Day 3305: Projection

Projection, in psychology, is when people ascribe their own thoughts onto others.

My projection is that you might want some definition of “projection,” here and now.

That second definition describes projection as a behavior rather than as thoughts, which reflects people’s thinking that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interrelated.

I think there is a lot of projection going on these days, making it difficult for us to understand other people’s differing opinions and choices. I think the best we can do is to be aware of our own projections, so we can leave room for the fullness and complexity of other beings.

Do you see projection in any of my images for today?


In honor of National Thesaurus Day, here are synonyms for “projection.”


Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “projection.”

My final projection of this blog post is to assume that others are grateful, every day, for wonderful people like YOU.

  1. Thank you for sharing your wonderful walk, Ann. It’s been too darn blustery here the last two days for me to take my daily stroll, substituting car-clearing and path-shoveling instead.

  2. Hi Ann, I think I might project some of my warm weather over to you, if you would project some of your excess water over to us! Hope you have a warm, cozy day, filled with luscious hot chocolate and fluffy cats to keep you company!

  3. About 2 centuries ago I trained as a 16mm projectionist with the Services Kinema Corporation so I could show films to soldiers in their spare time!

  4. thanks for projecting your thoughts, ideas, questions and pics on us, each and every day. pets don’t tend to project, they unapologetically embrace who they are. I like that about them.

  5. You always project your personal warmth and sense of fun, Ann. ❤
