    Do you see the world in black and white or colour?

    Sometimes there is just right and wrong,in other words black and white but putting things in perspective requires a more lenient or colourful view or we become frustrated between the difference between the ideal we are striving for and reality

    I think things would be better if we had/saw in definitive black and white lines/color. Grey areas cause so many issues, loop holes etc and allows people not to be held accountable for their actions. Everyone should be accountable for what they do.

      Exactly. In some circumstances a firm focus on black and white works but there are colours as well as grey. Thanks for your answer.

    Do I see the World in black and white or color or colour? Perhaps seeing it in black and white would over-simplify many issues and result in wrong outcomes or solutions. Although sometimes we over-complicate or over-colorize/colourize matters and tend never to arrive at the optimum solution.
    Thus, I believe we must discern what is best; sometimes there is indeed an uncomplicated, more simplified black & white solution; yet, sometimes this black & white approach does not address the issue and it becomes somewhat like placing a small band aide or duct tape on a significantly deep and cancerous wound... I always love to mention the iceberg in the water parallel. Sometimes all we truly see is the tip of the iceberg; yet what lies out of our vision is indeed the most significant part... Thus, the significant challenge is discerning the "real" issue...
    On an other note "me" grandfather and great grandpa Captain Peter Connor's best friend and fellow sea Captain was a McBride; although they didn't reside in Ole Kathleen both their "fadders" did, maybe even Donegal. They resided in Harbourville, (NOTE: not Harborville), Nova Scotia (see picture above).

      Thank you for such a balanced answer. You cover the bases well in terms of the basics of black and white and how we compensate with colour/color to accept unacceptable behaviour
      Will wait and see but this looks like a best answer to me.

      Thank you, Kate; my Better-Half has the same name. She is of Irish Campbell ancestors via her da as I am of O' Connor ancestors... It is most wonderful to communicate with a McBride once again...

    When you see things in black & white you gain insight.
    When you see things in grey it causes you to delay.
    For time purposes sometimes it's just not practical to examine the various nuances of a situation or circumstance. Whenever possible it's best to avoid the paralysis of analysis.
    Sometimes you just have to go with your gut.
    Finding "clarity" is essentially seeing things in black & white.
    Oftentimes it's not about "right" or "wrong" but rather "agree" or "disagree". Naturally those relationships where people "agree" more often than not tend to be happier and longer lasting. Who knew?! smile

    Black and white could be said is pragmatic while also is known as all-or-nothing thinking. The later is used at times for a diagnostic criteria for psychology. With philosophy it is known as dichotomy and false reasoning.

    Answering the first question is I see the world in color thankfully. However, I love black and white photos, yet know it is the shades of gray discovered with light that offers distinction. I accept there is a right and a wrong, but I realize there are circumstances and situations too.

    An example is marijuana is legal in Colorado. Whether I agree or disagree is not what this question asks. It asks if it is right or wrong. It is apparently right in Colorado as the law says so while is wrong in other states. Ponder black and white.

      Right and wrong correspond to black and white. Considering grey areas only muddies the water. There are circumstances where one has to make choices to be able to live with oneself based on the tenets of right and wrong
