I don't think that you can truly understand another person's perspective because you've spent your entire life living your own. Every small experience that someone has can shape who they are and manipulate their brain and feelings, so if you have not had an identical life you will be missing key aspects to their perspective.
I agree with this, a lot of what you go through does shape your experience in this life.
I strongly agree with this, every moment we experience is different and hard to compare to that of someone else.
Yes, I agree that you never truly have the key aspects, all you can have is sympathy or empathy.
Past experiences definitely shape how we see the world.
I believe you can try. It may not be entirely possible to see the world from another person’s perspective entirely, though if you allow yourself you expand your mindset, you can attempt to see outside of your perceptive field and understand the lifestyle of those around you.
I agree that you can attempt to view other perspectives of those around you.
I agree that you should try to understand others around you.
I do agree with that even though it's not possible to see others perspective doesn't mean you shouldn't try to do so.
Yes, I agree! And I said something similar
I don’t think I could ever understand the world from another person’s perspective. This is because I can try and understand but I have never lived exactly like that person. I have never gone through what they have, but I can try to understand and learn from their perspective.
yessirrrrr, well said
I agree with you on the way you may not be able to but can still try to understand them.
I agree because you may not have had the same experiences that makes them think a certain way.
I agree, we can always try, but we can never truly understand.
I agree with you
I agree it is hard to connect if you hadn't gone through the same things as everyone else.
I do not think someone could ever see the world as another perspective. I believe you could show empathy as if you were but still never truly understand.
I agree that we can show empathy
I agree, but I also think they may just be sympathetic, and not care as much.
I also don't think you could truly understand but you can try
the rest of it before I uploaded on accident: Each person has their own daily life with many experiences so it would be hard to capture those views each time.
I do not think you can truly understand someone else's perspective. This is because an event can and will affect people differently. Something that is just another Monday, could end up being incredible traumatic for some else and even though they could try and explain it to the other they won't completely know the effect it had on that person with them not having the same experiences that the other has.
I agree with your comment!
I like how you admire that we all see things differently.
No, I think that we can go through similar experiances but I don't think that we can ever truly understand someone else's world. I don't think that I would ever be able to comprehend everything from one of my friends world. Because I don't live his world, I live my own, with my own experiances.
I feel that same way
I don't think we ever could truly see it from another's perspective. We each have our own experiences, and are almost always hiding things from each other. We each have our own lives, feelings, and all that, so no, we can never truly understand another's perspective.
I agree that we all have our own experiances
Yes I agree
I don't think you can. Although you can be open minded to other people's perspectives I don't think you can 100% terminate your own opinions. Also people function and interpret things so differently I think it is impossible to predict and assum how somone else is comprehending something.
I agree - that is a very intelligently written opinion.
I also believe you can't truly understand someone elses perspective
Yes I agree, we can try to take i the perspective as much as possible, but we will always have some lingering opinions of our own.
I totally agree, although you can be open minded, you can never fully know what other people are experiencing.
It is very hard to try to connect and listen to someone if you aren't open minded.
Yes, I agree gurl! I hadn't thought about our own opinions when trying to answer this
I don't think you can. Because I feel you can try to see it from another person's perspective but you won't see the perspective of someone else as they see it. I also feel you will always have your own perspective in the way of seeing someone else's perspective.
I personally don't think I would be able to comprehend everything the same. I feel like we could be able to experience the same things but not be able to look at what we did the same way as if we were in our own body. Even though change is good in ways I don't feel that i'd be able to go through life in someone else's perspective.
I feel the same as if I could never fully see their perspective.
I agree humans comprehend and digest things so differently we couldn't understand completely
I don't think you can truly see from someone else's perspective, because the experiences you can only relate back to your own.
You may share lots of experiences, but every version is different and although you may agree or relate, you will never truly experience what they did.
Yes, I agree. I think that the way we react to a certain things that happened, makes it hard for us as humans to understand 100% others perspective
No, I don't think you can truly understand the world from someone else's perspective unless you experience it personally. It is good to try and expand your living experience so you can understand other people's perspectives better and sympathize with them. Even then, everyone is their own person and we all think and react to things differently.
I agree the human species is so complicated that you can never truly understand
I like the analogy that you can sympathize, but not understand, coolio.
I think that you are correct in saying that it is important to have new experiences to expand your understanding and mindset, to make other more relatable to yourself and vise versa. I also think that shared experience is also important, and can help bolster that understanding of another person's feelings.
That is a good point, I agree!
I honestly don't think one could look at the world from another's perspective completely. We all live different lives and have had different experiences that have made us into what we are today so no two people can see things the exact way. I do think that one could try to use another past as a way to see their point of view but I still don't think you could see their point of view perfectly.
I agree with you. Although, I do believe sometimes people who are especially sympathetic and meek can come pretty close to a thorough comprehension of the other's mindset and emotional, spiritual, ect... position.
I think you can see the world through a different lens. I also think though that it takes more than just one thing to change your whole perspective. Through your own trials though you can agree and help someone if you had experienced the same things.
I agree that if you are open-minded you may find experiences that can help you understand someone else's.
No. You can get really close with shared experience, but it is impossible to actually share the exact same perspective. We have all lived wildly different lives, and just have different brains in general. Just because you can't truly understand doesn't mean try, empathy is cool!
No, absolutely not. Though you can and should try to understand other's and how they view the world you never truly can. You will never fully understand someone else's expiriences, traumas, biases, preferences, and so many more deciding factors that shift their beliefs and perspectives.
Although you should definitely try and sympathize and understand, I agree that you can never fully know what people are experiences and going through.
you are very correct, traumas, biases, preferences, and other factors are very important in how people see the world, and no one shares those things to an exact point.
No, you probably couldn't COMPLETELY understand life from another perspective but I do think you kind of can. Like when you have an experience that someone else has also had brings you closer to understanding their perspective. But, the way we react to whatever happened sets us apart and makes it harder to understand other people
It was very smart to say that how we react to certain situations may set us apart.
Yeah, I can understand that and how it could be different.
No I dont believe that you can ever fully understand someone and there point of view. You will never know all of what another person has gon through. The differences is exeperiences, culture, morals, where or how you were raised, differ people and make it so they have a very unique and incomprehendable for other who aren't you.
Yeah I agree with your point!
I do not think that, on one's own, in this life, any such perfect understanding is possible. There are relationships and situations that might come close. For example, a long-time married couple may be able to, with near perfect, accuracy gauge or guess the other's feelings, reaction, or actions. This is just, however, because they are very accustomed to the way the other acts and thinks, and because they have shared many experiences together. Even though they are able to predict the other's actions, it does not mean that they know all of the contributing reasons behind those actions.
I do not think anyone even knows why they themselves do all that they do. God alone can see all the innermost workings of the heart and mind. Sometimes, perhaps He may grant insights to one, to help them benefit another. But, excepting His will, I do not think mankind on their own can have the self-separation and understanding necessary to see the world perfectly from the viewpoint of another individual.
I agree that we ourselves may not understand everything that we do and why, and only God knows the innermost workings of our mind and heart.
I wouldn't say that I could understand someone else's life and their views just because I haven't been in their shoes and haven't been through what they been through but I would always try to understand and imagine what they are coming from.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
