We've always known that U2 are the most amazing band on the planet, but what exactly makes them so damn perfect? Coincidentally I was just talking to a friend about this yesterday. We both agreed that all four members bring something so unique and different to the table, and together they just make magic.

That's why last night, I was absolutely blown away when my sister came to me with a paper from her literature class. On it were the 4 "humors" or "personalities" according to Elizabethan theology. It seemed to describe EXACTLY why U2 is so amazing...

According to Elizabethan Psychology, the IDEAL STATE occurs when all 4 humors (personalities) are in proper proportion to the others.

As I read through each of them, I was instantly shocked to realize just how perfectly each description described EVERY member of U2.

You have The Talker, The Thinker, The Doer, and The Watcher. Does that NOT describe all of them to a T??? I'm still thoroghly freaked out by this as I sit typing this, I just can't get over how insane this is. Take a look for yourself...

I had to stop a few times and just shake my head as I read through those. They almost PERFECTLY describe each one of them.

Does that not freak you the hell OUT? Maybe it's just me, but damn... now we have proof according to ancient theology that U2 is, infact, perfect.
