Short idea (164): The nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty, can be used to illustrate a psychological point. Once the big egg fell and cracked and broke, all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put him back together again. We are like this, psychologically. We start whole, but then we fall and crack up and break, and then nothing can put us back together again. We long to be whole again. Is it possible?
Psychological Exercise 6: The Whole Picture
This is an exercise to demonstrate "the Whole Picture" with respect to perception of colors and to feelings and moods.
The last few pages contain the "punch line" or the "moral" of the exercise.
Each of the next 25 pages will contain an image of a color such as this
and also a multiple choice question.
You may choose more than one answer for each.
In some cases, no answer may fit perfectly.
Please feel free to come up with your own answers. That is, please don't feel limited by the choices.
There are 29 pages (including this one), and, for the full effect of the exercise, it is necessary to go in order and not skip ahead, especially not to the end.
These questions are not meant as a quiz or test, so there are no ratings as to right or wrong, correct or incorrect or even a place to record your answers.
The questions are meant only to stimulate self-exploration and thought about the meaning and place of good and bad feelings.
