    PESSIMISM

    Chisholm effect-basic laws of frustration, mishap, and delay

    1st law of human interaction. If anything can go wrong, it will.

    Corollary: If anything just can't go wrong, it will anyway.

     

    2nd law. When things are going well, something will go wrong.

    Corollary: When things just can't get any worse, they will.

    Corollary 2: Anytime things appear to be going better, you have overlooked something.

    3rd law. Purposes, as understood by the purposer, will be judged otherwise by others. Corollary: If you explain so clearly that nobody can misunderstand, somebody will. Corollary 2: If you do something which you are sure will meet with everybody's approval, somebody won't like it. Corollary 3: Procedures devised to implement the purpose won't quite work. Corollary 4: No matter how long or how many times you explain, no one is listening.

    "The Chisholm Effect," Motive Magazine, 1963.
