‘She says that everyone there wants to make them [think-pictures], and people who can’t do it much work hard to get better at it.’” (p.145). Finally there is a group who accepts the main characters as they come. In fact, those who aren’t as strong as ‘thinkers’ work hard to become better at it in order to have stronger connections with the people around them. This brings hope to not only the group but also the readers.
Annie Dillard’s essay “Sight into Insight” emphasizes how one must live in the moment and not sway towards others opinions in order to gain accurate observations on a situation. She uses nature as a prominent theme in her essay to represent the thought of looking past the superficial obvious in order to go deeper to where the hidden beauty rests. Dillard wants the reader to realize in order to observe clearly you have to live in the moment and let go of the knowledge you think you know on the situation. Dillard uses the example of her “walking with a camera vs walking without one” (para.31) and how her own observations differed with each. When she walked with the camera she “read the light” (para.31), and when she didn’t “light printed” (para.31).

The narrator is certain that the ability to see is everything and puts no effort into seeing anything beyond the surface.

The narrator is resentful of the connection that
In the article,”Does Talking About Emotions Influence Eyewitness Memory?,” it discusses the way emotions can affect the memory of a witness of a crime. Having two witnesses of the same crime can result in different memories due to the person’s way of thinking. The different ways that you ask questions can affect the results of how the witness can recall a crime.

They show participants emotional video clips and interview them alone and as a group to see if their stories change.
Thus, the narrator, indirectly or directly, provides a pathway into a character’s consciousness. The ability to get into the mind of a character gives the reader an opportunity to perform a psychoanalysis, which becomes invaluable in determining the source of a character’s personality
A. In order to clarify the terms which we will be using throughout our description, we can start exposing what mindreading means. This term is generally understood to mean encompasses the ability to read other´s minds, that is, being able to apprehend (infer?) mental states (desires, feelings, aims, thoughts) different of our own. One example of mental state is false belief, which can be explained as a wrong assumption held by someone.
“Every Body’s Talking” The human body speaks so loudly, but it is rarely ever distinguished. One could discern so much about a person simply based on their body language, human behavior presents a certain algorithm that can be decoded, but only to the ones who pay attention. Joe Navarro know this all too well and distinguishes his bias in his article, “Every Body’s Talking.” Being a former FBI informant, dealing particularly in counterintelligence and profiling, Navarro holds a strong presence within his field of study.
Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist speaks about how body language affects us and how other people see us. She has shown how confidence can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain. Social Scientist look how our body language reflects on our judgement. Those judgements predict really meaningful life outcomes such as, who we hire, who we promote or who we ask out on a date. Nani a researcher showed that when we watch a silent 30 second clip of real physician patient interaction, the judgement of the physician niceness will determine if the physician will get sued or not.
The faces provided should match the witness’ description of the perpetrator rather than the suspect. Rather than giving a long time for the witness to ponder, construct new descriptions of the perpetrator, and thus choose the one they believe seems the most suspicious, they should be given just a few seconds so they must rely on their intuition. This is the speeded confidence procedure, in which they also rate their confidence on the answer chosen. Overall, although eyewitness testimonies have been suggested to be very unreliable, by using these techniques and procedures, the validity of the testimonies can be improved and it can be changed to include minimal bias.
In their 1986 study, they aimed to investigate the accuracy of eyewitness testimony to a real crime, in response to leading questions. They also wanted to examine the issues raised by laboratory research, so to disprove Loftus and Palmer’s (1974) study on the topic. The participants used were 13 eyewitnesses of a real gun shooting incident in Vancouver, Canada. A thief had entered a gun shop, and tied up the owner, so to steal the money and guns from the shop. Once the thief had left the shop, the owner managed to free himself and attain a revolver.
Knowledge, something that’s necessary for every human being, whether it’s for survival or simply understanding something, is defined as the awareness or familiarity gained by the experiences and familiarity of a fact or situation. There are times when only knowing the surface of a certain topic, such as a person’s religion or faith, will most definitely help that beholder to maintain the high level of confidence, but this can also go in a different way: the more a person knows about a certain topic, the lower their confidence level will be; and so, this particular type of situation will ultimately create doubts within oneself. Skepticism is dependent on the amount of knowledge that we gain and retain, and this can be shown through psychology,
