The Way We Connect
Do we think we know more about people's personality and feelings than we really do - and how does that impact our interactions with them?
Show Notes

Do we truly see people for who they are, or do our preconceived ideas mean we only see them through a filter? Do we assume we know what our loved ones are thinking and end up feeling upset or hurt because we didn't challenge that assumption? Are the negative qualities that upset us so much in others actually parts of ourselves that we try to deny? Join us and our friend John as he explores how projection may have played a part in his divorce, and how self awareness is helping him to communicate openly and honestly in his new relationship. We look at how stereotypes and discrimination can be the result of projection, how we feel when people view us through their preconceived notions, and how we can reduce the amount we project.
