Bad Futurists

(via https://medium.com/futures-exchange/493715a01106 )

So, to the list, then. The typical bad futurists start from one of the following nine archetypes, and then mix-and-match aspects of the others. The list, in no particular order:

  1. The Obfuscator/Obscurantist
  2. The Shock-Jock
  3. The Mindless Optimist/Pessimist
  4. The Pseudo-Academic
  5. The Trendster
  6. The Neologizer
  7. The Cookie-Cutter
  8. The Proselytizer
  9. The Mystic
