    Your comment seems to suggest that those that see the point are superior in some way. On the contrary, it’s the pointers who are superior. The pointers make their point (their argument) in compelling, persuasive fashion and lead others to join them. Effective pointers change minds and in doing so, change history.

      Well taken … but I maintain that the pointers are such a rare breed that they qualify as an exception to the “only two kinds of people” statement.
      Besides, if I allow that there could be more than two kinds of people, I may have to re-examine my comfortable dualistic mindset.
      Now that’s scary thought.

      Additionally, it is well known that there truly are only two kinds of people, those who think dualistically, and those who don’t.

        Kinda like: “People get the blues or else they give ’em.” I think that might have been Nelson Algren, that renowned Chicago dualist. You are right—there is a comfort factor in an either/or thing. Over-choice is confusing.
