Have you ever stopped to think, why did that person cut me off in traffic or why did my boss shoot down my idea, or better yet, why did that person say such a hurtful thing? What really is going on in people’s heads when they do the things they do or say the things they say?
I find myself often times wondering these things, and I sometimes come up with answers, other times, I just scratch my head in amazement. I know we have all been victim to this, and most likely, we have all been the subject of someone’s questioning. What is it in our brains that cause some decisions to be completely irrational and almost unconscious, where other decisions make complete sense (at least to you or the person wondering about your decision) and seem completely rational.
Why does it seem like sometimes the answer to these questions is that the person did what they did because it was of benefit to them and they were not concerned with the fallout of that decision, like who did this negatively affect and why?
Who has these answers – you, me????
I leave you with this, which one would you take and why?
