    i always read crazy when i see this thread?

    so tell me, would you rather be considered lazy or crazy?
    crazy meaning that you live in a mental world into which 90% of people cant follow you and you don't seem to care to emphasize the 10 percent that you have in common frequently.

    I'm pretty lazy but it comes out in that I'm "efficient" or, do things in a way that shorten the task greatly and allow me for more lazy time. So most of the time people don't notice that I'm extremely lazy. Those that do are ones that know me pretty well and are absolutely correct. And we can laugh about it together.

    I hate it. -__- I'm sluggish when it comes to thinking ahead, but...I resent "lazy." More like "too *insert lax word* for my own good."
    And there I stood... The devil of a command that featured death...

    If my parents ever called me lazy it was to razz me up and to try and motivate me to do whatever it was they thought I should be doing. It really isn't laziness in a case like that, it is more of "You are doing "A" and I think you should be doing "B" so I will call you lazy to try and motivate you to do as I command." Classic authoritarianism + Psych 101!

    +1, I too am very content with my life and happy with myself. I am the most productive person I know. I run circles around people and do great work. If I'm not into what other people are into then that's no one's problem, just a difference of opinion.

    If someone called me lazy in an effort to denigrate me, especially in front of others, I would pick them up by their feet and mop the floor with their head, and then ask them if I still lazy, or if I should continue cleaning.

And I thought that was the most brilliant reclassification ever.
    Haha I was going to reply to this thread anyway, but in light of this, some elaboration:

    To start, I don't like being called lazy, true or untrue, if it has a negative connotation. I don't like being talked down on. If it's friendly or in jest, than no issue.

    That said, I...

    Make an evaluation as to if the classification is well founded.

    If I am, in fact, simply avoiding clear cut work because I just don't feel like doing it and for no other reasons, than I am lazy. This is problematic if it gets in the way of my goals.

    If I'm being called lazy because I'm not demonstrating immediate 'movement', but I'm instead gathering relevant information/gathering supplies/energy, than I think the claim is unfounded. Running around just to look like you're doing something is stupid. Just hitting "GO" without really knowing what you are trying to do or how to do it is wasteful. Haste makes waste.

    In this situation, I find a way to ignore the person and move on. Sometimes I just have to suck it up and put on the horse and pony show (which wastes energy which I might otherwise use productively) to get the person off my back so I can go back to the info/supplies/energy gathering phase as appropriate.
    ------------------------------------------


    The rebuttal to this is that sometimes you just need to get things going to really figure out (or get some idea of) what you are doing. We're humans, not robots, we are wasteful in this way. I don't always know what I want or how to get it. So I go out and make stuff up until it makes sense.


    So I try not to be lazy. I try to be efficient. It's the way to be.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I wouldn't say I'm efficient, I like to take my time. I just don't understand what all the hullabaloo is about all the time. No one is going to die if I leave dishes in the sink overnight or nap on the couch with the cat all Saturday morning. Sometimes I feel like "non-lazy" people are just running around worrying about a lot of unnecessary tasks.

    Lazy = Cool. It just shows how less work to finish things = more potential.
