I have to say something about this this article because the book they’re reviewing is similar (in theory) to the kind of books that Thom Hawkins, one of the major characters in Salvation writes. The authors of the book have identified six different attitudes about the concept of “time,” and they say that the category in which you fall can have a lot to do with your happiness and success.
I took the quiz attached to the article, and the results were contradictory. Apparently, I’m both more likely and less likely to be depressed, aggressive, and conscientious and to use drugs or alcohol. Hmm.
I took the quiz again imagining Thom’s POV, and he was more consistent–that’s a fictional character for you.
