Being put into “boxes” a sound bite at a time!

The “Boxes” Being put into categories or “boxes” is a natural thing to do and everyone does it. In the age of social media, 24 news networks and the massive amount of information thrown at any one individual you can’t help but put people into  these “boxes”.  If you read or heard anything about the Dunbar number, you would understand why this can’t be avoided.  You are put into a several boxes each day by a coworker, the individual serving you coffee, or the guy on the bus without even knowing it. In most cases, without saying a word to the person who puts you there.  These “boxes” are absolutely necessary for your brain to handle all the inputs we get everyday.
