Spot the post-modernist

They are in every meeting, every classroom, every party. The post-modernists. The first sign of post-modernism is typically to draw multiple distinctions before even attempting to answer any given question. For every suggestion, the post-modernist will present a number of pros and cons without ever getting around to making a decision. If pressed to come to a conclusion, the post-modernist will usually settle on declaring the issue to be complex  one. A post-modernist’s favorite role is devil’s advocate,  and if that fails, irony will be the last resort. At parties, simply avoid the post-modernist.  For all other situations, check back for my post about how to deal with them. Suggestions are also very welcome.
