Your answer to the following question is surprisingly a pretty good indicator (h/t Boing Boing):
Here's a test: let's say a meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday, has been moved forward two days. What is the new day of the meeting?While you're thinking about your answer, I'll go ahead and say that I thought this seemed like a trick question plain and simple. I mean there could only be one possible answer right? Monday comes before Wednesday, so therefore if you move the meeting forward congratulations you've lost two days to prepare for said meeting.
Well apparently my inability to realize that Friday could also be the answer is due to the fact that I'm not an angry person:
If you think [the meeting is] Friday, you imagine time as something you move through. If you think it's Monday, you think of time as something that passes by you. So what? Well, according to the British Psychological Society, "Friday" people have an angrier disposition, than "Monday" people.Just a quick anecdote to confirm that idea, one time in college I was awarded "best demeanor" by some ladies who were trying to compile the perfect male out of our immediate group of friends (for those of you who know Hal Denbar, he was awarded "best feet").
I didn't consider that to be a scientifically verifiable hypothesis at the time, but now it's clear that this has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
And you guys thought blogging was a waste of time...
