For all two of you that read my blog, I'm going to take a blogging vacation. This will be my last post this year. In the meantime, I was watching the show Duel last night and I found it funny that every person on that show has a label. Labels like the Belly Dancer, the Used Car Salesman, and the Telemarketer are used to help a contestant pick their duelmate. The host then explains how teh labels are incomplete and how the Belly Dancer actually has a 4.0 GPA or that the Football Playing Telemarketer that loves Dirty Dancing (the movie, not the activity).
I know I like labels. For example, I am an ESTJ. I am a Student Minister. I hate though saying either of those things at a party because A) I hate being labeled as a Minister only (no more than a person being labeled as just a lawyer or something else) and B) no one knows what ESTJ means.
We label things/people we want to understand better and we remained focused on those labels.
What label are you given that you can't stand? What labels do you put on others?
