Rant Tuesday: Verily, This Lack of Taste Buds Can Turn Bothersome

Lately, I’ve been concerning myself with one of the more innocuous attributes I have: I usually don’t have a strong preference for anything at all. Aside from several choice items in each category, I have no problem with most types of cuisine, movies, art style, women archetype, games, tv shows, music, fashion choices…

I’ve always thought that not having a preference is a good thing, a sign of having tolerance for all the strange differences we possess and not being a bigot about certain beliefs, but lately I’m terrified by it. It’s like not having tastebuds, or not being able to feel pain. If I can’t tell good games or good art from bad, how would I ever arrive at a point where I know I’m making good games or creating good artwork?

I don’t think that sense of preference can ever be learned. If I’m born without it instead of just having to discover or rediscover it, then I think I’ve found something to be afraid of for the rest of my life…
