As you get older … meet more people, have more experiences … you find yourself ‘grouping’ your life into bite-sized chunks.
We self segment even though in terms of what we are told friendship should be, there probably shouldn’t be any level of separation between them at all … they’re either a friend or they’re not.
Though given I have some stupid rules about when I can define someone as a mate, I’m the last person who should talk.
The reason I say all this is that one of the big things I noticed when I came to Asia was how many people here segmented their lives into micro groups.
For every big group, there’s a bunch of subsets such as:
School friends who like to party.
School friends who are foodies.
School friends who work in similar industries.
OK, I’m generalising and I’m also not explaining my point at all – mainly because I’m not sure what it is, but I know there is one somewhere – but that aside, all this post was actually trying to do was to justify this photo …
… even though what it actually shows is how the Government segments their industry rather than how their people segment their networks.
And for the record, I’m still looking for the ‘advertising practitioners’ hospital in China, though something tells me it might end up being this.
