  • Past experiences influence our thinking, which shape our future view.
  • “We see the world as we are, not as it is” Anais Nin.
  • We may also ignore the faults of people we like, and notice the faults more of people from groups we unconsciously don’t like.
  • When people are more tired, and under time pressure, the more vulnerable they are.
