Numbers, and the predictability of human beings.


Recently I recognised a huge change within: I realized I could easily detach myself from emotions, while still empathising with the other party.

It is probably great training from the bridal industry..!🙂 Because you see, when you consider situations against a socially-agreed upon “objective” standard, you can guard your own heart effortlessly.

That is to say, when you can map out each party’s interests in the system, a definite outcome is inevitable. And that’s when you gain full independence from any other human being’s opinion.

I can do emotional mapping quite easily now. Which is to say I can map out your emotions, and therefore predict them since I can spot patterns.

This is possible because unresolved emotional baggages are consistent.

I can also do logical thinking easily now as well, which is to say I can map out your interests after observing you in your context for a while.

This is also possible because underlying (financial, usually) interests do not usually change, in any given context.

The confidence behind prediction is always about emotions bounded by the knowledge of interests.

Therefore, to be unprofessional is to take things personally. But that too, can be predicted.

Numbers don’t lie. Interpretation of numbers might, just as people lie.

But people will never deviate from their unresolved emotional baggages, and neither would they deviate much from their interests.
