How perception affects the behaviour
Jake and Justin are two close friends. One day they got introduced to
a new woman who didn't treat them well and who seemed to be arrogant according to their own perception.
On their way Home they further reinforced the way they perceived her
by discussing the matter together. For the next few weeks they both
tried to avoid her as much they could.
Few weeks later Justin got introduced to a new woman who behaved the
same way as the old one they knew earlier but this time the woman
apologized for her behaviour at the end of the meeting and said that she
had a real bad day and that's why she couldn't smile.
Justin got encouraged by her words and asked her what does she think
of him and she replied telling him that he is a very interesting person.
At this point he came up with a new theory! What if the woman they
met earlier had a bad day as well? What if the problem was with his
perception and not with the woman!
