Do you consider yourself easily categorisable?

Do you consider yourself easily categorisable?


This joke was made by @qntm on twitter recently. At least I am pretty sure that this was meant as a joke.

The humor lies in the fact that you really can't honestly answer "no" to this question. For one thing, answering this question is categorizing yourself, and if you have a hard time doing that, then immediately it is done for you (the answer is "no").

The fact that the act of having a hard time doing something causes the thing to complete makes the thing easy, and so the answer is therefore "yes".

It is sort of like the video game "Rampage", where if your giant monster takes too long to punch down the buildings, a guy walks over and plants a bomb under them which blows them up for you. It makes it hard to lose.
