Are you a tree, grass or cloud type?

Post by Winston » February 4th, 2012, 11:45 pm

Hi all,
Earlier today while I was on the treadmill, thinking of something interesting to pass the time while watching the timer in front of me lol, I realized something: Most people aren't like me, are they? We all tend to assume and hold the fallacy that others are like us and want the same things we do, but they don't.

One of my advisors, Momopi, said this before:
Quoting one of my lady friends, there are 3 types of people: grass, tree, and cloud.

Grass types are happy when they find a nice sunny field to plant their roots.

Cloud types are more fickle, they change shape and move with the wind. They're happy when they're moving to new and exciting places.

Tree types plant their roots, but can grow tall into the sky. They can understand grass and cloud, but belong to neither.

If you find yourself in the sky as a cloud, looking down and wondering how all the grass can stand being rooted down, you should probably consider that they're looking up and wondering how you could stand being blown around by the wind.
I think he's right. I'm definitely a cloud type, which why I built an online residual income operation. But most people are like trees in that they seek to plant roots, become tied down, and live a safe solid routine. Have you noticed this? I think there are three types of people in this regard:

1. Tree: The first type seeks to plant roots in their home town where they grew up, even if they live a bad place with more cons than pros. They are uncomfortable with other places and see no other choice. Adventure and freedom is just an amusing fantasy to them that they see on TV or read about. They don't really need it. They prefer stability, predictability and routine. They are more than willing to be tied down in exchange for a safe stable home, job, family, marriage, regular friends, etc.

2. Grass: The second type seeks greener pastures to plant their roots and settle. They see freedom as the "freedom to choose where to plant their roots". They don't mind settling down as long as they are happy with their environment, living conditions, and people around them. Thus they are willing to move or relocate for a better life. A classic example of this were the settlers in 18th and 19th Century America who moved westward in search of new lands to settle in.

3. Cloud: The third type (like me) are the freedom junkies. These types live for adventure, new experiences, and meeting new people. They don't like to settle down into monotonous boring routines involving responsibility, obligation, servitude and burden. They dislike all forms of external control, long term obligations, permanent attachments, etc. To them, settling down is like binding yourself to a prison with a ball and chain. It's ok for a while, but becomes suffocating eventually. They need to feel free to roam and eject burdens from their mind. Every commitment or obligation feels like a threat to them. They can endure short term commitments, but long term ones scare them and threaten to imprison them.

To them, everything gets old after a while. They don't like seeing the same place, same environment or same people everyday. They even get tired of their own lovers and partners eventually. This is because they are wanderlust types who thrive on new experiences. They are perpetual travelers and nomads at heart. Unless they have a job doing something they really love, they become job hoppers, self-employed or unemployed hippies and bohemian artists. They can never give up their freedom, which is their most cherished thing, not even for a significant other. To them, freedom is like air - they can't live without it. They'd rather be poor and free than have money and be un-free.

I think most people are type 1 or 2, but I am a type 3. Society only acknowledges the existence of type 1 and 2, but not 3, because types 1 and 2 cater to stability and structure (which is the function of society) but type 3 does not. The thing is, only type 3's can understand me. But type 1's will never understand or relate to me. Society is built around type 1 and 2, but type 3 types have to find their own way and learn to think and live outside the box to accommodate their lifestyle.

What do you think? Which type are all of you?

I am definitely a type 2. I seek a harmonious balance between stability and adventurism. One extreme or the other would be very dangerous for me.

I think a life that is too care-free would be dangerous for people who have no awareness of their surroundings and just go with the whims of their chaotic nature. They don't plan or think carefully, which makes them end up in horrible situations. The unexpected is exciting, but it comes at a price.

A boring and routine life is safe and predictable. Marriage, kids, desk job, house with a white picket fence are appealing to those who just want to lay down roots and not experience anything outside their comfort zone. This is fine if they want to sacrifice their time and energy to start a family, but at what cost of their own personal happiness/fulfillment?

I want to travel the world and experience different cultures and places. I want to f**k as many different nationalities of women as possible. But I know someday, I'd probably could fall in love and want to start a family. But right now I am a horny bastard that seeks to liberate my Man Cock with as much hot young girls that my big pimpin' scores.

What about these elements?

Fire - Aggressiv
Water - Adaptation
Air - like water, but with lesser resistance
Earth - can be a rock but also slimy ;-)

Though my last name ist Fire, I think more like water. But maybe it´s the cooling like in a nuclear plant and in reality I am on fire, baby ;-)

Western Astrology has those elements. What is your sign?

Water signs
Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer

Air signs
Aquarius, Libra, Gemini

Earth signs
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Fire signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

I am a Pisces, so I am like water. But my moon sign is Gemini and my rising sign is Scorpio, so I have traits from those two signs as well.

I am libra. But I don´t know my ascendent (moon sign, I think). Yes I try to keep things light. But it´s not easy as a read headed turk ;-)
Though, anyway I don´t believe in astrology. My mother is pisces. She has a similiar personality to you;-)
When you could, which one would you chose? I think I would stay an air sign ;-).

Ascendant sign is the rising sign, it's where the sun was rising in the horizon when you were born, and changes every few hours. To find it, you have to look on an Astrology website. They have charts to help you figure out your rising and moon signs.

Sun signs are not set in stone, but the patterns definitely exist. I tend to connect with Geminis and Cancers very well, for instance. In Russia and Eastern Europe, about half the girls I met were Aries, a sign that's not afraid to talk to strangers. One sign occurring 50 percent of the time is definitely not a 1 in 12 chance. I also find Sagittarius girls to be very outgoing and adventurous.

How is your mom like me? In what way? Is she into mysticism and deep things and nonconformist?

There is also a science called geo-astrology, which helps you figure out the best place for you to live based on astrological factors. There is a free website that helps you to gauge that by showing you a world map that gauges your astrological compatibility with each country. It's pretty neat and seemed accurate. If I can find the site, I will post it here. It'd be a good way to determine where you would be "happier abroad". lol

Winston, I only have limited internet volume. You know I am a minimalist ;-). I do think their is correlation between the signs and charakter. But I think it has more to do with psychology. People try to identify with their signs. Besides I think the season in which you are born also effect your personality.
Be like water, bro ;-)
I am the wind, bro ;-)
