mind reading

If a baby starts to cry several hours after drinking his last bottle, his mother knows precisely what he’s feeling: He’s hungry. But suppose a woman’s eyes brim with tears while she watches a DVD. Her husband sinks into the couch: What is she so upset about? She might tell him directly: “This movie is so tragic. It’s all about a doomed romance.” That may be true. But she could be thinking about how the story reminds her of her own marital troubles. Maybe she’s feeling hurt because she thinks her husband should realize what’s bothering her and acknowledge it. Or maybe she isn’t even aware that her real-world concerns are intensifying her reaction to the fictional couple.

Quickly and unknowingly, he scours his mental files—on his wife’s relationship history, on her reaction to the fight they had that morning, on the way she typically reacts to similar movies. He notes the particular quiver to her voice, observes the way she’s curled up on the couch, watches the expressions flickering across her face. He takes in information from all of these channels, filters it through his own wishes and biases… until finally it hits him: She knows about his mistress!

Every day, whether we’re pushing for a raise, wrestling with the kids over homework, or judging whether a friend really likes our latest redecorating spree, we’re reading each other’s minds. Drawing on our observations, our databank of memories, our powers of reason, and our wellsprings of emotion, we constantly make educated guesses about what another person is thinking and feeling. Throughout the most heated argument or the most lighthearted chat, we’re intently collecting clues to what’s on the other person’s mind at the moment. “It’s a perceptual ability I call mindsight,” says Daniel Siegel, UCLA psychiatrist and author of The Mindful Brain. “It allows your brain to create a map of another person’s internal state.”

Mind reading of this sort—not to be confused with the infallible superhero kind of telepathy—is a critical human skill. It’s the way we make sense of other people’s behavior and decide on our own next moves. Mind reading enables us to negotiate, compete, cooperate, and achieve emotional closeness with others. It lets us figure out when we’re being manipulated or seduced. It’s how we know when someone finds our jokes hilarious or is humoring us out of politeness. Mind-reading ability is perhaps the most urgent element of social intelligence.

Do it poorly and the consequences are serious: It can lead to conflict born of misunderstanding. It can make us feel lonely within a relationship. It can even incite violence: Abusive husbands typically—and inaccurately—attribute critical thoughts to their wives; that’s why they lash out. Difficulty divining others’ thoughts and feelings—”mindblindness”— characterizes autism and is what makes the condition so socially debilitating.

Decades of research on mind reading (or, as psychologists call it, empathic accuracy) now reveal how it works, who’s especially good at it, and how we can improve our ability to divine others’ thoughts—even when our conversation partners may not know their own minds. The thoughts and feelings of others, including those closest to us, are far from transparent; that makes mind reading the only way to know someone beyond the mere surface. It’s the only way to achieve true intimacy. And the only way to love someone for who he or she really is.

Take for example this picture of mind reading.

Ryan Agoncillo and the Dose Participantes

Ryan Agoncillo and the Dose Participantes

Daring dozen

By Bayani San Diego Jr.
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 23:47:00 11/09/2008

MANILA, Philippines – On the set of “Pinoy Fear Factor” (PFF) in Argentina, host Ryan Agoncillo recalled that the show’s 12 contestants would often get startled whenever they heard his voice.

“They got shell-shocked,” related Agoncillo. “When we wrapped taping, I treated them to a night out. I didn’t want them to have bad memories of our stay in Buenos Aires.”

Actually, Agoncillo pointed out that it took a lot to daunt the 12 “participantes,” as the contestants are called.

According to Lauren Dyogi, ABS-CBN Business Unit Head: Of the original 12, only one backed out, a single mom. “We initially had six boys and six girls. But since one female contestant quit, we ended up with five girls and seven boys.”

The female participantes, especially the celebrities, put up a good fight, said Dyogi.

TV host Phoemela Baranda insisted that she joined PFF precisely because “she didn’t want to be boxed as a celebrity,” as all glamour and glitz.

Like Phoemela, the other participantes wanted to prove something to themselves, their families and the public.

Actress LJ Moreno noted that the show serves as “affirmation that I’m not the same girl I used to be.”

Case in point: LJ’s bio states that, during her time away from show biz, she studied early childhood education and is now a preschool teacher.

Aspiring chef Jose Sarasola asserted that he doesn’t want to be perceived as another spoiled kid from the suburbs. “I have a lot to offer.”

Jose, however, was the first to get hit by intrigues. Even before the show’s Nov. 10 launch, his purported nude photos were posted online. Dyogi nipped the controversy in the bud: “I checked and it’s not him in the pictures.”

Bikini Summit winner Gail Nicolas admitted: “I want to overcome my fears.” Chief among her phobias are being suspended in heights and confined in dark places.

Former cager Ram Sagad claimed that he joined the show “to venture out of my comfort zone … It’s my first time to be separated from my family.”

Dyogi explained that the Kapamilya network “Filipinized” the Endemol franchise. As such, most of the participantes are a tad forthcoming about their sob stories.

Struggling businessman Manuel Chua Jr. singled out his 4-year-old daughter as his main reason for joining PFF and “failure” as his greatest fear.

Stand-up comic and Glutathione sales agent Janna Dominguez said that the P2-million cash prize would help her dad retire from his job as construction worker in Japan.

RJ Calipus, a stevedore from Tondo, recounted that “life has been tough for my wife and two daughters. It hurts me every time I see them sick or hungry.”

Ledge dancer Savanah Lamsen admitted that PFF is her entry point to show biz. She believes that fame “would help give back to my family the comfortable life we once had.”

Dyogi described them as

the daring and determined dozen.

Balikbayan Marion Angelo de la Cruz survived teen rebellion and racism in Austria. Veterinarian Elmer Felix flunked the board exams twice before passing on his third try.

Model Jommy Teotico almost died after being beaten up by the family of a married woman she ended up in bed with.

Joking or not, Jommy, however, gave the most honest reason for joining PFF: “To meet the female participantes.”

 Love is…
Eternity condensed.
Passion expanding at the speed of light.
Commitment with the certainty of Solomon.
Understanding with the patience of Joab.

Love is…
The pain of a thousand daggers.
Fear of the unknown.
The uncertainty of quantum.
The apprehension of the first day of school.

Love is…
Pure joy.
