Is it true that some people never gain self-awareness?

Being aware that you are unaware is the first step to becomining aware.
I still find it unbelievable that some people don't
hearing your voice is for losers, it limits your thinking speed to the speed of your voice. If you think of concepts it¡s much easier because you just have to recall them instead of recallind the words, forming the sentences and sounding them in your head
Yes but it's hard to tell who, it can be easy to think someone is an npc from the outside, usually though if you sit down and talk to someone for 10 minutes you can get a decent idea
PCs have it harders, because they spend more time in morbid self-reflection, as well as daydreaming. NPCs unironically do more in the world, and live better lives.
So the NPCs are the real PCs and the PCs are actually NPCs
no, NPCs are like bots that perform the same repetitive action over whereas PCs hate "grinding" and tend to get distracted because they actually have souls
it is a virtue to work hard, but if you're working hard for CEO Bergsteinwitz you are NPC
Cope as much as you want but living a better life and doing more with the small amount of time you've got here seems more like playing the game than daydreaming and morbid self-reflection.
Life isnt really about success, its about attaining wisdom and teaching it to the next generation. So working hard is good, but if you dont pass anything on you have wasted your whole life for creature comforts
enjoy your life consuming goyslop with your furbabies while I take risks and chances for something more then, I don't really believe you have no soul, but you certainly act like you don't have one
You're acting like you're something special. I don't believe you are.
Whose going to succeed if all a generation does is pass the baton to the next?
People who succeed in life have much more wisdom than those who just sit there navel gazing.
There are different degrees of self-awareness.
LULZ is full of retarded normies who think that "internal monologue" means anything; it doesn't.
Self-awareness has more to do with sensual perceptions and the rate at which you process data.
ADHD is not a virtue. Low pain tolerance, low stress resilience is not a virtue either.
LULZcels are largely failed normies who attempt to twist this into "I am le super special misunderstood genius snowflake wahhhh".
That seems extremely unlikely to me. Wouldn't p-zombie brains have noticeably different structures?
Even PCs spend most of the day in a state not using internal monogluge, lets say 50% of the day you use, 50% of the time you don't. The only difference is that NPCs use it 0% of the time, which is kind of weird for an PC to fathom, yet we ourselves aren't constantly using internal monologue and can see how it can be more of a drag than anything else at certain points.
Seems like a meme. I don't see any logical connection between people imagining apples and being self-aware. If you go to sleep do you stop being a conscious sapient being?
I talk to myself all the time in my head
>If you go to sleep do you stop being a conscious sapient being?
You become unconscious for that moment. Or maybe sub-conscious.
>I talk to myself all the time in my head
then you are a PC
Self awareness is not necessarily tied to the internal monologue.
I usually use internal monologue only with the first two or three words of each sentence in my thoughts. Consciously finishing all these sentences helps me think more systematically, but it certainly doesn't make me more self aware.
This whole obsession with internal monologues is just the 4chin take on "90% of people fail this test!" and other similar bullshit.
>I am intellectually and morally superior due to having internal monologue, without which independent thought is impossible because...
One of the worst contemporary "my side good your side bad" memes, way too easy to see through.
All people are kind of self aware. However I consider some people to be animals (to be hiperbolic) regardless because they kind of behave like heard animals more than I do a lot more.
some seem to develop it later than others at least. African children for instance reportedly take up to 7 years before they can recognize themselves in a mirror, compared to the normal age of a bit over a year. i wouldn't be surprised if some people never gained it.
>frican children for instance reportedly take up to 7 years before they can recognize themselves in a mirror,
so what do they think the figure in the mirror is?
someone else, presumably. just like other animals without self-awareness do.
Do they notice that the mirrior is 2d, doesn't talk back, and mimics their motions?
they just stood there and stared at it.
>The aim of the research was to document evidence of early MSR across cultures, using a shorter
and simplified version of the mark test. We found significant cultural variations across the seven
cultures. The first experiment shows that only 2 out of 82 18- to 72-month-old Kenyan children
manifested self-oriented behaviors toward the mark, most of them freezing while staring at their
specular image. This result is in sharp contrast with the multiple studies reporting that by 20 months
of age, 60% to 85% of Western middle-class children pass the mark test (Amsterdam, 1972;
Bertenthal & Fisher, 1978; Lewis & Brooks-Gunn, 1979).
Even my dogs figure out that the animal on the tv isnt real after they look behind the tv a few times. Are dogs smarter than black kids?
i once seen a dog attacking the figure at mirror and bumping its head into it like
>le African children mirror meme
This has never been proven, at least afaik. The study i see most people post to prove this explicitly states the African children don't "fail" in the sense that western children fail the test (laugh, treat their reflection as another person, etc.), and that it's likely a product of their culture that shuns children acting without the guidance of a parent or other authority figure
of course they had to come up with a cope, but it's been replicated in vanuatan children and they controlled for such factors to determine it was indeed a lack of self-recognition ability (though they also gave a possible parental cause for their delay)
>Consistent with previous cross-cultural research, ni-Vanuatu toddlers passed the MSR test at significantly lower rates (7%) compared to their Canadian counterparts (68%). Among a suite of social interactive variables, only mothers’ imitation of their toddlers’ behavior during a free play session predicted MSR in the entire sample and maternal imitation partially mediated the effects of culture on MSR. In addition, low passing rates among ni-Vanuatu toddlers could not be attributed to reasons unrelated to self-development (i.e., motivation to show mark-directed behavior, understanding mirror-correspondence, representational thinking). This suggests that differences in MSR passing rates reflect true differences in self-recognition, and that parental imitation may have an important role in shaping the construction of visual self-knowledge in toddlers
regardless it shows that it's not as much of a given as we may think
Maybe people with literally 50 IQ
I find the distinction between self-awareness and the lack of it odd, because it's simply an extremely personal term used to describe the experience of living. It's simply not something that can be actually be estimated because the result purely relies on the perpective of the person measuring it. For real though, some people just prefer filling their heads with thoughts about whatever is the "current thing" and gets them farthest in casual conversation over actual self-reflection. Self-reflection can give people a bad feeling about themselves and isn't immediatly if ever rewarded, which is why people often choose to not do it.
where do you draw the line between autism and depression
Depression is a symptom of autism.
One may appear as the other. Being depressed while autistic turbocharges the symptoms of both.
There's just varying depths of introspection and meta-cognition, nobody has ever become truly self aware.
Not that that's even possible.
>nobody has ever become truly self aware.
what about da buddha?
thats budai not buddha
> fake smiles, broken speech, poor reaction time, staring off randomly, doing things without thinking, depression
That's just autism. We have a situation where autist think normies are the npcs, and normies think autist are the npcs.
a person cannot find himself both inside or outside the action at the same time.
why monks are so slow and all their movements are simple but with intention.
self awareness is a constant recenter.
humans water like mind is ment to drift.
to resist against this
and build something in place.
you must remain centered.
know who you are
know what you are doing
know why you are doing it.
but once you do it.
you must commit.
and provide for any contingencies if you can.
awareness of environment still has its isues with misintrpretation.
and people develop centertain types of awarenesses about themselves or others
how these line up with or shape reality may vary.
