Who are low info people? “Low Info People”( LIPs) are people who don’t know, or care to research anything past the headline of a story. And what’s worse, are the LIPs who don’t even know they are living the HEADLINE lifestyle. In the age of instant access to in-depth information, no one should be a LIP. Before I go any further, let me clarify that I’m not saying you need to know EVERYTHING, but at least know enough to make an educated decision.
A quick way to identify a LIP is if they’re always expecting everything in unrealistic time-frames. Great example are those who supported President Obama in 2008 and expected him to change the world overnight. And when he didn’t or rather, he couldn’t because of an obstructive congress, LIPs started having “buyer’s remorse”. If only they had just took the time to inform themselves on how much the President accomplished although the economy was completely fu*Ked up when he took office, and how committed the opposition was (and still is) to stop him from doing ANYTHING, they would have understood that NO ONE could have reached their expectations in three years.
I can go on for days identifying LIPs but as usual I’ll keep my report short. But let’s be honest. Based on the examples above, I ask; are you a LIP? Do you often go with whatever someone tells you, or do you research it? Do expect a lot in an unrealistic timeframe? Remember I’m asking you to be honest… Do you have the LIP disease? If you do, do you want to get rid of it? Then know that the problem is not only having the disease but if you’re not trying to get cured. There’s a poster I had made and posted on a wall of Ugly Radio’s studio that reads – I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING BUT I KNOW ENOUGH TO GET AN “A”… Translation, I’m not a LIP because I do my homework. Doing homework is the ONLY medicine for the LIP disease… So STAY INFORM and KEEP IT UGLY!
