A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
I often wonder what the other person really thinks of me. I am very sensitive about this and thrive with other people’s appreciation. On the other hand if I get to know about some negative things that someone is thinking about me I would probably feel bad for days. So I could probably do without this wonder chip that allows me to know what other people are thinking.
I already know the people most important to me well enough and would not need any wonder chips to know what they are thinking. Sometimes I can guess what my husband is going to say before he says it. Of course there are times when I wish he would say more of what he was thinking instead of being silent but sometimes you just need to give people their space.
After all I wouldn’t like others to have this chip and know what I was thinking all the time!
