WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE LEGOS?
When I talk about perception here, I mean how different people process input. I never understood how differently human brains process the same information until I met my husband. He's an born designer who relates to the world visually. He processes the details, shapes, proportion, color in everything he sees. Bad lighting in a restaurant effects the taste of his food. An ugly space can make him physically uncomfortable. He can draw a complex building in detail that he hasn't seen in ten years. Me? I only relate to his perception of the world intellectually--most of the subtle discordance I don't get at all.
In contrast, I don't have any remarkable talents or genius. Sure, I'm good with numbers and my writing doesn't suck. I pick up software easily and have good organization skills that allow me to function in a day job that I've had for almost 20 years. I point these talents out to myself periodically because I don't have a genius like my husband. And being average and competent is just fine.
And yes, my husband saw the obvious answers to the picture above easily. Funny thing is, I did, too, at least for most--the others I didn't know when I saw the answers. Hint--think cartoons. The answers are here. So how did you do? Did you see the characters right away? Did it take a while? Were you totally baffled? How do you relate to the world--visually, through touch, through sound, through smell?
