3 Types Of People
I admit this may offend. If you don't like to be called names then don't read any further!

I believe, and this is from a cynical point of view, that there are only 3 types of people in the world. Masochists, Sadists, and the ones I call Helpfuls. The Masochists want to be ruled by anyone. When told to jump, they jump. Some may even ask how high and how long ect. It depends on how Masochistic they truely are. The Sadists are the ones who want to rule the world no matter what. They want control. Then there are the Helpfuls (that's the best name I've got). They won't take any crap but they do want to help. There are no clear cut lines and one may fall into different catagories but that's just how I see things. I myself am a Masochist.

I spend alot of time alone and observing people. I suppose that over time I just saw patterns. Then being with sadists helped me come up with this idea as well. I'm a masochist because it seems to fit. Like I said, I've been with sadists and I enjoyed the things they did to me. I also cut. I jump when people tell me to. My dad is definatly one of those "Helpfuls". I didn't really know my mom, she died when I was 9 months old. My step mom is definatly a Sadist. Not so much as some others but she is very controling and does hit me. Parental upbringing may have something to do with it but I think it has more to do with life experiences. I do believe that it can change as you grow older and experience more things. I really believe it is caused by cynicism. The Helpfuls arn't quite so cynical. The Sadists have come to believe that there is not much happieness or light left in the world so they decide to grab as much as they can any way they can. The Masochists are also cynical but have decided that happieness is so short that they would rather do what they can to make the other happy. Seen from a masochistic prespective things seem abit different, I'm sure, than if you are looking at it a different way.

I'm definitely a Sadist. It's funny that I can place people in those categories just by thinking of things they say and do.

The Helpfuls want to live for themselvs. Not for someone else or for happiness. They want to live just for themselvs. They want to get by. They want to be comfortable. At least thats the best I can work it out. And all of the poits were very good ones.

personally, i see all three of these traits in almost everyone i come across. i dont think a person is one of these and only one all of the time. but depending on the circumstances and the situation they are put in, they will become one of the three.

im trying to think of a fourth but its not coming to me at the moment... perhaps there really are only three ways to "react" to a given situation.

as an example, when i am around adults a tend to be a masachist because i respect elders and will do pretty much whatever they command and happily i might add. but when i am around my peers i tend to be more of a sadist because i want to do things that i will enjoy and i want my peers to listen to what i have to say about things and "respect my authortay" as cartman would put it. also, when i am alone running errands or out doing various things on my own i am very much a helpful. i am not in a situation where i want to control nor be controlled and so i become very happy to do things for myself and others on a whim. i am guessing that the majority of people are this way.

exactly these "3 types of people" catagories are too braod, every person in the world falls into all three, but you can get used to a cetain way, however which can CHANGE either from people to people depending on time or change in general... but you might aswell make a thousand more catagorys that people can fall into.. its too broad and narrow what was first proposed

Isn't a Masochist someone who gets sexual pleasure from pain? (no joke)
