Are you more likely to see the world in terms of black and white, or are more situations and issues likely to be shades of gray?
There is not a lot of grey in my universe
I see the world so black and white that most people would assume I was an idiot if that's all they knew about me.
Really? That surprises me quite a bit.
Greys always seem to me like insufficient resolution. People who accept them seem like they are okay not having all the details, rather use a good enough approximation. Pragmatism anywhere but social relationships bothers me. ...even then... ;-)
I see why you might think that. In my case, I feel like I consider all sides of the argument, maybe too much. Which is why most of my world is very gray :)
Not only do I consider both sides of arguments, I distill them and add to them until they actually make sense. Then they are black and white. For example, I really struggled with metacognition and cognition. I listened, thought about it, and made
it make sense. Now I understand it in a very black and white way. I can quickly and easily see lapses in processes or thinking and describe them with ease.
Uh, TMS? You win. Using words that even I have to look up = instant win. I'm gonna go change my vote.
OK, kidding on that last part :)
Most situations are gray areas for me. I like to believe I always have more than two options.
I see more in absolutes than not.
It depends on the issue. Most things are shades of grey while certain things to me are b/w. Either way I try to see it through others eyes. Never know when the next learning experience will pop up!
Fiscally - black and white
Social issues- variables.
I would say I'm similar, EB. More absolute when it comes to fiscal or economic issues.
I remembered that our stats match is pretty high. We do think alike :-)
I didn't realize our agreement % was that high! The highest I've ever had was RebelFury76 at 68+%. Didn't expect that either. Hopefully Tony will get back to me on my agreement % matches though! I am curious!
B&W is for the young, naïve, or willfully ignorant.
Most things are varying leeks of grey
The older you get, the more grey you see. (In more ways than one!)
When you're young it certainly feels black and white.
I've heard exactly the opposite. But I can attest that I was much more absolute when I was younger, and now see many sides to many issues.
Hm, one of those is the absorption of all colors and the other is reflection of all colors. Why is everything in between grey? I think I'd like to see the world in the rest of the colors.
Ha! Scrazzle, you know what I meant, hopefully. But I think you have a point. My use of the term was just a figure of speech.
I think I see too much as grey.
Me too, I'm in the middle and really objective. So times it can come across as being cold but I blame it on being the middle child lol.
I think gray should be my favorite color sometimes. You're in good company, Susan and Dawl!
Lmaoo being the middle child
If the world was black and white that'd be a bit boring, no?
The same goes for grey
Mary, what do you mean?
I think all grey would be a bit boring. No contrast.
Ah - yes. Scrazzle already called me on that one :) The full spectrum is much more preferable.
From the viewpoint of one who loves fabric, it's interesting to me that gray pairs so well with about every color, while black or white can overpower or wash out some colors. Gray is very popular among quilters in the "modern" genre of quilts.
I wear a LOT of gray, ironically :)
Yeah, I think my art teacher may have been a bit too forceful when he pounded "IT NEEDS MORE CONTRAST!" into my head.
Study Tax Law of any kind and you will see how gray the world is.
No thank you. (Insert snoozing emoji)
I will also decile to study tax law. But the world is awfully gray for me, nonetheless.
Screw you, autocorrect.
Gray for this kid.
Or grey, if I'm in England.
Yep. This kid too. Rarely can I find an issue where there isn't significant gray.
Only sith see the world in terms of absolutes. (And no one calls yoda on his hypocrisy). Join the dark side we have cookies.
What kind of cookies? ;)
Darkside chocolate chip or sith peanut butter
Hmmm. Sith is not my favorite flavor, but I do like peanut butter!
