Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
I know people who appear to be very spontaneous. I know that I was much more spontaneous when I was younger than I am now, and I thought at the time that my spontaneity was a positive trait.
But some criticized me for being too impulsive and for not always thinking about the consequences of my actions or decisions. As I grew older, particularly after I became a parent, I tried to be more steadfast, more constant, more purposeful, more reliable.
This got me wondering about the character traits of spontaneity and stability. And that brings me to this week’s provocative question.
Do you consider yourself today to be more of a spontaneous person or more of a stable person? Which characteristic in others, spontaneity or stability, do you prefer? Why?
