You Are Not as Poly or Mono As You Think

Locks on relationships - locks on a fence

The interesting suggestion that people are just not as poly or mono as they think, was made a few days back and really got my attention. I suspect that is because it’s fundamentally true in most cases.

The human ability to hold and evaluate multiple incompatible concepts, philosophical views and beliefs never ceases to amaze me, it defines what it is to be human in my opinion.
