The following is a statement made via modern communication and presented for you as a 'pop quiz' in analysis.
Statement Analysis is applied as if 'clay blocks' rather than cement blocks. This means that the principles are both strong, yet pliable.
Let's say, for example, that a text message has no pronouns. We would not conclude "distancing language" because the context shows no pronouns as its norm, or its "baseline." We shift the "expectation" to abbreviated message, therefore, which will then have the expectations of "no pronouns" which means that any deviation from the norm is important or 'sensitive' to the subject.
Yet, if there are no pronouns but one suddenly appears, we know that, psychologically, there is an "appearance" of the person into the statement making it "very important."
We always note the first entrances of a person, or pronoun "I" into a statement.
A bare bones statistic tells us that statements that begin with "I" may be of higher reliability than those which do not. I have found this a reliable guide over the years.
*Always note the first entrance (s) of the pronoun "I" in a statement. It is always significant. We do not always know why, unless guided by the context which follows.
Someone posted this publicly and it is a very good example of how a non-trained person feels intuitively a subject's priority. The anonymous commentator posted it as this blog with the thought that it was an example of priority with the question:
"Do the apples fall far from the trees?" unasked.
Principle: Language reveals our priorities.
Pronouns connect us to our priorities.
Here, the anonymous poster asserted an example of seeking to capitalize on the death of Amanda Blackburn.
To this assertion, let us see if Statement Analysis agrees.
I want you to carefully follow the pronouns and find out when does the writer (subject) "enter" the statement.
Psychologically, when the does writer "enter" the statement?
You are to answer these two questions for this pop quiz:
1. When does the pronoun "I" first show up in this statement?
2 What is the context of the introduction of the person, via the pronoun "I" in the statement?
om_yogi "Life doesn't come with a manual; it comes with a mother." -unknown ️ Today's #SCMovember pose is #paschimottanasana This has been an incredibly emotional time for my family. My cousin's pregnant wife was attacked in her home yesterday morning, and this morning she left her earthly body. 🏼 Please continue to pray for her husband, her one-year old son, her family and the rest of us who are heartbroken and stunned at this horrific crime. I am going to keep this short and sweet. This is the way we teach forward bends at @shantiyogastudio. The torso must connect with the legs, folding through the hip creases and bringing the armpits to the knees. Over time the legs press straighter but the upper body remains connected to the legs. Show us your #paschimottanasana and tag @shantiyogastudio and myself for a chance to win a prize, and don't forget about my FREE yoga event this Saturday sponsored by @ketelone #yoga #prayforindy #prayersplease #godisincontrol #mybabygirl #mybabyyogi #5monthsold 2w
