There are three primary types of people in the world (when it comes to work) :

  • 1. People who slack off, and will only do good work when it's an emergency. The type 1 people really want to slack off all the time and only work when forced.
  • 2. People who slack off, and will only do good work when it's an emergency. The type 2 people really want to get a lot of work done, but they're terrible planners and procrastinators.
  • 3. People who just do good steady work; these people work best when it's not an emergency.

Now, many of the people in charge tend to be type 2, (they're almost never type 1, since you don't get to be in charge by being purely lazy). The type 2's tend to create emergencies so that work gets done. The 2's also believe that everyone else in the world is a type 1, eg. the emergencies are needed to make people work. The 1's think that they're always doing a reasonable amount of work, comparable to the 3's. The 3's refuse to admit that the emergencies serve any purpose at all, and most realize they're not real emergencies.
