A traveler fell into a deep pit and couldn’t get out. Several persons came along and saw him struggling in the pit.

The sensitive person said, "I feel for you down there."

The reflective person said, "It’s logical that someone would fall into the pit."

The aesthetic person said, "I can give you ideas on how to decorate your pit."

The judgmental person said, "Only bad people fall into the pit."

The analytical person said, "Help me measure the depth of your pit."

The curious person said, "Tell me how you fell into the pit."

The perfectionist said, "I believe you deserve your pit."

The evaluator said, "Tell me, are you paying taxes on this pit."

The self-pitying person said, "You should have seen my pit."

The specialist in meditation said, "Just relax and don’t think about the pit."

The optimist said, "Cheer up! Things could be worse."

The pessimist said, "Be prepared! Things will get worse."

Jesus, seeing the man, took him by the hand and lifted him out of the miserable pit.
