    Irrationality is what happens when you have faulty beliefs. Stereotypes are not inherently "bad" -- rather, they are classification systems, and they can be very useful in encountering new input. An extension of selective attention is filling in the gaps. Perceiving homeless people differently is only one example of a perception shift, but there are many others all around us. The more we are aware of these types of errors, the more equipped we are to work around them in our communications. In other words, your success was your own, but your failure was someone else's fault.

    Why should we have such a capacity in the first place and what in the world are we to do with it? There are six categories: pseudo-listening, selective attention, stage hog, rebuttal tendency, closed mindedness, and competitive interrupting. Words could make them into a whole again; doing that by writing was a way of saving her own life. Finally, in competitive interrupting,listeners use interruptions to take control of the conversation. In this poor listening practice, we pay attention only to the parts that we want to hear. Inevaluating the quality of messages, we determine whether the message makes sense.

    In fact, there are many facets of homelessness you may not be aware of. Finally, we can respond to someone by questioning. But how far are you willing to go in your life to become happier and healthier? Here, our goal is to evaluate or analyze what we hear. The self-fulfilling prophecy lays at the foundation of this concept; a statement that alters actions and therefore becomes true. One day they got introduced to a new woman who didn't treat them well and who seemed to be arrogant according to their own perception.
