actually tell us something about the persons underlying values – the flavor of the sum of all the values. 

If the sum outcome of your values is self serving or inward looking then you could be labelled a “me”. If the sum outcome of your values is communal or outward looking then you could be labeled a “good”.

A problem with any such categorisation having binary choice where one is perjorative is that there’s a tendency to superiority. And almost an accusation that someone might be at their heart slightly inferior to you. 

This problem is compounded when you create the taxonomy and then put yourself into the “good” category. What a hero you are. 

Perhaps we should round up the “mes” and look for some communal showers? 

So if you find yourself, for example, creating a system in which case you are the ultimate good and others need to be taught the champion of your good ways, you might just have to face that you are a bit of a “me”. 

Just a thought
