This seems to be a perennially relevant and evolving list. In "Minding the 'P's' for Cues," an article in Communities magazine back in Summer 2009 (issue #143), Laird Schaub lays out the following "Ps" as "the most popular potholes in the pavement to paradise": Pets Progeny Parenting Power Parking Pesticides Prejudice Parties in public space Picking up after one another And he adds this of "the most potent group polarities": Process versus Product Public versus Private Policing versus Permissiveness Purity versus Plurality Privilege versus Parity Positive thinking versus Pessimism Passive versus Participatory Polite versus Potty-mouthed Passionate versus Phlegmatic Pausing versus Precipitous response Propriety versus Promiscuity Prepared versus Playful Pass lessons versus Present needs There is even more to this article, a large portion of whose words also start with "p." (For those who want to read the whole thing, it and the rest of the issue are available free in digital form to all current Communities subscribers, and also for purchase at https://simplecirc.com/communities/item/2446/communities-143-summer-2009-ecology-and-community.)

I think I heard a list from Jim Snyder-Grant of New View Cohousing (Acton , MA) that included more P's. Progeny (= Parenting) Pennies (= Money) Puffing (= Smoking)
