Connecting the Selection Attention Test and Your Reality. (2 min 31 sec)


Today we're diving into a fascinating idea that blends psychology, philosophy, and our personal experiences. We'll explore how our perceptions are shaped by our hidden biases, and how these biases affect how we see the world around us.

    1. The Selection Attention Test.

    Have you ever seen a video like this one? Were you so focused on one thing that you completely missed something else? You were asked to count a specific object but you entirely missed something unexpected happening in the background. This phenomenon called selective attention demonstrates how our brains constantly filter what we see based on what we expect to see. It's like we have a built-in search engine that prioritizes certain details while filtering out others.
    Were you purposely trying to miss something in the video? I doubt it. It's simply how our brains work to process the vast amount of information we encounter every day. However, it highlights the importance of being aware of this fact and actively trying to broaden our perspective to avoid missing out on important details.

    2. The Power of Perception.

    The power of our perceptions shapes our reality. What we experience, both positive and negative, originates from our inner thoughts and beliefs. Just like the Selection Attention Test, we filter out aspects of reality that don't align with our existing beliefs which creates a limited view of the world.

    3. What implications does this hold for you as you navigate the world?

    Be aware of your biases: We all have them, and they influence how you see things. Recognizing your biases allows you to approach situations with more open-mindedness.
    Question your assumptions: Don't take anything at face value. Ask yourself why you believe what you believe and be open to the possibility that there might be other ways of seeing things.
    Practice active observation: Pay attention to the details around you, not just what you expect to see. This helps you break free from your filters and gain a more objective understanding of the world.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
