What if YOUR perception of the world was just a big fat lie?

I want to tell you about a very revealing experiment, one that I've gone through. But it is something that is going to actually blow your mind when you go through that experience and it makes you realize a few things.

So the first thing and the most important thing is that everybody thinks that they're at the centre of the universe. So please, before you say, no, I'm not selfish, I'm not self-centred and stuff. That's not what I mean. What I mean is your perception and how you see the world.

As far as you know, this is how people see it. So you look up, you see the sky is blue. So sometimes I ask myself, does everybody see the same thing? You know, it's a very interesting question. And I actually got the answer to that question at an interview.

So there was an experiment that I was part of. I was in a group interview. I was going to work on a sales call platform. You have a bunch of people calling people trying to sell them stuff, you know, and so they don't have time to go and interview everybody. And plus, the level of responsibility of this job doesn't necessarily require a lengthy interview process.

So they will actually do group interviews. And at this group interview they had this experiment which was so revealing it was crazy.

What if YOUR perception of the world was just a big fat lie?

So basically we were shown a drawing and asked so what do you see in this picture?

OK, so, half of the room was seeing an old lady on the picture and half of the room was seeing a young lady on the picture. And if you were seeing the old lady, it was impossible for you to see the young lady and vice versa. OK, but it was the same picture. It was just one picture and there were actually two drawings in there.

But depending on who you are, you will see one or the other. That was so revealing for me. I was like, do you know this question of does anybody does everybody see the world as I see it? I started questioning it.

OK, so there are people who have repeated this this experiment, and they've taking it a little further. The guys who were conducting the experiment wanted to see if you could be swayed to one way or another towards the old lady or the young lady somehow.

OK, so after that, what they decided to do was to take the experiment a little bit further. So in one case, they did the exact same thing. So they showed the picture of the old lady to half the room and the picture of the young lady to the other half. And then afterwards they asked people, OK, so what did you what did you see in there?

OK, so obviously results were the same, like ninety five point ninety nine percent of people were seeing what they had been shown right before.

The aim of the experiment was to see how your perception will actually influence the way you communicate. OK, so both parties knew that the other ones were able to see something else. And they were much more open to discussion with the other group to figure out, OK, so where the hell is the old lady?

Now since people knew that there was another option, they were very cooperative and basically saying, OK, can you show me where it is?  And in the conversation there was actually a lot of exchanging information.

This basically tells you, since you knew that there was another way of seeing things right, you are more open to discussion to understand where people were coming from. And maybe you could actually see it this way and be like, oh, it makes sense.

And what's fascinating is the more you are stuck in your ways and stuff and the bigger the aha moment is like, oh wow. Yeah, yeah. I can see it now. And you hear people like oh man what.

All this is just to say that as I was saying in the beginning, we just assume that we are the centre of the universe and not in a selfish way just because of our senses. Right. You only see what you see. You cannot be in someone else's head and see what they see and perceive stuff. Right.

So up until today, you might have imagined that the way you perceive the world is how everybody perceives it, but it's not the case when people see very, very different things.

OK, so the point is how you see the world is not actually the world as it is. What you're seeing is who you are, OK, in the sense that it was everything you see is based on your past, your experiences, your fears, your desires, your interpretations and stuff, you know?

That perception of who you are is going in addition to influence how you perceive the world and is also going to influence how you communicate with other people.

OK, so the lesson here is basically to free us to accept the fact that other people will see things differently, OK, and they're probably right in their own mind because in their own world, because of who they are, this is what's happening.
And very often you're both right.
