3rd Class people talk about persons
2nd Class people talk about incidents
1st Class people talk about thoughts
Where we should place ourselves?

Can you not see people as people?
jain - It sounds like you're referencing the heirarchical theory of evolutionary survival (was it Maitloff?) very often used as the standard for marketing. It posits that people are categorized into one of these three levels based on their immediate needs. The first (your 3rd) needs only to survive so their thought centers around the basics, the second has evolved to the point of having creature comforts, and the last (your 1st) has nothing to worry about. Their thoughts, therefore, can be on ethereal subjects like philosoply, art, ethics, etc. All these studies help marketers target their customers correctly. Or at least that's what they think.
I've heard something similiar to this before:
Small people talk about other people
Average people talk about material things
Great people talk about ideas
I think there's some sense to that. Many people really do only talk about other people. They don't appear to discuss ideas or thought processes. We should all endevour to be inquisitive about life.
