Whilst in the city yesterday, lots of eureka moments and ideas and thoughts came into my head…
One of the things that came to my brain, almost straight away, was the fact that almost every single person was content in their own little bubble. No one ever really cares about what others do, unless something unexpected or interesting happens. For example, people come out of their “bubbles” when a street performer is doing their stuff. They are seeking attention (and money) and so, without realising it, people generally do give them the attention (and money) that they seek.
Yesterday, I tried my best to not be in a bubble of my own. Instead, I tried to concentrate on others, and give them the attention that they are not seeking. They don’t realise that they are getting my attention, and so just carry on in their little bubbles, whilst I am making myself amused by this whole theory.
From this “experiment” you can also determine the personality and background of a person. A rough, scrappy looking man gives the impression that he doesn’t care about himself or his surroundings. And an older woman, wearing leather gloves, all dressed up and fancy, gives the impression of her being from a posh background, and takes extra care towards her lasting impression.
However, we must look closer into this theory. Why would that man be “scrappy” looking? Maybe this man generally does care about his look. Maybe he had been unexpectedly called to somewhere as an emergency or something like that. Naturally, he wouldn’t take the time to look good, he would want to get there as soon as possible. Or maybe he is just a generally scruffy man, and doesn’t give a Scooby about what impression he makes. And maybe, just maybe, that woman might only be dressed as fancy because of an important event. Maybe she usually doesn’t give a care in the world as to what she looks like, and maybe she’s just like the scruffy man!
So it is really interesting to do these experiments when you’re out and about, and the best thing is, is that no one knows you’re doing it, because they are in their own bubble of content!
