I was considering to myself my frequent inability to properly see a situation from multiple points of view. Examples being the other person, yourself, the other person while having understanding of everything motivating you to act the way you do, your own perspective with the above understanding about the subject, an outsider with only outward perceptions, an outsider with full understanding of both party's motivations, etc. It created in me this question, which is a way for me to easily trick myself into being forced to consider what I may have difficulties with otherwise.
If someone said all of the questions you answered on IQ, and all of the personas asking them and your opinion of the questions they were asking, and your opinion of the individual; were all intentional and designed to instigate a particular answer or reaction in you, the reader? If this doesn't make sense, it'd be like if @Stingray portrayed himself as some variety of needy or lost soul, leading you to draw judgements about this persona with the intention of leading you to a conclusion you would not have reached had it simply been told to you outright or the situation had been discussed with you knowing you were the true subject matter?
To me this inspires a huge amount of consideration about myself and the details about myself I have the most trouble observing objectively or acknowledging after observation, or about the lessons I have most trouble learning.
I can say as expressed in the movie "The Circle of Iron (The Silent Flute)" that there are teachers that point the way and those that point the wrong direction. Those that point the wrong direction force you to evaluate your own thoughts. They make you learn not by listening and just doing as told but fighting what you believe is wrong to find what is right. It makes you find the answer and believe you had it without any help. The teachers are many and most are not even aware they are teaching you.
So regardless of up down or sideways, forward or backward you progress.

A central issue points to the deep cleverness of All That Is to try to subvert It's own self centric tendencies ... God in duality experiencing Itself in contrast to itself ... positive and negative emotions exist for the sake of contrast and 'don't shoot the messenger' - it's all good!

the fact is that if you would have full understanding of every point of view, in a perfect world every one else would have the same understanding you would not have any difficulty. but since this world is not perfect because some do not see or hear and cannot properly split that pieces of wood and lift that stone that they are trap under and they seek to trap other with that stone. even if you would be perfect no one would notice. because you would know better then to quarrel with blind people that did not wash the inside of the cup. advice: if you are perfect stay quiet and do not tell any one they will not accept it and will want to stone you and they will make a big deal of the speck of saw dust in your eye and they will not remove the beam that they have in their own eye.
who is with out sin to cast the first stone? by what measure will you judge also will you be judge. even if you are perfect have discernment and wisdom make righteous decision but do not judge. have mercy and love the neighbor as yourself.
after all it is not what you put in your mouth that will defile you, it is what comes out of it that will defile you.
will also add if one things that he is perfect and get mad do not see do not listen and judge people with is measure with out mercy is he perfect? or is the one telling the truth that is quiet that have mercy and a good heart the one that is perfect?
there is a difference between every one as above as below, yet there is a difference also as below as above, yet above no one seek to be better or higher then is neighbor. again I tell you love the neighbor as your self.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
