Making sense of the world

​We make sense of the world using learnt behaviour

Filling in the gaps with the familiar when in uncharted territory

This can skew our understanding, make us misread situations, or sometimes be our saviour

Perceptions based on experience

Help form our resiliance 

We make sense of the world using learnt beliefs

Adding a layer of our emotions, that affect what we see

Our unconsious awareness adding pleasure or grief

Two people seeing the same event will have a different perspective

In relationships we need to be bias detectives
