ScriptCoded15014275dThat's really interesting! I can relate to most thinks you mentioned about how you think, and I haven't even had the thought that others don't do the same...
@ScriptCoded It’s so strange because like all my life It NEVER occurred to me that this is not how everyone else is or a different way/ways exist.. then it’s like hmmm what way is my siblings and parents? Could this explain conflicts? Could this explain graviting to and getting along with certain people? And not others? Like holy shit so many unanswered questions! I must learn more about this!
I NEED TO BUY BOOKS ON THIS SUBJECT NOW!!! DAMNIT! Haha
Now how did I think prior to learning to speak? I hear the words and see the words and see the picture and links now but as a kid how did i do this prior to learning to read? Or learning to speak or learning to write... or fuck how did my mind work prior to seeing the things that my mind links together now to remember and see and think about things I think about.
It’s like the chicken and the egg paradox of what came first...
Something came first.. I don’t remember having a difficulty learning as a kid but the more I think about it logically my way of thinking requires certain “things” to already exist in memory as if it’s always been there.
God damnit I just need to go to sleep the more i think about it the more questions I have.. the more thoughts maybe I am fully waking up? Lol is this just a simulation? Did I just prove it? Am i self-conscious? Is this way of thinking a higher level or lower level of consciousness. Damnit mind shut off ! Lol
1001101112763275dWhat's interesting to me is that you were not aware of differing systems of mental processing. Personally, I'm very much like you when ot comes to processing information input and with the internal monologues et al. - but I've always (maybe not always, but at least as long as I can remember) been acutely aware that the way I think and process information is not the only way, and one realization makes it painfully apparent: if our mental processes were alike, interhuman communication would not be so prone to misunderstanding. It is to me obvious that people's brains work differently. Even just understanding that makes interhuman relationships so much easier, as one is not so quick to jump to assumptions anymore...
sladuled8263274d@QuanticoCEO Too self centered, maybe? Lacking empathy? Lacking having to walk a mile in other's shoes?!
Wild guesses, but I'm having a problem grasping how could you not know that others think differently.. it's not like we're computers, all wired the same way.. plus if mental processes were the same that would mean same input data would yield same output data..but it seldom does..
Anyhow, yes, some people supposedly have no internal voice, which is freaking to me..you're reading a book and?! Noone voices it out..weird af.. typing on devrant..everything quiet..blah!
Also they might have it, just not be aware of it.. or call it something different..
To me this topic is like discussing if we all see the colour red the same way o.O you, can't effing know.. same wavelength means same colour, but how it is representet in our brains?!
Another thing for you to ponder is how people dream..some have vivid dreams, representing things that happened to them that day, or dreaded meeting they have tomorrow.. but what do blind people dream?! What is happening to them at night? Especially the ones totally blind from birth? O.o
Our brains are weird..I mean at some point someones brain named all our brains brain, yet no user manual..and now we're left to figure this shit out..
jiraTicket996274dRecommend doing a communication class directed at tech people.
I spent a day with various devs from my company and a communications expert and they showed us how differently people process information.
