Don't you just hate it when you can predict what will happen next? No, I didn't mean looking into the future and actually foretelling what happens next, I just meant if things or people become predictable and easy to read. But then again just like what they always say, it is better to know something than to know nothing. So I guess predictability isn't so bad after all since I am not a huge fan of the whole ignorance is bliss belief.
Just recently, I asked someone certain questions that I already knew the answers to. I just wanted to test him if he would lie to me or not. Apparently, out of the 5 questions I asked, he lied 3 times and only answered truthfully twice. It bothers me that he did not even flinch even if he knew that I have a knack for these things. I can totally relate to other people who have been lied to before and have just pretended to be fools all along. It was a disappointing experiment but definitely a learning one.
Being predictable is boring as what most people say since there is no chance for surprises or sudden turn arounds in the course of events. Its like seeing a movie and actually knowing the dialogues and what will happen next but I can't give that as a personal example since I am fond of watching movies over and over again when I like them a lot and even memorizing the lines. Just saying, we need a little bit of mysterious factor in everything and anything apart from little doses (if not huge doses) of spontaneity for what is life without all of them?
Ever done such an experiment before? Try it! You will get results alright but I don't know if you will end up being happy about it in the end. Results vary on actual subjects to the experimentation process.
