I've discovered two subsets of the set of all people. I do they think are well defined, meaning that every element in the set of all people can be categorised as belonging to either one of the two sets. One must bear in mind that this isn't the only way to clarify people. One set is defined as the set of all people who adopt 'typical' mindsets. A typical mindset is the mindset behind actions which are based on a simplistic understanding of the individual themself and the world around them. They do not concern themselves much with figuring out a model for how they are and the world around them is. They just work hard and their tastes aren't carefully and selectively chosen and encouraged. Let's call this set the set of all typicals, or the typical set. The other set is the set of all individuals who act, if at all they do, on more complex, nonlinear models of themselves and the world. The models involved are not necessarily more accurate descriptions, just more complex. Let's call this set the set of all intellectuals, or the intellectual set.
Which attitude towards life is more fulfilling, the typical, or the intellectual?
In other words, people belonging to which of the two sets, on average, lead more fulfilling lives? Fulfilling does not necessarily imply happier too.
What is your opinion and justifications for it?
