MindSet Moment – How Does Your Mind React to This Photo?

MindSet is very telling (no pun intended) and this photo is a practical example of how the human mind works. When I received this picture from one of my Australian coaching clients, who has a twisted sense of humor, the first thought that flashed through my mind was, “How rude.” That actually surprised me because I always open his emails with anticipation, expecting to laugh. Then, I thought, “She has to be uncomfortable!”
As I read the copy below the photo, I began to chuckle and nod my head. Below is the full photo with all the details, but I have to admit, the part of the image in the thumbnail above is what first caught my attention.
What is your MindSet? Look below the photo for the evaluation of what it means depending on your first thoughts when you saw the photo. Leave a comment and let me know what you first saw.
I’ve taken the liberty of using the word “butt” where appropriate to insure G-rated content.
Analysis of the picture to the left can tell us a lot about how different people think. Study the photo then read the review below the photo.
Hmmm. Isn't this interesting?
– For young men, it's a picture of a lady with a nice butt but only the most observant will notice that she is crossing a street.
– The really observant will notice that she is wearing a thong.
– For older men, she appears to be a respectable woman – with a nice butt on her way to work.
– The perverts among them will imagine her naked.
– Wiser men will ponder the presence of mind of the photographer to take the shot in the face of such beauty and be grateful that they shared it with humanity.
– For half of the women, this is an ordinary woman, who should not have left home dressed that way.
 – The other half will think she is a slut but wonder where she bought that blouse.
– Older women will imagine the misery that the woman's butt will cause by the time she reaches 50.
 – But only children, the extremely intelligent, and the celibate will notice that the taxi is being driven by a dog.
Did you see the dog? I sure didn’t!
I’m reminded of a video about a moon walking bear among basketball players. The viewer is told to count the number of passes between the players. Several times during the video, the bear moon walks in clear view across the court.
After counting faithfully and actually watching the video three times, I was certain I had the correct number of passes. Not once did I notice the bear, but I did have the correct number of passes J
OK, time to confess your MindSet. What first came to mind when you first saw the picture? Please leave a comment below and tell me.

    Nope, didn't see the dog, just the full moon. Who knew they had Kardashians in Australia?

    My first thought was how did she get into those pants? My second thought was that she would look thinner in black.

    My first thought was wOwZa! And then I became completely distracted and annoyed that her purse had no business anywhere near her outfit. lol Took me a minute but I did find the dog. Reminded me of one of those Highlight books growing up looking for the hidden object. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing Joanie. Purse? Purse? Did she have a purse? lol

      I was unfamiliar with those the Highlight books until I saw Mama Peggy continually pick them up first when we go to a doctor’s office. When I looked at them, I realized they have great mind games and awareness exercises. Maybe that’s why Mama Peggy appears 20 years younger than her peers!
