Even as a kid, when asked what was my favorite color or sports team, I didn’t like this question and folks didn’t like my answer:
They often respond, “You have to pick one.”
“Why? Do you want me to make something up?”
Seth Godin explains my side well here.
Most people agree with me, but have been programmed to pick a favorite and don’t even seem to realize how inconsistent picking a favorite is to their own behavior. They think I’m the crazy one.
