I am also thought to be a person of extremes- I have wondered in the past if I am perhaps simply intollerant, but I have since been told I am more thought of as someone who simply expects people to behave decently, and refuses to humour peoples crap. I don't like timeasters, emotional blackmailers, people who are all talk and no action, those who won't take responsibilty for themselves, or those who think the world owes them something; I will go to the absolute ends of the earth for friends and even go out of my way for anyone simply in need, but I am quite vindictive, and have even been considered dangerous, toward those who have scorned me in some way. My Mum tells me this is a result of being a Scorpio, but I don't buy in to that; If I am going to do something, I will do it properly and will become farly obsessed about it. A Psychiatrist once suspected I had a mild form of OCD. Thankfully, I don't, I'm just particular; I don't tend to have mild emotions. If something makes me happy, I will get so overjoyed by it, very little would be able to burst my bubble. If something upsets me, I will be inconsolible for days. Again, it was thought by various health professionals that I had something akin to Bipolar for a few years. No, I am not crazy.
In turn, people tend to either love me or hate me. There are very few people I have encountered who would place themselves in the grey area in between. Thankfully, I am quite pleasently surprised by the number of people who gladly count me as one of their friends.
Overall, I am pretty much OK with most types of people. I like that everyone is different and thinks different things and likes different things. It makes the world interesting and always full of new things to discover and learn. People interest me as a result. I have been warned not to treat people like Psychological test studies, and I do my best to avoid doing that, but I have this insatiable urge to learn all about people and figure them out- See what makes them tick and why. Different people fascinate me. People are exciting.
