The Last Word (almost)

Almost-Dispassionate

When someone is completely neutral, indifferent, detached, and unruffled about everything, we say they are dispassionate. When someone's emotions get the better of them (when an idea grips the meat), we say that the person has become passionate. But almost-everyone spends almost-all their time being almost-dispassionate about almost-everything.


Types/Categories:

1. Somewhat interested: Involved. Focused. Concerned. Expectant.

2. Somewhat annoyed: Alerted. Bothered. Troubled.


Examples:

almost-dispassionate

Just doing yer job.


almost-dispassionate

Instinct, good eyesight, and nothing better to do. Just a little bit hungry. Or, needing to prove something to yourself.
