Move along

In any social trend, there are phases and groups. There are the groundbreakers, the early adopters, the mainstream adopters, the sticks-in-the-mud. The average person probably spends most of his or her time in the middle groups, but probably also has areas of interest or disinterest that swing them into groundbreaking and sticking in the mud.

It's easy for me to see places where I'm a stick in the mud, but harder to see any where I'm a groundbreaker. Is this common? Do you see yourself as a groundbreaker about anything? If so, what? If almost-but-not-quite, what keeps you from it? What about stick-in-the-mud-ness? Is that easier or harder for you to see?
