I’m hoping that this won’t have to be moved to IMHO, but if that’s the fate it must suffer in the absence of any factually based info on how the brain processes information, well, such is life.
I see it on a daily basis, from people who can’t seem to enter the correct auditorium at a three-screen theater despite being told what direction to go in and the color sign to look for to people who can’t seem to get their clothing on the hook on my massage room door in spite of the fact that I physically touched the hook when I told them where to hang their clothes to, well, I told you to get under the sheet, yet here’s your bare ass smiling at me in all its un-sheet-covered glory.
I can understand if there’s a language barrier, but I’m mainly talking about native English-speakers who can’t seem to comprehend the simplest of directions.
Is there some psychologically based reason for this, some neurological wiring thingy that makes them unable to process “left, blue” or “clothes here on hook” or “under sheet”?
Or are they simply not paying attention?
