    A little vid that is worth a look.
    Not funny, not religious.
    YouTube

    What do you think?
    Are you guilty?

    Not funny? Isn't it the greatest fun to find oneself to be quite sure and then wrong?

    I was quite sure I was posting this in "Spirituality"
    Not sure it's that funny finding out I'm wrong! :'(

    I liked it. It made me smile.

    I think we all 'judge' people in certain ways and it's not just about how they look. Judge is too harsh a word to describe what's going on in my head though when I'm feeling uncertain about who is close by. Anyone here whose ever tried internet dating will know exactly what I'm on about.......

    "It started with a pic" 🙂

    I'm not convinced that any of the people in the clip looked "strange" enough - or WERE "strange" enough - for the experiment to work so well. What is the 'punchline', for example, in realizing you were talking to a dwarf? So, the guy imagined her to be average height. But... she wasn't. Er... so?

    I thought they just chose people who had experienced feeling negatively judged about how they looked? Then put them in a situation where they had to judge how they imagined others looked after holding their hands and hearing their voice.

    Nope, after a second look I don't think they were doing that. I need to watch the video a few more times.

    It's certainly serves up a thought provoking moment.
