Between a rock and a hard place

Some conflicts can be hard to get out of

Facing trouble with no escape

When facing even the toughest challenges, how we view them can make a difference. Even seeing the angry man in suit in front of you as a raging bear can make him look less scary… compared to a real bear.

About Museum of Psychology – Visualizing psychology
We understand reality at least through a combination of impressions, metaphors, images, stories and experiences. But also through our dreams, understandings, feelings, music, walk of life, directions, expectations, relations… and much more.

Much of this have in common that we can somehow sketch up maps and drawings of these places, trails and situations. Here on Museum of Psychology I (Frits Ahlefeldt) am drawing up a slowly growing map of our many landscapes of understanding.
