Just a short thread and a title, inspired by a "inkstain" psychometric test I stumbled upon years ago. One of the questions asked - did you ignore any parts of the whole to decide upon an interpretation?
As insignificant as it may seem, today I hold that to great significance. I'm thinking myself, what do I ignore from the whole to make my interpretation of the whole?
By the whole, I mean my total experience as a human.
I guess I'm ignoring some of the details, some of the inner meaning and some of the emotional content of the whole. It varies. It doesn't mean I ignore everything of the said indiscriminately. I'd say I ignore them at will. I'd say I ignore bad emotions at will..
but.. details are different. I never, ever, never ignore details willfully, as in, "this detail tells all my theories are wrong, so I dismiss it". That never happens. Rather, details reign over theory, for me. Rather, I sometimes think - "this detail doesn't add to any of my theories, nor does it throw any of my theories off balance, so I'll just dismiss it".
So what do I ignore? I guess, bad emotions, and useless details.
What do you ignore from your total experience as a human to make up your world?
