Yeah – everybody gets “emotionally moved” differently. For me, it happens fast so I’m always on my guard against it.
If I don’t pay attention, next thing I know, I’m thinking what someone else wants me to think, feeling what they want me to feel.
Practicing it since I was like 8 yrs old (first time I noticed a TV commercial’s bullshit when I found myself getting excited over an amazing robotic toy truck – and 1/2 way through the commercial, I was like, “WAIT KENNY STOP! WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE!?”
and I started analyzing the commercial and my reaction and it pissed me off when I realized what they were doing to me.
All these years later, doesn’t matter – it’s still something I have to watch-out for
