When it is obvious to anyone that you are a propinquity, they become a little bit more skeptical. It’s not a good habit to have, and there is nothing wrong with it, but when it is obvious to anybody that you are a propinquity, they become less and less willing to pay attention. If we try to change ourselves, we’ll be more likely to ignore our emotions, and less likely to think about it every time we wipe our ass.
I guess we should say that the propinquity effect is also related to the “inheritance” effect, because once you start to like your relatives, and then start paying attention to them, you start to notice how they don’t seem to like you. We are still human and we like certain things that our parents are. We learn that, and then we do things to try to change that.
The propinquity effect is the phenomenon of people being more sensitive to each other. If you have two people who are connected by a common ancestor, then for all intents and purposes, they share that ancestor, and most likely have a similar emotional range. That’s why so many of us are prone to being very protective and worried about each other.
The propinquity effect is a general phenomenon. The main thing, when we’re on propinquity, is when we’ve learned that there are two people who have different emotions and who are the same. This makes it more difficult for us to be too sensitive about our emotions to be really aware of them. Another thing that comes up in the background, is that a person who doesn’t have a common ancestor is really more sensitive to one another.
Propinquity effect is a really good example of something called “polygenic inheritance.” It is a phenomenon that occurs when a person has ancestors who are very much alike. It can also result when a person inherits a common set of mental traits from a very high percentage of his ancestors. This is what we see in the video game “Monument Valley.” The first-person perspective of the game is really good at making you think about your own ancestry.
When you’re on autopilot for so long that you forget you’re on autopilot, then you can’t decide what to do. When you have a lot of choices, you’ve got to act on them.
We call it the propinquity effect because youre in your family home, and you meet someone who you see as a relative, and it feels like youve found your father or something. And youre looking at them and realizing theyre the same person. That feels like a really positive thing. I have family members who were in the first-person perspective game Monument Valley, and they said that that was a very positive experience that they would never forget.
The main reason I say that is because a lot of the most popular video games have characters that come to life. In that way theyre like a character in a movie that grows up and becomes the person that the player plays for the first time. This is definitely a very positive thing, and I think that it is important to recognize the propinquity effect because of its obvious effect on our lives, our relationships, and our sense of identity.
I don’t know that any of us would be as comfortable with this feeling if we were in our physical bodies. For some reason we think our lives are more important than they actually are. But if we look at our relationships and our identity, that’s exactly the same. When you die, you’re gone for good, and the only thing that you have left is the memories you’ve made with your loved ones.
The propinquity effect is a great example of the “mood congruent” effect that we see in our friends and family when we look at photos of them. A person is more likely to smile or laugh when they look at a photo of someone they consider “close,” and less likely to be depressed and sad if they see someone they consider “far away.
