    again, of course I did. I decided what I like in a writer and like who writes the way I like.

    But all that's based on how your brain is already hardwired.

    I don't typically perform a technical diagnostic of my 'definitions' before hand. I take the question, give my answer, and then look back on why I gave that answer.

    I would say that 'abnormal' to me is anything which stands out or catches the eye. In general, 2 people of the same sex kissing catches attention, just as I take notice every single time I encounter a southpaw.

    I can't say I'm using a given set of parameters, it's more of a gut reaction then a well thought out technical dissertation.

    How did you decide what you like?

    I do too! And then I wonder. Do I notice because so few are left-handed, or because I am?

    I notice because I am, and I further note what kind of pen they're using. Being close to the problems lefties deal with every day makes me sensitive to it. I imagine that if I were right handed, that writing in general would be a non-issue, and I probably might not notice left handers.

    I'm a lefty too. I also notice other left handed people and for some reason I observe how they hold their pen/pencil.

    Because I decided long ago that I like those that write like we speak rather than write to make themselves seem more intelligent. This is easy to recognize and I appreciate it. Next question? I can go all day....

    That was still based on your preferences, could you conciously like a bunch of elitist, pretentious authors?
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    You answered my question with the same statement. I asked you how you decided and you answered "I decided". Let me rephrase the question: how did know that you liked these writers?
