The Migrant to Amigrant Scale

I was thinking that one scale, one way to think about different people distributed along it, is what I might term the Migrant to Amigrant Scale.

On this scale, Migrants would be those who tend to respond to adverse situations they face by:

1) Changing themselves,

2) Trying to change the situation or

3) Migrating to somewhere less adverse.

Amigrants tend to respond to adverse situations by:

1) Not changing themselves,

2) Not trying to change their situation but preferring to complain about their situation or even better toblame others for it and

3) Not moving to less adverse places; and greatly resenting those who do.

And it is a sliding scale between Very Migrant to Very Amigrant, rather than a grouping of humanity into two separate groups, which not be a Migrant thing to do. 🙂
