The Fifth Humor- The Scruplic

Occasionally there are are news items and/or articles that may even give the Bouncy Banker pause for thought. Thought is something all bouncy bankers might work on, might meditate on, like a koan. Thinking and, come to think of it, feeling, are both much neglected as koans in the financial world. These both require scruples, the fifth and mostly forgotten humor, the other four being: choleric, melancholic, phlegmatic and sanguine. Bankers lack the fifth humor. They lack good humor so need to put work in to the other four departments as well. They have plenty of bad humor, guffaws, smarmy smirks and so forth, but I believe there could be an all round improvement in their behavior if only they would concentrate on the fifth humor as defined by me, that is to say the scruplic. I may be the first to ever have employed this word as I am the inventor of the fifth humor.

For article that might exercise the fifth humor in bankers see next post, the Not So Bouncy Banker.
