Perceptions and Misunderstandings

In Confrontations in life. on August 19, 2010 at 10:24 PM

Howdy WordPress! Its been so long since I actually posted something. So here I am, back to WP, to write my heart out. A sensitive topic as  is apparent from the name, it has successfully amazed me many a times. I find it spectacular as to how people and perceptions change with time, and how first impressions are just for the name sake.

Having  stayed at various places, I have seen this transition happen many a times. So many different people with different mentalities, varied cultures. We humans tend to make up an image of anyone we meet, which doesn’t last long. And most of the times, what we perceive is not what is reality.

We find someone arrogant, someone jovial and someone silent. But that may not be the case most of the times. One who is silent may be a killer. And the one who appears arrogant tends out to be very friendly.

It is these perceptions that go a step further to become misunderstandings, which primarily is because we don’t get the kind of response which we expect, thanks to our perceptions. One can’t control perceptions, but one must be aware of expectations. No expectations = no problems.

So, from now on, if i create an image of a person in my mind, then I better make a mental note that it is just temporary and may change with time. The same is suggested for the readers.

Wishing you all Happy Perceiving, minus the misunderstandings. 🙂
