I like watching movies, especially online. There’s plenty of movies that can keep me occupied while I’m doing other, computer related tasks.
Now, when I choose a movie to watch while doing online stuff, I have different criteria than when choosing a movie to watch in the theater.
Since movies in the theater will get my full attention, I make sure they’re pretty good before I go.
Online movies, on the other hand, just need to be entertaining enough to keep half my brain occupied while the other half is wasting time online.
(Although sometimes half a brain is all I can manage, lol)
But sometimes I mess up. Meaning I choose a movie to only half pay attention to, but end up rewinding and watching scenes over again.
These are the hidden gems that I really like. When you are expecting something to just pass the time, and you suddenly find something that’s got your full attention.
I particularly like movies that have lots of different interpretations. A sign of a well written movie, for example, is one that has several interpretations, all of which are supported by things within the movie itself.
Anytime you can get people talking about and arguing about a movie after they’ve seen it, you’ve done a good job.
Human behavior is very similar.
Meaning that we do things, and we’ve usually got several reasons for doing so. Some of them make sense, some of them don’t make sense.
You probably already know this, but one thing that we humans are really good at is self deception.
Meaning that we are often just as clueless as other people when we do crazy things. Since most of our thinking is done unconsciously, we’re can be the last people to find out.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Why did I DO (or SAY) that?!” You know what I’m talking about.
One of the secrets about human behavior, when you start to learn hypnosis, is not how to hypnotize yourself, but how to un-hypnotize yourself.
Meaning when you take away some of our pre-programmed blind spots that keep us from seeing things the way they REALLY are, it suddenly gets much easier.
Your behavior, their behavior, everything.
