With Thought thru New Regions 2.0

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” spoken by Atticus Finch, in To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee.

How do you “truly” climb into another’s skin and walk around?  It is a hard thing to do, well.  For that person may be a different kind of person from you, from a different time, and from a different place.

My avocation since I was a child was as a Viking bystander.  My vocation lately has been as a Viking reader of books and people.

One can try to “climb into another’s skin” through watching a movie or play, or reading a book.  This is something we can do as humans.   We can visit different lands and different tribes – the modern words for “lands” and “tribes” is countries and cultures.  We can also visit some different “ages” – through movies and living in cultures that are different than your “culture” – although there are limitations and there is a possibility to not really get the “gestalt” of that age and place.  Are you just a tourist or just an anthropologist?

Please Understand Me.  Mostly, we don’t understand “truly” – the Temperament, the Tribe, the Age that is not like us.

But we can try.

Here are some autobiographies of the various Temperaments, many from a different time and different place.  Climb into the person’s skin, and walk around in it – at least for awhile.

    We can never understand ourselves, until we examine the good and evil in our personality. “We all have problems, imperfections, neurosis, sins failures. Our imperfections are among the few things we human beings all have in common.” M Peck. Excerpt from The Cemetery Of My Mind- William Bates. Email: thecemeteryofmymind@gmail.com
