    Default Lets handle our blind spots

    I feel this is an important topic, so I'm introducing a format for handling this.

    We all have blind spots, and we're sometimes agitated, frustrated or just depressed for having them incapacitate us. We have a clue there are such things. We have a guess of what it might be. We guess how they might affect us, but we don't know for sure.

    In this thread, I'll have everyone wishing outsider help to expose what they think of their blind spots, with a specific format: I wish that each person is discussed for a maximum of 10 posts, by any person. A particular type of blind spot may be discussed for more time, but I'd ask everyone to give attention to different people and their circumstances, and try to give a quicker decision to each person's situation (hoping for a satisfying answer, even if it's just a partial answer). This applies to both the person with the blind spot, and the advisor(s).

    I'm hoping this will help as many people as possible without concentrating too much on any one person. This kind of format can't change anyone's life long patterns in a moment, but it can point to a new direction.

    Questions?

    Great! We have an advisor on board.

    Wish to have your blind spots examined?

    Will I have to be the one starting with my own blind spots?

    My threads seem to die out fastest when I start with discussion about myself.

    Only crazy people talk to themselves. *looks around suspiciously*

    So, we are talking about ourselves, other people, what? What is your definition of blind spot?

    I don't have any blind spots, but since I am a Jaguar I have plenty of visible spots.
    Does that count?

    Blind spot is a phenomenom from our ability to notice and evaluate things. Not all measurement tools are very specific to all kinds of occurences.

    We try to notice the most important things. Hence, we quickly dismiss the unimportant.

    Dismissing the unimportant too long adjusts our perception, our thought and our decisions. We enforce the notion of the unimportant being unimportant, because we don't develop our skill to notice it. This becomes our blind spot.

    A blind spot might develop from something that hurts us, too.

    "I think I have the attribute X. People who say X is bad are so different from me, I just know I should'nt listen to them."

    You have 155 threads and roughly 1,600 posts. That's about 10 posts per thread. Afraid you might be blindsided?

    ok. hit me with your median shot. not your best
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
