Whether we know it or not, were all street-corner psychics. Without the ability to divine others thoughts or feelings, we couldn’t handle the simplest social situations, or achieve true intimacy with others. Drawing on our observations, our databank of memories, our powers of reason, and our wellsprings of emotion, we constantly make educated guesses about what another person is thinking and feeling. Throughout the most heated argument or the most lighthearted chat, we're intently collecting clues to what's on the other person's mind at the moment.
Mind reading enables us to negotiate, compete, cooperate, and achieve clones to others. As we watched the video in class about mind reading, it is apparent that the mind is an astronomical and interesting human part. I took a lot of interest in the video since I am interested in the mind. I guess that is why I am a Psychology major (haha). The brain is much more plastic and more influenced by experience than we used to think. The brain is highly structured, but it is also extremely flexible. It’s not a blank slate, but it isn’t written in stone either.
It is very interesting to know, that sometime in the near future we may be able to actually read minds. With all the advancing technology that is being introduced each and every day, the human mind may become the first step in this amazing phenomenon. Click on the title of this blog and it will send you to a cool mind reading video that I found. Have an open mind while watching. Sit back and ENJOY!!!!
