  1. I thought about it… I think most of all my perception of the world was influenced by someone else's gratuitous cruelty and nastiness to others. When I first saw that an adult can harm a living being for no apparent reason,it changed my world and my attitude towards the human community. It was difficult-I grew up as a home-grown child-I stayed at home with my grandmother until school, I didn't communicate much with my peers. I came to school and was stunned…

  2. I was very much influenced by a close friend of mine who I ended up falling in love with, but that's another story. It was she who taught me to believe in myself, to help others and to forget about other people's opinions. It was because of her that I started to study normally. It was because of her that I began to treat people normally. And I will be forever grateful to her.�

    Plus, Dima Larin really influenced me, but not in the same way as my friend.

  3. I don't remember how old I was. I saw the film, also on a video cassette based on the novel by Carl Sagan (later my favorite scientist)-Contact. I was so impressed with him! A child .. Who began to think about the universe, about how huge and unknown our universe is ! When my peers were playing “rubber bands”, I read the essay “Pale Blue dot”,and to this day I do not know anything more delightful and peaceful than the realization of how small we are, and at the same time special!This is a great source of inspiration .. Oh,I can talk about this endlessly )) In general, the perception of the world went so well that the motto for life was again a quote from Carl Sagan:”I don't want to believe it. I want to know.” And there is nothing more valuable in me than this thirst for knowledge . That's the story)

  4. Speaking about myself, I can note that absolutely all objects and events affect a person, and sometimes even small events (like a light cut) can have more impact than seemingly large events (like a promotion at work).

    Specifically, as a person, I was most influenced by three things: the Christian faith, the music of the 60s, and ancient philosophy. And, in fact, I listed them in chronological order of occurrence in the course of my life.

    How did these phenomena affect me? Christianity, and specifically Protestantism, of which I was a parishioner for quite a long time, helped me avoid just elementary stupid things, and at the same time reading the Bible and believing in God developed in me a sense of the absolute, something perfect, gave me a certain reverence for knowledge and interest in knowledge (in this case, God, but this skill is easily transferred to another object).

    The music of the 60s liberated me, made me free from dogma and broadened my horizons, made me tolerant and just an interesting person 🙂

    Studying ancient philosophy at the University gave me, in turn, the basis of philosophical thinking and worldview, the ability to move from the abstract to the concrete, to think in an orderly manner, and much more.
