a test....
    #11187411 - 10/05/09 04:34 PM (8 years, 19 days ago)

follow these steps... only read each one by itself before reading the next one.






1) picture a man.

that is the whole test. but what did the man look like? im betting he was white.

i bet even if you asked this question to black people, they would picture a white man. you ever start reading a book, and they are trying to lay out the foundation for their characters, and you slowly add and change parts of your concept of what he/she looks like?

i picked a male because the majority of us on here are male, and i figured if I asked you to picture a woman, you would picture a really smokin hot female... i know i would.

I dont konw about you, but when i say to myself, "picture a man" i imagine the same characteristics... it is someone i dont know with no defining features... pretty generic looking white guy.... but without any other information to go on... why do i picture a white guy? and why does he have real features rather than just a shadowy figure?

I pictured this, but without the smiley face.




Now his face is white, but his skin is black... hmm...


To the point of the post:  Who gives a fuck if I pictured a white person?  The society I grew up in was populated mostly by white anglo and white hispanics so of course I would picture a white person.  Well, I guess not of course since I pictured a stick person...

thats funny... you honestly picture a stick person?

I think you are missing the point. im not making a race point, or anything else, but rather a funny observation of our imaginations.

but I am willing to bet that even if you ask black people,they too will picture a white man.

Well it's an observation of your imagination, definitely!

What is funny however is that this entire thread is one big projection! :laugh:

I pictured myself coming on some girls' eye.

I wonder whose avatar gave me that idea. :strokebeard:

Yea, I did picture a stick person.  You think a black person would picture a whitey?  Maybe a black person in a white majority country, but I doubt most black people would.

I didn't see a white man, was I supposed to?

I saw a cheap suit though, and a briefcase.

My man was a shifting mosaic of different occupations - I witnessed my man change from a police man to a traffic worker to a construction worker to a plumber etc.. I didn't notice the color of the skin, I don't think my image included that detail

i thought that would give it too much substance....

from the most simple command, with the littlest information... how much detail did your imagination add with nothing else to go on?

Ha I read picture a man then immediately scrolled down and continued reading.  Really as I read threads Im barely conscious of whats going on, Im basically a zombie who scrolls through posts and grunts once in a while.  So to answer your question picturing someone never entered my mind as something to do, it might have been somewhere in the queue though.

Edit: Oh there we go it went through I guess.  Man wearing a funny hat, skin color information didnt come through though
