TRY THIS! Headphones with No Music! OBSERVATION EXPERIMENT!

The next time you are in a crowded area or a place that interest you and you don’t have much to do just put your headphones in (with your device of course) with no sound. JUST OBSERVE. I’m not saying eavesdrop necessarily but watch how people react differently when they believe you cannot hear them or you are not paying attention to them. They may start looking into you phone. talking about private conversations. they may say random, funny, and even rude things right beside you about you or others because they thing you cannot hear them.

Moreover, watch how most people will leave you alone to your thoughts so that you can really take in the world. I tend to do this in the places I do not like to be most often to make the experience a bit more enjoyable. Yes, this includes Wal-Mart…though I still don’t like it…it just makes the experience a bit more bearable.

It’s also fun to see people do random things when you have headphones in as if because you cannot hear that suddenly you cannot see as well. I have never understood that phenomenon. So you believe that I am blind too because I have headphones in. Do deaf and blind really go together every time? People are so ignorant. I watch people suddenly stand right in front of me and do funny and disgusting things. Ranging from running into people, tripping over things (and looking to see if anyone saw it), stealing, pranking people, digging up their nose, scratching random places, and even indecent public displays of affection that would likely get you arrested if people knew…

Sometimes I wonder why did that just happen in front of me? Then I just try to politely get up from my front row seat and walk away as if I did not notice and keep walking. However, if you ever need an interesting blog, picture, moment to think about human nature, just walk through a park your favorite public space and do this. You would be amazed. I see some of the most kindest gestures happen. I see some of the sweetest moments between couples old and young. I see babies and animals playing. I see kids in their purest and most innocent phases enjoying life.

I watch people interacting with life as it was meant to be without you reacting to them. It is truly both a great experience and interesting one. So try it when you have some time.

          LOL, why thank you, but it just happened to be something I kept noticing during workout and walks…And the days I did not have them…I almost regretted it because I could not observe as a bystander…I felt like I was part of the reaction process. I watched those in headphones get to have all the fun. Then the other day my blog about wal-mart hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized I did not have my headphones in, LOL. That’s how she pulled me in that conversation…I could not pretend I did not hear her or was deep in conversation with someone on my phone because I did not have my headphone in LMBO!!! 😀

              YES! I use to do it more in college when walking home alone from classes late in the evening but I continued to do it when random people were around and I did not feel comfortable. It helped me prevent conversation, LMBO

    LOL This is the best!! Honestly, something I have done is pretend to be on the phone while I am driving just so I could pray out loud or talk to myself LOL! This idea is right up my alley:p

      LOL well I just plain talk to myself and get caught so maybe I should be a little more smooth about it like you and maybe people will stop cutting their eyes at me with the side eye like I’m bonkers…I’m just saying…I have a lot on my mind and I learned long ago if you say it out loud a few times you recall it better. Of course the very moments I do it that someone walks around a corner and catches me talking to myself. Or when I am a bit upset or annoyed I mutter to myself and bam here someone comes and I look a bit silly, LMBO.

        LOL I am the same way. I do it even more at home and my husband is always asking, “What did you say? Are you talking to me?” He’s so used to me talking to myself, I just say, “No, it’s not to you” and he knows the deal lol
