Meta Question

Have you noticed that most of Jellies questions fall into two subcategories?

The two sub categories are semantic, literal thought. Very detail oriented and easy to follow. The second is relational or concept based thought, the poster’s on these types of questions have subjective or episodal answers.

This is something I noticed even as a new member. I recognized basic differences but never felt I could appropriately categorize them because I didn’t understand their intrinsic nature.

I noticed that the majority of people stuck to one or the other grouping, most of the time helpfully delineated by general or social but not necessarily. If they did answer outside of their category the nature of their answer still reflected the other type of though processing.

There is also a third group, that shifts between the two, sometimes just for specific topics. But even in this grouping these people seem to have a natural “home”....

There are so many questions I want to ask in regards to this but I want to see where this goes. Most of the time I view the orderly semantic process as more intelligent. So I have tried to learn, I’m not sure if I am very successful yet. Or how to ascertain that I am. In this case I am missing the mark. On the other hand I want to celebrate the innovative and more complete approach of seeing thing outside of boxes. So I realize they both have value. But to what degree and how to adapt to optimize these two different approaches? How do you think and why? Have you tried to change?

Hopefully this question just gets the juices going. I don’t really want to constrain people to answering a limited question, unless it is helpful.
