Thinking through accents

17 Nov

I started out to find the process through which one can eliminate their thinking accents. After research and talking to people who have apparently achieved this “elimination of thinking accent” I discovered that my original understanding of thinking accents was not complete. It turns out that people who appear to have eliminated their old thinking style still have it present in them. What they have learned is the art of thinking through it.

Applying this conclusion on the lives of close associates and my own I find it to  true. All of us still have the reminiscent of our old thinking present in us. Our current thinking style dominates or compensates for the deeper old ones. Its almost like having set of developed muscles which compensate for the weaker one. If due to some change in our lives if we start using the weaker muscles then over time they will become the dominant muscles taking over from once strong.

Dwelling more into thinking as a set of muscles analogy, what and how we think about various things develops different thinking muscles. You might remember the first time you tried something different and the unease you experienced. This virgin thought if repeated over time will ease our discomfort. Soon a time will come when you might not even be aware of this newly developed muscle in your brain and assume it was always there. Those of you who have lived and thrived in cultures different than you birth cultures will clearly know what I am talking about. We, me too, have learned things because of our love, curiosity, survival, or adventure needs.

Thinking through our accents is a possible and can be developed.  Lets first see what is a thinking accent.
