When we observe actions and/or emotions of someone else our brain will mirror this action and/or emotion. I found this concept interesting, because it made me think of the word, empathy. Many people feel as though they are empathetic, however, are not actually understanding the feelings of someone else, relating to the mirror fallacy. The mirror fallacy, continues by stating that people can only truly be mirroring when they have the exact same body and brain as the other does; this is hard to determine depending on the person. Therefore, the concept of mirroring can definitely mislead us, making us feel as though we are experiencing the same action and/or emotion as another, even if they are feeling the total opposite way.
Moreover, those points are just not persuasive enough for people to really believe in themselves. Even though we can act with virtue while knowing about it, we can still practice it to make the world a better place. We can act virtuously to lead by example for society so that others will try to be more virtuous also. What I mean by this is that we can try to make people better people that will make them happy. People being naturally conceded also is not persuasive because everyone has different personalities, meaning that nobody is truly the same.
(Voltaire 61) Candide said “So you have already bee to Paraguay?” , then Cacambo replies “Indeed I have,” (Voltaire 62) Having to know Cacambo is what got him to Paraguay and to reach the Colonel. In doing so, he met Cunegonde’s brother. Just because you think you are stronger than everybody, does not mean you can overcome them.
As a human sometimes we come come across ideas in our head that seem so right or perfect at some points but in reality they are so wrong in different ways, as it is life we also seem to stumble into thing in our path. Sometimes I think of doing somethings that in my mind they play out right but as soon as someone else hears them they think of them stupid and I would listen but; Chris did not even want to listen to the advice that was given to him and thought he was smarter and more knowledgeable. I agree Callarman when he said that “Chris makes a lot of mistakes based on arrogance”.
Neither one of the mind-sets are perfect they both make mistakes. The differences between the two mind-sets have a very wide variety. A fixed mind-set person isn’t very willing to learn because they are afraid they will be judged by their mistakes but someone with a growth min-set is always willing to learn even though they have to correct their mistakes “effort is a positive thing for them.” People with a fixed mind-set also have the tendency to hide their mistakes which often get them in more trouble than they were already in. In my opinion the growth mind-set would be more beneficial to someone because they have more opportunities to learn new things unlike those with the fixed mind-set.
However, emotion can play a major role in creating bias. As explained above, conviction is not sufficient enough knowledge for a claim to be validated because of the way of knowing, emotion. This is because as humans are born, the id is the first part of the brain developed and it supposedly controls emotion, while the part of the brain which controls reason, the ego, comes at a later stage in life. Based off of this, an average human is much more familiar and much more comfortable following its emotion. This is why a bias is formed because even if the logic or evidence supports the claim that you do not agree with, you may still convict someone of wrongdoing.
Numerous stereotypes are ignorant ideas of those who are different than they are. In the above cases, it would degrade and offend people to be stereotyped based on your location. People are stereotyped every day, not just on the location of where they are living, but any aspect that people are different from those making the judgement. People who cast stereotypes may just be uneducated about other cultures or geographic locations. It is easier, sometimes, for some to make a judgement, rather than find out what is true.
Nonetheless, people have different experiences; sometimes these various factors expose audience to misinterpretation, and some producers feel that they fail in their duty to render ideas to audience. Anyway, to me, the most important thing when people analyse a work is not just to understand the creator 's purpose, but to pull out and use personal experience to interpret and reveal our own understandings. As long as there are adequate supports, it is not wrong to manifest new ideas. Besides, for producers, some of them may think that they fail to communicate with audience, yet some of them, and I also, think that if audience gives even little thoughts about our works after they are finish, we already carry the day. All in all, to be ambiguous is somewhat tricky because it could give a work attractiveness which is very important in creating an art work.
With knowledge, there's always room for knowledge that is not wanted, meaning knowledge that there are bad people, things, etc. in life. This can cause a sense of hopelessness, because when new, horrible experiences occur in people's lives, it gives them knowledge that they don't want: the knowledge of problems and failures. People don’t want to know that they have failed, or are in a situation out of their control, so they feel like they dont have the power or means to change it. The Man know he can't change how the world they live in is, and knows that all he can do is make sure his child is safe and alive. He feels like there is no point to this life full of hunger, cold temperatures, and murder, but keeps going for The Boy.
Furthermore, the difference between sentiment and judgment is that the former can always be right because it has no reference to anything beyond itself, while the latter cannot always be right. This is so because judgments do have reference to things beyond itself but don’t always conform. With these two terms in mind, one can understand how the
Levitt says that it is difficult to correct the conventional wisdom once it is embraced by society. This is because the wisdom, more often than not, is created by experts in a field of study. The experts will draw conclusions from their observations without checking the facts. Media then goes on to spread the false conclusions, which begins to ring true and accepted by society. According to Levitt, this problem would be solved if instead believing fallacies, society focused on using logical facts.
Error can occur because the telepathic connection is weak; because the human client has emotional and/or mental blocks about the situation; because the animal is lying or choosing not to communicate fully; because the meaning of the communication does not fit easily into the backdrop of information available to the human communicator; or because the telepath simply misconstrues the meaning. Each telepathic communicator brings her own emotional and mental baggage to any session: belief systems, expectations, past experiences and emotions. Being able to drop this baggage and to be a clear channel is an important part of the process of doing the work. The best among us do this on a regular basis, but all telepaths, as all other psychics, do filter the information somewhat through their own perspectives on reality. It is part of being
I would agree with the perceptional insights when we decide to engage with people based on what we think we know about a situation. Though we base our interpretation on our own life and not looking at the situation through their life. Like you stated, we will never know what it is like to be that person. This is just like Nagel's bat analogy, we can observe and make inferences, but we will never know what it is like to be the bat. I think the materialistic observation fits in hear as well.
