The Psychology of the Other..

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

The Psychology of the Other..

Content to follow soon..
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

I am going to take this as the content of your thesis.
The psychology of the other is content to follow soon. Who a person is (or really is) is on its way but never here already. There's a kind of promise in the eyes, posture, tone of voice, about what is coming. This is a person's psychology. A person as a kind of 'saying what they will do and be for you'. But it is always on its way, not here now.

A test, perhaps?

To see what the other can do to populate this thread with content, for you to then attribute to yourself as inspiring. Generously, perhaps there is intentional adoption of marketing techniques of suspense at work here, or laziness and procrastination? What does this say about me as the other to you, or vice versa? A list of cognitive biases could have easily started this thread and simultaneously explained the responses we've seen so far, including my own.

I like KT's comment - very Heraclitan, like stepping into the same river of identity twice.
A comment on man's "becoming" over his "being".
Identity as subject to the "problem of induction"...

It takes any psychology of "the other" within the psychology of its opposite: "the self", negating or at least challenging the premise of a thread that hasn't yet even started.

No ulterior intent.. I was on my way out, and so the OP was postponed until my return.

I don't sell ideas Sil, I manage the process of them becoming a reality, but I have contributed to the odd concept here and there.. when needed, to give a campaign more.. direction.

Good posts all round. =D>

No need for an OP now, though.. :confusion-questionmarks:

I'm part-French Prom.. thanks. :eusa-snooty:

When I go visit the place, and tell them that I'm part they, I instantly and forever become a friend and confidante unto their cussings of their dislike of Brits, and free wine or shots and food, for me. :)

And here is the tremendous pull of the power of identity politics, that the current administration is playing on it's citizens.
Fortunate the few , who can go through it unscathed.
To claim naivete, in times of woe, is a form of expressing neutrality.
Neutrality is at dead center at these times, it's cold to either survive or die trying.

god gives power to will to survive to those, who believe in that power, to internalize the extemporised and reversely.

....is very often not really their psychology but that of our own.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant

And yet it always is to some extent. At first it appears as if their and our psychology may be exclusive, but then there is always some effect of one to the other, however slight.

It makes one wonder which is more determinative, the unnoticed and denied, or the consciously accepted.

In the latter, it usually turns on social , filial , and group shared values, easily becoming rote and automatic.

Absolutely.. and as we mature, we become adept and capable of knowing the psychology of the other.

..but I think the Other has to be open enough, to enough of an extent that allows for the process to occur, to let the Other in and be privy to their They. :)
