Seeing the world differently

This interesting article describes how artists and non-artists look differently at the same picture (the artists scan the entire picture, while the non-artists focus on just the key objects). I suppose that shouldn't necessarily surprise us, but nonetheless, it's a reminder that everyone sees the world differently.

We each have our own lens that's been shaped over time by our experiences. It helps to keep this in mind when dealing with other people. You'll be more understanding, compassionate, and respectful.

Just as your lens has subtly changed shape over the years, you can change it back. It just can't happen overnight.
