Content Theory

While we were visiting the countryside for a study-tour, I,  a teacher, got different content as answers when I individually inquired "What's the content that you see here?" to each one of my four brightest students.
Photo Prompt - Magpie Tales

Student 1: "I see a superb scenic spot to sit and paint masterpieces, take photographs, and write poetry or a book!"

Student 2: "I see peace and tranquility and a perfect spot for an eco-tourism resort."

Student 3: "I do not see much trees here and thus I see a suitable space for tree-plantation and a future forest."

Student 4: "I see no buildings or development here and thus this is the ideal place to build a new city and factories."

I was contented that my theory about different perspectives had been proved right yet again.

Do you believe that the content and our contentment varies as per our outlook? Do share in the comments below.

  1. Absolutely, if beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, perspectives lie in the minds of the beholders!

  2. Dropping in from WT! I see it as a palce to kick back n relax. Something abt it would inspire me to write tales ...

  3. Absolutely! It's about perception and connotation...each of us have different view points and that's what your post wonderfully shows!

  4. It never ceases to amaze me (which in itself amazes me) how MANY perspectives come from a simple situation like a scenic view. I am always taking pause to remind myself that everyone doesnt think like I do! Thanks for linking in with six sentence stories! The new cue is up for next week if you're interested! This was great! Thanks!

  5. What we see can even be filtered by our age and what we value. An interesting one.

  6. I can't tell you how many times I've seen this difference in perception with others. I'm with Gemma that age has something to do with it, or even current events that come to mind. In the photo, I'm reminded of floods.

  7. offcourse ... we are all diferent and view things differrently

    I see a beautiful place to have a picnic


  8. This is quite interesting ~~~

  9. Definitely think that what we bring to a situation has everything to do with how we interpret anything. Always a thought- and conversation-provoking question.

  10. An interesting experiment. I was somewhat taken aback by Student 4's vision of the future!

  11. Wow. I love reading your students' different perspectives. I guess, in many ways, they are all right!

  12. Oh yes! Everyone's perception comes from their life experiences too.

  13. Yes of course the viewpoints we possess are more a function of who we are than what we see..


  14. Absolutely yes. Views are differing always. Nice post..

  15. Phlegmatic Choleric Sanguine and some other one , as the ancient greeks liked ro point out

  16. True, Anita. Perspective defines our opinions.
    Have a great day!

  17. Leave it to students to see the future.

  18. we don't see things as they are but we see things as we are. perspective differs from each person. good one Anita.

  19. Absolutely! We all view things differently. We look at situations, events and interpret what other people say and do, according to our own set of past experiences, culture, faith, values!

  20. Everyone has a different thinking about study and other works.
