  1. So a man sat down and thought that his life was worthless and something needed to be changed. Of course, he doesn't really want to change anything, and in general everything is “normal” for him, but he wants to satisfy a momentary need: endorphins don't lie on the road. Here he will look at a 5-minute video clip with facts that he is already aware of, smile, make no mental effort and go further to surf the Internet.

  2. You will be surprised, but everyone uses the head differently. Neither the ability to reason sensibly, nor the “moral law” is given to a person from birth, it is the result of socialization. And it doesn't work in such a way that, for example, a child naturally develops empathy on his own, observing others and drawing parallels between himself and them, and drawing conclusions from this about how to behave with people. In most cases, parents need to sit down and directly explain and inspire, or from early childhood specifically develop the ability to think independently. But parents are all different – some people think too much is obvious, some are not very good at pedagogy, some just don't have enough time. The influence of school, peers, etc. is also different for everyone. So it is natural that many people only at a relatively mature age “think” about things that seem elementary to others.

  3. I guess other people use the head for the same thing you do. It's just that people don't usually think about things that have nothing to do with them. However, when such “things” come into our field of vision, we think about them. The phrase “makes you think” was also ironically used by Nabokov, adding “whatever it means” in parentheses after it, but there were things that Nabokov himself never thought about – and if he encountered something new for his thinking, he probably also had to think about something for the first time. The whole point, of course, is in the word “forces” – but just this phrase itself has become a common expression, which is much easier to use than independently choosing words that are more accurate and successful.

  4. We live in a world of information noise, and as such, there is also procrastination. Most people don't tend to sit down and think a little; weigh the pros and cons. It's easier to pay money for unwanted training, read a book on psychology in which there is a lot of water, than specifics, and in general, why load yourself? It's better to watch mamas. �

    If you don't have to be so categorical, a person may not have reached this point yet through thought, so he feeds through the prism-gradually putting together the puzzle of “ideas/thoughts”, etc.
