There are broadly three kinds of blarpers.

The first kind aren't necessarily blarpers, but get their kicks out of doing it anyway.

The second kind blarp for a living, which is ironic in itself.

The third kind are arguably the best blarpers, but sadly don't earn as much as the second kind.

Now tell me what blarping is?

Is the type of product they sell/market relevant?

If so, type of product...

...education?
...transportation?
...health care?
...entertainment?
...electronics?
...tickets to an event? sporting event?

Is the product they are selling generally bought by...

...individuals?
...companies?
...governments?

Are they involved in...

...talking directly to customers? to customers individually? or giving a presentation to a large group?
...producing ads? newspaper ads? TV ads? direct mail ads?

Is the type of product they sell/market relevant? VERY!

If so, type of product...

...education?
...transportation?
...health care?
...entertainment?
...electronics?
...tickets to an event? sporting event? All of these are either irrelevant or very misleading, so no to all

Is the product they are selling generally bought by...

...individuals? I would guess it's more of these
...companies?
...governments?

Are they involved in...

...talking directly to customers? Guess so to customers individually? I suppose or giving a presentation to a large group?
...producing ads? newspaper ads? TV ads? direct mail ads? Depends on the way they market their product, but TV ads very unlikely

Does the job involve music? sound? death? killing? None of these

Do they market their product with samples of it? Maybe, but IRR

Why are we stuck on the second kind's job description :-D? They simply blarp professionally. The job approach is unlikely to lead you to it. Try and explore what blarping could be, generally...

Well, the asking about the job description was a way of trying to figure out what blarping is, but if you say that won't work...

Does "blarping" involve selling a physical product? a service? do they personally make the product (or provide the service) that they are selling?

Is blarping illegal? Is it commonly considered immoral?

Does it involve love? Sex? Having children? Marriage?

Well, the asking about the job description was a way of trying to figure out what blarping is, but if you say that won't work... Well, that's because blarping isn't commonly though of as a 'job' :-)

Does "blarping" involve selling a physical product? Yes a service? do they personally make the product (or provide the service) that they are selling? No they do not make it

Is blarping illegal? Is it commonly considered immoral? Neither

Does it involve love? Sex? Having children? Marriage? None of these

Is the "product" normally given away for free? is it normally something you have to buy? that you have to pay money for?

Do you think it's ironic that people blarp professionally because...

...blarping was originally intended to be something done just for entertainment, with no making of money involved?
...selling the "product" defeats the whole purpose of blarping?

Is the title "Ants mimic us" relevant? If so, which of the following ant behaviors is most relevant:

...Gathering food?
...Mating/Reproduction?
...Building an anthill?
...Herd behavior? Everyone contributing to the same goal?
...Fighting off predators? Hiding from predators?
...Sacrificing oneself to save the rest?

Is the "product" normally given away for free? Haha, you'll realise why I'm laughing at this question when you see the spoiler :-D but a non-misleading answer would be No is it normally something you have to buy? that you have to pay money for? Yes to these, still laughing :-D

Do you think it's ironic that people blarp professionally because...

...blarping was originally intended to be something done just for entertainment, with no making of money involved? Yope, still laughing
...selling the "product" defeats the whole purpose of blarping? Haha bang on with this one :-D

Is the title "Ants mimic us" relevant? tangentially If so, which of the following ant behaviors is most relevant:

...Gathering food? Vaguely this, but don't give it too much thought
...Mating/Reproduction?
...Building an anthill?
...Herd behavior? Everyone contributing to the same goal?
...Fighting off predators? Hiding from predators?
...Sacrificing oneself to save the rest?

Sorry missed this:

Is the 'physical product' an object? Yes If yes, then is it electronic? No non-living? Yes
What material is it? Paper? wood? metal? This one almost always rubber? plastic? stone? liquid? Could be in a few cases wood or stone or something like.

Does "bang on with this one" mean "yes"?

Do the people in the first group sell the products for money? how about the second group? the third group? Do the second group of blarpers operate on their own or are they usually employees of a store? Is the product something you can normally buy in a store?

Is the product some kind of award? or other kind of recognition? is it a trophy? something related to sports?

******** SPOILER *********

Blarping is Numismatics.

There are broadly three kinds of Numismatists.

The first group chiefly derive pleasure from the simple ownership of monetary devices and studying these coins as private amateur scholars. In the classical field amateur collector studies have achieved quite remarkable progress in the field. Examples are Walter Breen is a well-known example of a noted numismatist who was not an avid collector, and King Farouk I of Egypt was an avid collector who had very little interest in numismatics. Harry Bass by comparison was a noted collector who was also a numismatist.

The second group are the coin dealers. These often called professional numismatists authenticate or grade coins for commercial purposes. The buying and selling of coin collections by numismatists who are professional dealers advances the study of money, and expert numismatists are consulted by historians, museum curators, and archaeologists.

The third category are scholar numismatics working in public collections, universities or as independent scholars acquiring knowledge about monetary devices, their systems, their economy and their historical context. Coins are especially relevant as source in the pre-modern period.

Thanks for playing along!

NICE one!! Numismatics wasn't close to even one of my wild guesses :-). Damn... I knew I should've taken the title more seriously!
