I’ m cold, disagreeable and an introvert. My name is round but no one perceives me as anything else, even first impressions. I know too many outliers to take this seriously.
So horoscopes got too boring and we’ve moved on?!
Everybody’s a synesthete.
Was just about to say something very similar to this ^^^ @teodoroberto
Defintely have the feeling that the more we learn about consciousness - the more it’s going to appear that senses are just somewhat locally well defined tendrils reaching out into the world from a unifying associative blob.
So, “woody” versus “tinny”?
Dammit - I came here to say that.
So did I.
If my name sounds odd, is that my mistake?
Next up: what the bumps on your head tell us about your future!
Yeah, it’s a silly exercise, but it might have some value in understanding how people respond to us during first impressions. People’s brains are weird, and associations like “spiky” and “round” are interesting to examine, even if they don’t actually relate to real personality traits. Who we are is so complex. Who people think we are is another shade to that puzzle.
So that’s why they call it that.
My first name begins with an m and ends in a k. Do people therefore perceive me as wishy-washy?
Just this, but for names.
Far from it, they just think you’re a little confused about human culture, and have an alien sense of humor.
While I believe this is bogus, there are studies showing how the first letter of your last name can impact your life - mostly because throughout school and other group activities, most organizations list groups alphabetically - meaning those with last names that start with A-E are frequently given more opportunities because they appear higher on those lists.
I think my name sound smooth… not round, no spikes.
I was wondering how the Matt’s of the world get on. (note I am not a Matt, but I know one)
People tend to walk all over them.
