  • My mind rarely works by following a discernible trail of thought. When I am forced to work my way through one, it is stressful and exhausting.

    You sound like an inductive thinker. That's how my mind works.

    • Wait, what is how your mind works? The referent in that sentence is totally ambiguous so I can’t figure out whether you are saying “we’re alike” or “we differ.”

      But yes, inductively is very much how my thinking works.

      • We're alike, except you're Croup and I'm Vandemar.

        • Hey, I'm reading that book [amazon.co.uk]!

          So, well, I recognize the names. When I'm done I might even understand your reference.

          • There are four simple ways for the observant to tell Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar apart: first, Mr. Vandemar is two and a half heads taller than Mr. Croup; second, Mr. Croup has eyes of a faded china blue, while Mr. Vandemar's eyes are brown; third, while Mr. Vandemar fashioned the rings he wears on his right hand out of the skulls of four ravens, Mr. Croup has no obvious jewelry; fourth, Mr. Croup likes words, while Mr. Vandemar is always hungry. Also, they look nothing at all alike.
