More Illustrations Cleverly Reveal the Two Kinds of People There Are in the World

There are two types of people in this world: those who eat the pizza crust and those that leave it on the plate; or, someone who prefers a Kindle while another loves getting lost in the pages of a book. The world is full of these opposing groups of people, and depending on who you ask, they're either doing things the “right” way or the “wrong” way. Illustrator Joo Rocha highlights this quirky anomaly with his clever Tumblr called 2 Kinds of People, which shows the tiny ways in which people are different.

When we featured Rocha's work last year, we were amused by his side-by-side comparisons and have been following them ever since. They're stylistically simple, yet brilliant in the emotion they're able to provoke. You might've never realized your strong opinion on toilet paper orientation or condiment application until you saw how someone else does it. Although there's no wholly correct solution, it sure feels like there is.

So, which type of person are you?
