I love these people, mainly because I wish I was good at it.
Categorisors are those people who look at a big list of topics, or a whole book of the bible, or listen to a 3hr conversation… and then they say something like, “So we’ve really been looking at these 4 issues… etc.”
Now, just because you’ve met someone who tries to do that, doesn’t mean they have this amazing gift. A true gifting of the categorisation spirit is on display when, and only when, the topics/categories they put forward are perfect.
Everyone in the room/discussion hears those categories and visibly sighs with relief because they can finally hang all their thoughts on some hooks. The categories just fit everything so perfectly. The buckets just seem so perfect everyone kicks themselves for not seeing it before.
Keep these gifted-people close and use their gift for the glory of God!
