Halloween costumes often provoke this question in people and I wonder why. We seem to have a strong need to label or categorize people. We even want to do this on festive occasions when the whole point is to have fun!
Do you do this?
How does this habit play out in your business relationships? You work in a richly diverse environment and you have respect for human rights. Yet, you still want to know where everybody fits in.
Do you find yourself wanting to ask people, “What are you dressed up as?”
I am curious if you think it is negative or positive to categorize others. Maybe it’s important to know if a person feels, on the inside, the same way they appear on the outside.
What do you think?
