The Egocentric Perspective

Sometimes you have to understand that people are not capable of seeing things from a different perspective. No matter how much they feel they are viewing things in an objective manner, their thoughts, opinions, and emotions still generate from a self centered point of view. It is not to say that they are selfish people nor or they inconsiderate of others, but it is just the way their brains perceive the world around them. It is the only way for them to make sense of things at times and for the most part, it is a way to protect their pride or emotions. Whether it’s someone at work, a significant other, friend, or a family memeber we all no someone who portrays this characteristic. The best way to deal with these type of individuals is to reframe from any argumentative conversations, as that will only fuel the persons’ ego and belief that they are right. Instead just simply display positive body language to reassure the person that you are being an active listener. And most importantly don’t take what they say to heart or try to analyze everything. Also, your intuition allows you to detect when something is not right so use that as your guidance to help you through the situation.
