The Nature Of Ants and Grasshoppers

Hmm .... somehow have this observation made from encounters in the cyber world and from fellow colleagues.

When we see older Ants still busy collecting foods; they are likely to be married with children.

When we see older Grasshoppers still dancing in the Rain; they are likely to be singles.

Chun bo?


  1. Hello CW, I think that is an accurate observation. I feel that married folks with children hardly have time (and occasionally money) for themselves, let alone dance in the rain. When one partner is a Grasshopper, the other is likely to have a more challenging life.

    My personal opinion.

  2. Quite Chun.

    Unless the grasshopper is enjoying his life to the fullest while they are young; else they may feel lonely when they are old..... but some of them still very Kiam Siap.

    No offend to anyone out there... just an observation.

  3. My cohort of friends with teenage/young adult children are mostly grasshoppers mindset to travel the world. But they downgrade to not having a car or downgrade to HDB.

  4. Of course if i have no kid even if i am an ant, i will change to a grasshopper sooner or later.

    Actually it is not really the case or the truth.
    i have a kid only after on the 12th year of my marriage.
    i did not live live like a grasshopper then .
    Maybe a little, yes.
    But i still worry about "Money Not Enough".

  5. CW,

    Its a state of mind. I see it as something we are born with; not something we learned.

    The best clue to who we really are is to observe our behaviours when we are very young - preferably primary school or before ;)

    In the Nature vs Nurture debate, I tend to side with Nature.

    But if I'm making a living as a snake-oil selling courses, I would definitely say its Nurture!


    And yes, I'll never say anyone can make it in investing or trading - a big portion of the Mind part of the 3 Ms is what we are born with ;)
