Life Was Like A Box of Chocolate.

Posted on Updated on

Digging deeper into social phenomenons, I found that we often remember things differently than they are. Take Forrest Gump for example. We all know that he said “Life is like a box of chocolate.” However, that is not what he said. He clearly says “was like…”. You can click here to see what you think. It intrigues me to think that everyone can be wrong. The Venn Diagram effect appears to a real phenomenon. I covered this in a previous blog.

We all carry a different perspective of this world. My reality may differ from yours. There is nothing wrong with that as long as we don’t confront each other with our differences. Our differences bring flavor to life. Another movie that I find often miss quoted is Field of Dreams. “If you build it they will come.” I’m not sure where this started. I hear “If you build it he will come.” I could be wrong. 🙂 Click here to see what you hear.

Thanks for taking time out if your day to read this. And as always, thanks for sharing and following.

    Isn’t this like, for example, people believing bulls to get angered by seeing red, while in fact they are colour blind? Like a wrong assumption everyone believes is true.

    There’s a psychological term for it, but I can’t come up with it now.

    Although, in this case, it’s probably just society picking something up, changing it a bit and then it starts to lead its own life.

      If you are referring to the Mandela effect then you would be correct. However, this refers to remembering the past differently than history has recorded it.

        I meant something else, it’s a term for a common assumption that’s wrong from the start. Like everyone assumes mosquitoes attack people with “sweeter blood” more often, while in fact there are just people who are more resistant to their bites. Oh well, maybe I’ll think of the correct term, but even then it’s not exactly what you meant in your post.
