There are two types of people in this world...

The funniest joke I ever heard was, "There are two types of people in this world, those who divide everyone into two types of people and those who don't."

Maybe you had to be there. Or maybe you had to be me. My point in relaying the gem is how natural it seems to be for people to split everyone into two types on just about everything. Of course we know the truth is much more complex, but it seems like the need to simplify to two types is irresistible. I find it irritating.
