Once upon a time, during the days of comic books and fairy tales and grandmothers' bedtime stories, I knew only two kinds of people, the Good guy and the Bad guy.
The good guy beats up the bad guy and it's the End of Story.
How neat is that?
Later I learned that real people come in shades of gray. That's when I started placing people in different gradients of grayscale. (yeah, somewhat like those stupid color scale strips they show in the ads of skin whitening creams)
All's fine till that.
But now, I have a problem.
What do I do with people who are high on the Black level and equally high on the White level? You know, one moment you feel they are too good to be true.. and the next moment, they give you reason enough to believe that they are the latest earthly incarnations of the devil himself. Now this is where I'm at loss. Either I can see pitch dark Black OR blinding White. I find myself oscillating them between the extremes and never manage to strike a balance.
Do you come across people like that? How d'you deal with them, then?
