The Thursday Threesome
Capricious: Governed or characterized by impulse or whim, lacking rational basis or likely to change suddenly
Onesome: Characterized by impulse–Do you consider yourself impulsive or do you tend to think everything through before you make a move?
On the whole, I am not an impulsive person. If I were, then I still wouldn’t be able to elicit surprised reactions on the rare occasions that I am.
I hope this doesn’t make you think that I’m boring. (Or maybe it does.)
Twosome: lacking rational basis–If you are impulsive, do you rationalize and justify your actions? Like, since that item you bought on a whim was on sale, you really saved money by buying it?
No, I do not rationalize. I am fairly accepting of my own impulsive behavior. If someone else expects a rational reason for it, well, tough luck.
Threesome: or likely to change suddenly– When you make up your mind, does it stay made up or do you tend to change your mind at the last minute? …or do you waffle back and forth until you’re forced to decide?
I make up my mind at the last possible minute. This annoys the heck out of people who like to get things done early. It does not mean, however, that I’m constantly waffling on my decisions–I just like to take my time about it.
