You know those people who you can’t talk to? The people you can’t converse with or transfer information to for whatever reason? We are calling them “fans” on this blog because when you meet someone like this and try to talk to them, your words are blown back to you in little bits. The fan person can just not take anything in so you are in fact completely wasting your time when you talk to them. Continuing to outline the various types as promised:
People who are super defensive are also fans. People with an attitude or an agenda to defend. And it can be as stupid as a person who identifies themselves as a cookie eater. They looooove cookies.
“Oh yeah? Well I see you eat pie all the time,” I might say.
“No! Cookies! It’s cookies that I eat, I am a cookie eater.”
“But we ate pie last night. In fact we ate pie six times last week.”
“Yeah but I’m really a cookie eater. I have always been a cookie eater all my life.”
“Er, never mind. Cookies it is!”
Here is the astrology version:
“I hate Scorpios. Hate those bastards!”
“Really? But your son has a Scorpio Moon. Matter of fact he has 4 planets in Scorpio.’
“Oh, well he must be some other kind of Scorpio because I have never gotten alonfg with Scorpio in my life. Those people are awful.”
“Hmm. Well it sounds like you hate those Scorpios.”
This is an interesting one because if you are like this it is very easy to change. Just quit defining yourself. It’s like saying you’re a pizza eater or you love M & M’s. Say that and you’re locked in. It’s like you have eat pizza or little chocolate candies all the time just to prove you are right. Yep, you’re a pizza eater all right. You. Eat. Pizza.
“Porn does this and that bad thing.”
“What about all the people who feel porn enhances their relationships?”
“No! Porn does this and that bad thing.”
“Astrology and astrologers – now those people suck.”
“Do you know any astrologers?”
“No, but I know astrology sucks. I hate astrology.”
“Oh yeah, I can see that you do. Interesting, that’s very interesting…”
Fan, fan, fan, and fan.
You can see what’s happening here. No new information allowed!
People like this ought to just give you a handout when you meet them, sort of like a list of the specs of an automobile. What it says is what they are and there is no sense talking to the thing.
