Reducing those words to something more succinct produces this.

Having done all this analysis work I had hoped that this would unite people behind a common definition since it was they who had effectively created it - I added nothing of my own views and only took, analysed and structured what people had said.

I was wrong. So wrong!

Having arrived at this definition, I then posted a link back to the discussion to a poll where I tabled this definition and asked people if they

¨      Strongly Disagree

¨      Somewhat Disagree

¨      Neither Agree Nor Disagree

¨      Somewhat Agree

¨      Strongly Agree

Out of the 278 people that supplied the 374 definitions, only 15 took the time to vote in the poll. And out of those, most (82%) either disagreed or sat on the fence.

There are various possible reasons why this occurred but I think it illustrates one certain truth - people love to disagree more than they love to agree. You might disagree!
