Trios, Triads, and Triplets 2

A triangle is a closed figure that uses the least amount of sides. My wife and I found that there are several groupings of terms that always seem to come in threes that we call Triads. Here are ten triads from our list:
  • Animal, Vegetable, Mineral
  • Earth, Wind, and Fire
  • Executive, Legislative, and Judicial
  • Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh
  • Height, Width, Depth
  • Land, Sea, and Sky
  • Red, White, and Blue
  • Rock, Paper, Scissors
  • Small, Medium, Large
  • Solid, Liquid, Gas

If you have others, I encourage you to comment to add to our list.

I thought the world was binary! Good and evil! True and false! Dropping one shoe and the other!

That's more like the Dichotomy of Chicago Character where things are more of a dualism instead.
