Which kind are you ?

There are different kinds of people. Largely, they fall into the following two categories.
1. One who listens to the heart.
2. One who listens to the mind.

and then there's a third kind, One who is confused between the two.

I have friends who are emotionally controlled and I have other friends who have no emotions, no wait..who have emotions but know how to control them and move on for all practical reasons.

Somehow, sometimes, I feel the latter are much better off and lead a happier life, coz., they don't end up getting hurt too often. Other times, I feel they aren't living their lives fully. They don't get to live the joys and sorrows of being a true friend, of being in love.

On the other hand, the emotional ones, live life, love, make merry, break down and get hurt when relationships go sour, take time to recover, but again continue to live life to the fullest.

Where do people strike an equal balance ?

I wonder.

Weird Urge.

I usually take the elevator to reach my floor at work (the 8th floor). Few many times, I am the last person getting out in my floor. I sometimes, have this urge to press the buttons 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0 and -1, and get off, so that the empty lift continues it's journey to stop in each floor until -1, before it starts responding to user requests.

Now why do I have such an urge ? What do I gain out of doing this ?

Nothing !

But what do I end up doing inturn,

Cause some inconvenience in holding up the lift. (Anyway, there are 5 other lifts, so what the heck?)

Imagine if it's during an odd time when there aren't frequent movement of people, the security in each floor sitting at the reception will know that the lift stopped, the door opened, but nobody got out. Also, quite silly that the lift stopped here coz., there's nobody outside who pressed the button (requested for the lift).

Imagine if this happened more or less on a near daily basis at a consistent time. The security is either going to be dumb and not take notice, or take notice and dismiss it or take notice and get worried.

Now that'll be fun.

Totally weird.
