Human psychology is so very curious.
On Facebook, there’s a game circulating which asks people to list some unknown facts about themselves. Immediately, I was struck by the different types of answers and that, some “private” people, just didn’t want to play.
As a person who shares her ideas and opinions (more often than many would care to hear), I find “private” people curious from the “get go”. This is not a judgement, at all. I just wonder what they are feeling and thinking? Since they aren’t inclined to share…I may never know.
That said, the answers, from those who wanted to play, fell into several categories.
1. Things that have happened to them.
2. Their personal tastes and preferences.
3. Accomplishments and choices they’ve made.
THIS is absolutely interesting to me.
While some, chose to reach into their childhood for tidbits, others stayed in a “real time” frame of reference… this also, was interesting.
I’m not a psychologist and we cannot be sure that “how?” people answered isn’t influenced by their own environment in that moment BUT it must, on some level, say a lot about their self-image.
Now, don’t expect me to draw conclusions. This blog post is just about pointing out something that I found curious and wanted to share ‘cuz sharing is what I do! LOL 😉
