is going to be another one of my random social issues kind of post - I hope you
actually like it, because this one was so eye-opening for me.
I imagined myself being in the same situation,
it was a
little overwhelming and uncomfortable, to be honest - which can be good
sometimes, it makes things more real.
this video because my Organisational Behaviour Business course played it to us
in a lecture, to show us how we have selective perception -
organise, interpret and pay attention to certain things that we see around us,
on the basis of our interests, background, experience and attitudes.
don't have much to say about the video; just that you guys should at least

think it could be interesting, it's only about 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

of what reality is (homeless strangers), not reality itself (ourloved
this video isn't so much about people not recognising their loved ones
disguised as homeless people on the street - I know it's not normal for people
to really be making lots of eye contact with homeless people or expecting
to see their loved ones on the street...but that's exactly it.
homeless person we are to encounter in our lives, they are someone's wife,
husband, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin.
should think about how we would want other people to treat our loved ones if
they were to unfortunately be in similar situations.
the video is about human value and humanity as a whole.
video just frames the "social experiment" in a certain way that it
gives us a different perspective.
love to hear your thoughts on it!
for me, the participant's reactions hit me hard.
