Seeing in Black and White…Not Just a Metaphor

We sometimes refer to perspectives as “black and white” where there’s little room for moral negotiation.  This is actually more than just a metaphor.  Recent studies show that when one reads information on a black and white background, such as a newspaper, the information is perceived to have less moral wiggle room as information read alongside other colors.  This is a case where literal and metaphorical have very blurred lines.  What we see matters greatly to the reality we create.  And it doesn’t stop at the page.  Are you viewing the world with a negativity bias?  How does that weave into the reality you experience?

Where can you find the shades of gray today?
