Liking and loving tendency
This tendency to love has its own set of side effects. It acts as a conditioning device and often distorts our perceptions. To make it simple, think of someone you love- your spouse, your kid, your favourite actor or cricketer. You could also think of any idea or belief that is very dear to you. Now ask yourself these questions:
- Do you tend to ignore their faults? Do you readily comply with their wishes?
- Do you favour people, products, and actions merely associated with them?
- Do you distort any unpleasant facts about them?
