Knowing a lot about a little

A week or so ago, somebody on Twitter asked this question: “Are you the type of person who knows a lot about a little or a little about a lot?” I’m definitely the type who knows a a lot about a little.

I find no satisfaction in knowing bits and pieces of information. I must know and understand the journey.

That’s why I’m not a big highlight guy when it comes to sports. I don’t care what the score was if I don’t know how the score got that way. Who scored? How did he score? What were the circumstances?What sort of resistance did he face? What is his story? Did he overcome something? What did he do when he wasn’t scoring? What are his strengths and weaknesses and how were both on display throughout the game?

When I know the story and the background, then I care. Otherwise, I don’t even look at the scoreboard.

Sometimes people ask me my opinion about a certain event going on in the news and I am not even aware of it. It’s not because I don’t care about the news or about what’s going on around me. I just can’t comprehend it all, so I take smaller bites.

So, what type of person are you? Do you know a lot about a little or a little about a lot?
