mind and images....

when we meet or interface with a person, do we really "meet" them or our "images" of them? linda goodman and co. have indicated sufficient patterns in human personalities, but, are they generic guidelines or something more specific. The moment we know a person belongs to a particular sun or moonsign, our associations begin; we "expect" a certain behavioural/personality pattern of the person. However. if we do a random survey of our own friends and acquaintances, while there maybe certain generic similarities, there are also discernible differences.There are so many parameters which influence the life and personality of a person, much of which we are unaware of.
Our perceptions of a person are as good or as bad as our ability to analyse and this includes a dynamic awareness of the assumptions therein and the mental formations and conditionings that color us.
