Misconceptions – the viral effect of our minds

We often make judgements about people very quickly, sometimes just on the first glance in milliseconds, or the first meet, this is due to our previous encounters with people who looked or behaved the same way, or at times just because we have heard or seen something about a particular person and respond to that.

Sometimes even after staying with a person for 20 years you still have misconception that were developed long ago and you end up living with that, people don’t agree that people evolve mentally over time.

Our brain cheats us in many ways by letting our subconscious take over and making us follow it.

We need to reason, and understand each moment and each person with openness and precisely evaluating them over time , as everybody is imperfect and that’s what leads to perfection eventually.

Misconceptions should be avoided as much as possible, and one needs to be as clear in their thoughts as possible about himself, others and the world, to have a balanced mental life.
