I tend to divide people into four quadrants whenever possible because four rants is usually a perfect number for 300 word Blog postings. Quadrant One houses people who project a positive vibe when you meet them but the halo effect is misleading because they are not who they appear. For example, psychopaths, sociopaths, and osteopaths could find themselves in this category. You are excited about the doctor you met but if the doc turns out to be a psychopathic osteopath, this can be a big disappointment down the road. Quadrant Two includes people who live up to the halo effect they project. Readers of my Blog invariably fall into this quadrant, although for the sake of a cheap laugh I just lost any followers connected to an osteopath. Quadrant Three individuals like me may cast a bad impression at first. We can seem a little too cynical, sarcastic, and full of ourselves. Later the reverse halo effect is confirmed when it turns out we are living in a court ordered Narcissist Treatment facility and stockpiling restraining orders. Quadrant Four residents also present badly when you first meet them. Maybe one rear ended your car when you impulsively decided not to run the red light. But by the time the movie ends, you are best friends getting wasted together on Friday nights. Everything is relative and relatives are at the root of most problems. When you are in Quadrant Three, you long for a day you might be able to squeeze into Quadrant Four unless your relatives have also wangled a ticket there.
