One interesting aspect of psychology is how to test things.
Let’s say you’re a marketer.
And you want to set up a study.
The study will measure the best combination of cheese and snack crackers.
So the participants come in and try all the combinations.
Three flavors of crackers and three flavors of cheese.
And then you have them fill out a questionnaire.
This tends to produce less than objective data.
Because they KNOW they are being studied.
So they give answers they think you WANT to hear.
So to truly test your product, you need to set up a kind of secret test.
Like when they test medicine, it’s double blind.
So the doctor doesn’t know the real medicine from the placebo.
And the patients don’t know the real medicine from the placebo.
Ideally, you watch what people do, not what they say.
Like in the snack study, for example, you tell people a different reason from the real test.
Like have them watch a bunch of short videos, and then fill out a short questionnaire.
And while they are filling out the questionnaire, they have eat snacks in the back of the room.
And then just WATCH the different kinds of crackers and cheese the eat.
When they don’t know they are being watched.
This is why trying to figure somebody out by the words is very hard.
Especially if you don’t know the person.
They’ll tend to tell you what they think you want to hear.
This is why truly getting to know somebody takes time.
To experience how they behave in various situations.
This is why, traditionally, most folks take at least a year of serious dating before they decide to get married.
It takes that long to really know somebody.
And even then it’s just a guess.
It’s very easy, even from a subconscious standpoint, to pretend to be somebody you’re not.
Even how you behave.
There is, of course, a much easier way.
A much more efficient way.
To truly understand people much more quickly.
By first understanding the common inner nature we all share.
And starting from there, it’s just a matter of getting a bit of definition.
Which you can also do pretty easily.
Which makes it possible to get to know somebody within an hour or so more than they even know themselves.
