Confirmation Bias: Depression seems to reveal what reality is. (self.depression) Do you guys ever feel like depression just reveals what reality is? Like when I'm on my Nope, sorry. There is a scientific reason you feel empty and why you feel so sure of your conclusions. Depression sets you up neurologically for confirmation bias and stagnation. if you've been depressed for more than a few months, your brain is physically disabled. Depression damages the hippocampus, the part of your brain that forms new neurons and interweaves them as you make new memories, new connections, new knowledge, new habits, new emotions, new perspectives, new motivations and inspirations. Healthy brains grow new neurons as we learn. Neural growth slows way down if you're depressed, to the point where new neurons can't keep up with learning, and most new info and experiences won't stick. When a depressed brain interacts with the world, it can no longer incorporate new experiences to adjust old thought cycles or modify old knowledge concepts with new information. Experiences should rearrange and teach your brain, but that happens less and less when your brain is depressed. Instead experiences roll right off you without effecting anything. You become stagnated, and thoughts seem to confirm your biases instead of contradicting them. The rest of your brain is not fully accessing your emotional center. You think that makes the world flat and meaningless. It really means your emotion center (amygdala) has stopped contributing emotions to your brain and world view like it normally would. You're not enlightened. Your brain is broken. That's harsh, but it's important. The damage is 100% reversible. Stuff like exercise, medication, and meditation grows back the damage and returns your neural growth to a normal rate after a few months. permalink embed oldmanyellsatcloud: tenderwear: Found this reddit post.

This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. </p> <p>This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. </p> <p>A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. </p> <p>Here, I’ll make you a better ad.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="625" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_ndd2eba6jq1r3ylr6.png"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_p95fekSKrG1rw09tq_540.png" alt="image" data-orig-height="625" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_ndd2eba6jq1r3ylr6.png"/></figure><p>Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees<i> this</i> and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. </p> </blockquote> <p>Always reblog</p></blockquote>

<p>Who’s Alex?</p>
<p>Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, <i>the boy is the focal point of the ad.</i></p>
<p>English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. </p>
<p>This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. </p>
<p>A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. </p>
<p>Here, I’ll make you a better ad.</p>

Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees<i> this</i> and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. </p>
