What are ‘Pancake people’?

June 2012

These are people who read widely, but not in depth.  They can tell you about everything – the latest films, the next big fitness craze or the subject of last week’s Prime Minister Questions.  But ask them to explain any of these in detail and they struggle to find an answer.  It’s OK to be interested in different topics, but try picking a few that really interest you and read around them.  In the long run you’ll be a more well-rounded person.



So, being widely-read isn’t necessarily a positive quality.  Sometimes it just means that you know a whole load about nothing in particular.
