Projections

Projections

How could such a person will perceive the world? Naturally he will be out to see what's in his head. It will look at the person and to see a certain image, consisting of ideas, personal experience, looking to his beliefs. An interesting point. The idea that the perception of the outside world is defined by the inner world is very well shown in one of the main ways of psychological protection – Projections. The basic principle of projection – we can see, we pay attention and endow the world around the properties we have in ourselves, but for some reason, are denied us.

Why are some negative qualities of people we do not hurt (well, he miser, and figs with him), while others lead to madness (I hate when the blunt). As far as I can see from the experience of counseling, those things that customers blame someone else, usually found in them, and quite explicitly, but they are not noticed. There is a very great exercise – Mirrors. Write down the names on a piece of 4-fictional characters (from movies, books), or people that you really do not like. Under each of them write down the qualities that you seem to be particularly unpleasant. Turn the page. Now write 4 characters, for which you would like to be, who you respect and feel a high standard. Under each write down the positive qualities of each. The meaning of exercise – those qualities that you feel disgusting at others, you have here and now in some form, but you do not agree and, therefore, can not see.
