When I'm talking to people or reading posts in a forum or reading opinion pieces in news articles or just about anything I can almost immediately identify the scripts or filters which are at play in the communication.
I find it really remarkable how few people I find are not like a living version of an internet meme on some topics, while others it is not so much a topical thing but how they are, the topic could change but the same "accents" or interpretations etc. will exhibit themselves again and again. This is something, which looking back at journals I kept from years ago, I would myself have engaged in, although not always without knowing, sometimes just because it was easier and it was a sort of lazy cognition. Although the fact was that then and now I could not have been easily or completely satisfied with it. Even in others, to a greater or lesser extent, it bothers me, particularly if those same people are going to be in positions of power or decision making responsibility, and virtually everyone is from time to time.
My questions for this thread are do you ever experience this yourself? When you do does it provoke any sort of response in yourself? Are you just inclined to shrug and say, "yeah, sure, nice that you feel that way", or do you want to correct some error you perceive? Does it make you feel resigned or disappointed or is it just one of those things doesnt bother you but confirms some generalisations or thinking of your own?
