I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Givers and Takers

Basically, two types of people exist: the Givers and Takers. You can usually spot a Taker because once a Taker realizes they can no longer take from you, you never hear from them again. They take as much and for as long as they can, and then forget about you. They don't contact you to see how you're doing, because they don't care how you're doing; they only seem to "care" about you when they think they can, in one way or another, get more from you. 

Takers don't usually prosper, because a person who sows sparingly also reaps sparingly.

In contrast, a Giver doesn't want anything from others; a Giver simply wants to give - because a Giver knows there is more blessing in giving than receiving. (Acts 20:35) A Giver will contact you to see how you're doing, simply because a Giver actually does care about you, and not for what they can get from you.

A Giver is usually prosperous in many ways: cheerful, content, not selfish, has a positive attitude, is outward focused and generally a good person to be around. A Giver is a good person to have as a friend.

Which are you: A Taker or a Giver?

This is the most moronic meme to gain popular traction in a long time and those who espouse it seem to have absolutely no clue of it. It is such a patently false construct that this shouldn't be a surprise, I guess.

Someone doesn't see what is directly in front of his face only when his eyes are closed. Hopefully he is only sleeping , But it's starting to look like some of these folks might actually be dead.

No one becomes enlightened by chanting the mantra of idiocy.

Instead of simply giving us your opinion, which is basically useless, why don't you explain to the rest of us why this "meme" is "moronic," and why it is of a "patently false construct?"

My guess is you won't because you don't possess critical thinking skills and can't actually think for yourself.
