I'm a pretty laid back person for the most part. And I think that has a lot to do with my preferences. You see, I like everything pretty much middle of the spectrum.
I don't like spicy food for instance. Or heavily seasoned. Everything is created with a light hand. For instance, my chili is savory and flavorful, but I don't use more than a dash of this or a pinch of that. A whisper of chili powder, maybe. Salt, pepper, dill, tarragon - everything in any dish is very light.
I don't enjoy either hot or cold weather. Ideally, if the outside was between 60f and 80F, I'd find it heavenly.
I don't appreciate loud music but too quiet puts me to sleep.
I don't drive fast or slow.
I don't do confrontation, but I also can't stay silent when things need saying.
I have no interest in seeking thrills, but I also can't stand being bored.
About the only extremes I can think of that are part of my makeup are: I used to drink to excess and now I don't drink at all. But I think with alcohol, when you reach one extreme, then embracing the other is probably the best idea.
Middle of the road. And it works for me.
How about you?
