My Brain Filtering System

As an impulsive person it took me some time to work on the finer art of conversation, to be patient, smile, nod, and listen. Many times I find myself opting out of conversations of sex, religion, and politics.  My brain calmly begins to filter if I disagree on the point of the commenter  and switch gears to another topic of conversation.

However, if you catch me on a really bad day my brain does something funny – wires malfunction, it short circuits and sparks begin to fly. Such as if  I see a picture of Bill Clinton with Porn Stars come across my tweet space after a really long day. I get a little pissy!

So!  Bill Clinton, I ask you “What the Fuck?”

How does your brain filtering system work?

  1. You just gave me a badly needed laugh for the evening. I saw that photo, and all I can say is, “I wish I could have been an invisible dinner companion while Bill and Hil were discussing that one!” I suspect there wasn’t a whole lot of filtering going on there.

  2. I, too, lose my brain–>mouth filter on certain (OK, most) topics. The Clinton pic made me laugh because it could have been and advertisement for one of those erectile dysfunction pills. “After a long night of partying, even the most virile of Presidents sometimes can have a difficult time with arousal, despite a duo of beautitful porn stars. Next time that happens to you, try Elongate Extended Release.”

  3. Love it, lmao!

    There are moments… and yeah, from afar, I saw good old Bill getting his future viagra fix. I tried to avert myself from that one. Let’s just hope Hillary said what I didn’t, in close range, with emphasis.

    I try to avoid actual politics on my blog; it’s there for writing fiction. I’ll tackle rights, and do a lot on Choice, but actual this person vs that person, not so much. The competition thing triggered me the other day, I’m just tired of the notion that *everything* is solvable through competition. It has a place, a good strong place in society, but it shouldn’t invade everything. I didn’t go after profit, but it does go hand in hand. It has a place, know where it doesn’t, and our schools are one. Grrrrr.

    1. I’m glad I made you laugh! I couldn’t resist being a little naughty yesterday 😉 If you were the secret service agent who would you protect? Or do they each have their own assigned team? I think Bill will need all the help he can get after that one. The old bugger!

      I have to agree competition needs to stay out of the schools and we need to focus on creating a future based on collaboration and innovation.

  4. Wait. I’m supposed to FILTER my brain? No wonder it feels like it is in flames much of the time………..

    Like Hilary above, my face gives me away. Every. Single. Time.

    1. Giggles! I have a condi face and works like a charm. Sometimes…

      Most of the time I make horrible expressions and when I feel the eye roll coming on everyone within my proximity is in trouble 😉

  5. I think hormones and stress were key ingredients to breaking down my filtering system. Lately, I’ve been lucky…I have no hormones and everybody leaves me alone. lololol. ha ha ha.

  6. Have to say, I love when the filter mode breaks down…lol! Sometimes we need it broken and not have it repaired until the holidays are over! teehheee

  7. I’ve recently had a safety switch installed between the brain and the mouth… I hope to have one installed for the nervous system to prevent the facial expressions of o_0 and :O from making untimely appearances. Now, if I could just stop: “Seriously!?”, “Really?!” and “WTF!” from escaping BEFORE the switch is thrown…

    1. Giggles! My dang switch short circuited for the whole weekend. I think all I did was make facial expressions and exclaim WTF! I’m trying to switch my straight face on for the rest of the week and stay out of trouble ;0

  8. OH, my, and, oh-yes, I, too, will usually bow-out of talking about sex, religion, and politics, not that I am ashamed of how I believe in all three subjects. If someone REALLY insists on knowing, I will share my beliefs and feelings on the subject, but I refuse to make an argument out of it. 🙂

  9. Mine is most like your top diagram. I used to turn everything into an argument, but now I find things much more pleasant if I just stop, let talk time run out, and move the conversation along in uncomfortable discussions. I choose not to attend most those “discussions” anymore, at least in my brainspace. 😉

  10. Great thoughts! I have been musing much as of late on the mind’s ability to filter so much of what we hear and how we perceive. Sometimes it wroks to our advantage and sometimes it limits us to what we only suspect we know. Love the graphics.
