Regardless of intent, background, or even facial expressions, it will make most people stare at others in most cultures. In fact, at any time, etiquette has decided that we should make people around us feel at ease. We don’t like it or want someone to stare at ourselves, especially strangers.
Staring at it is an offensive behavior, but the human brain seems to like this behavior. Are you male or female? Is it dangerous or safe? This is something we are almost constantly doing. Of course, most of us do this by observing the world around us and dealing with it. Even for the face of a stranger, a fairly good classification process is required. In the process, we quickly check the eyes, nose and mouth for identification.
If the prominent birth mark or scar on the lips is likely to overload our brain, what should we do? Is staring at it? From a certain point of view, this may be an argument, why it is rudely staring. For people with disabilities, this is a very dangerous and offensive behavior, or a person physically different from our own cultural or ethnic identity. But one study suggests that in our culture, the reaction to staring at ethnic minorities is not about judgment, but about understanding.
The researchers found that when looking at a normal person’s hand, the brain was quite quiet, but when a physically disabled person appeared, the participant’s brain showed great activity. What’s more interesting is that when they continue to watch, their brains are quietly the same level as when they watch normal people’s hands. This may mean watching people different from us is actually helping us learn and sympathize. Nonetheless, there are reasons for each existence and every difference in the world. I hope that we will eventually learn to recognize the objective existence of each person and no longer wear colored glasses to treat things that they cannot understand. Keep in mind that it is rude to stare at others for a long time.
