the three types of shit

by eesur on January 10, 2011

According to Fritz Perls (1893–1970), founder of the Gestalt school of psychology, there are three kinds of shit you are likely to run into while talkng with people:

  1. Chicken-shit is clichéd small talk, devoid of actual information content, small talk that avoids emotional contact.
  2. Bull-shit refer to out-and-out lies. All lies are told for one of three reasons: to conceal the truth and wrong-doing, to protect someone, and/or in order to gain (money, prestige, sex, etc.).
  3. Elephant-shit refers to grandiose plans that avoid confronting reality and responsibility. For example, telling people what you’ll do when you when the lottery

Chicken-shitters are fearful of human contact and often harbour secrets. Bull-shitters are opportunists. Elephant-shiters are full of plans that have no hope of ever coming true.

Everyday we have a choice of the shit we do and say:

Ego:”I’m the shit” < Humility:”Your the Shit”
Lust:”Fuck the shit out that ass” < Passion:”Fuck the shit out of that … intimately.” Or for the celibates and singles “Stay away from that Shit”
Anger:”I’m gonna kick the Shit out of you” < Compassion:”Couldn’t give a shit”
Attachment:”This is my Shit!” < Non-attachment:“Who gives a Shit?”
Greed:“Give me your Shit” < Charity:“Want some of this shit?”

saved by shit

A guy was in an unfamiliar bar, and unfortunately managed to knock the drink of an unfriendly biker. He apologised to the biker and immediately offered to get him another. It was no use, the biker had stood up and started firing abuse about the damage he was going to do to him.

Well the guy shits himself, literally. But he was spontaneous—he stuck is hand down his pants and grabbed some of his own shit and through it at the biker. The biker was stunned & horrified. He no longer wanted to be anywhere near the guy and his aggression turned to disgust. The guy used this as his window to get out of there.

The guy had use what means he had (imaginatively and in the moment) to defend himself and avoid any further confrontation. Great and viable method if you are ever confronted whilst vulnerable using a public toilet, your own shit is much more disgusting to others.

shit oneself

We always evade it, fear comes up but we have never been told it’s natural. Instead of exploring it and delving into it, we try to suppress it, run from it, and intern we shit ourselves. The very avoidance of it brings tension and often more fear:

What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it. — J. Krishnamurti

Where does it arise from? What happens when you face it? What is the worst that can happen? Does being fearful change the outcome? Going through fear we become fearless.

this is the highest of all philosophies—it’s not done by you, it happens:

Events happen, deeds are done, but there is no individual doer. — Buddha

it’s all a proccess out of our control, can we shit whenever we choose? hold it for how long? if we can’t control out shit what can we control

let’s talk shit

Whatever we say, it can only be an expression—just shit. That doesn’t mean that that’s a bad thing—just as shit isn’t a bad thing. Great things grow from good shit and with this on-line expression of our shit, may some beautiful smelling ideas and concepts flower until they have done their job— until they are ready to be digested.
