Do you have any friends on Facebook or Instagram that share ~inspirational~ quotes for everyone to see?
Aren’t you so much better because of their desire to inspire you and the rest of their Facebook friends?
Shouldn’t we thank them for their service to mankind?
In their study conducted of 300 people they asked individuals to rate quotes on a scale of 1-5 based on their profoundness, as well as classifying quotes as “profound”, “bull****”, or “mundane”.
The individuals then took personality and cognitive tests to determine their intelligence.
They found that those who recognized the “bull****” quotes from the rest also scored the highest in the cognitive tests. So the smart people realize how uninspiring and mundane these quotes are while the not-so-smart (?) people share any and all things that sound inspirational, regardless of how little sense these quotes make.
A musician, artist and member of the influential art-rock band The Velvet Underground, John Cale has had a varied and artistically rich career, and one full of choices which had to be made. Given his longevity and the sustained success of his career, it would suggest that he has normally made the right ones. What this quote is saying is that some decisions need to be quick, and others require more thought. Sometimes it’s important to act on impulse, and at other times a more considered approach is necessary. It’s what decisions you make and when which ultimately shape your life.
