Learning Journal - Hindsight Blinds

Hindsight blinds because the path of what happened in the past is so brightly lit. That trail is so clear to you that everything else that could have happened is cast even more deeply into shadow. If you then want to reconstruct what could have happened and understand the choices made that produced that pathway versus another, you actually have to work hard to avoid the dangers of hindsight to then re-imagine the world before problems had been solved. — Philip Zelikow

Learning Journal - Personal Fable

This is my new experiment. I'm taking short note on things I've learned. The first entry is personal fable.

Personal fable - a term coined by David Elkind (1967) that is used in psychology to describe a form of egocentrism normally exhibited during early adolescence, and it is characterized by an over-differentiating of one's experiences and feelings from others to the point of assuming those experiences are unique from those of others. A person might believe that they are the only one who can experience whatever feelings of joy, horror, misery, or confusion they might encounter.
