Making assumptions about other's motives
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
I was driving on a divided highway this morning. I was driving 65 mph which was the speed limit. A car started passing me and I noticed I had unconsciously increased my speed by a couple of miles an hour. I eased back to 65 and remembered comments made by my brothers in the past.
They would complain that other cars would speed up when they tried to pass them and then go back to their prior rate of speed as if to intentionally be irritating. It made me realize how often we become upset because of perceived motives when no such motives exist.
