An article I read a few days ago, How to influence the way other people see you, explains how there are only minor correlations between how you think you are viewed and how people view you.
"What matters about you, to someone else, is whatever has most meaning for them – not for you."
If you have the feeling that you are not getting through to someone, good chance you aren't!
The article triggered a memory.
I was working on two large healthcare projects:
Constructivism is a view of learning based on the belief that knowledge isn't a thing that can be simply given by the teacher at the front of the room to students at their desks. Rather, knowledge is constructed by learners; they are the builders and creators of meaning and knowledge.
Here is what happened:
After all this I understood constructivist theory well enough to lead a workshop, with confidence and conviction. I also became more sensitive to how so many of our misunderstandings and miscommunications are rooted in the fact that each of us generates our perceptions of the world and those they encounter through a unique lens.

I love the idea that what we think people think of us is not necessarily what they think of us. I can think of a few people who would be helped by recognizing that.

Susan, I love the idea too! And, especially love what your daughter said and thought at 5!
