How to learn to make subtle observations

Classes for the development of observation is better to start with a hearing training. Yes, yes, not by sight, but by hearing. The fact is that the person perceives from воспри to ⅘ information about the world around. And only the rest comes from the sense of smell, touch, taste and hearing. However, only hearing is the same “long-range” feeling as vision, so it is easier to learn to segment perception precisely from hearing.
Sit down, close your eyes and divide the audible world into several conditional zones: flat (internal sounds), street (nearest external), area (farthest). Focus and switch your hearing around these zones. Teach yourself to hear sounds only within the same zone. You should train until this switching starts without any difficulty, and memorizing the sequence of events within 5–10 minutes will be absolute.Experience shows that an unprepared person achieves similar results in approximately one and a half to two months of daily training.
Now you can begin to train your vision. It consists of two components. First you need to practice on inanimate objects, then on animate objects. When choosing an object or person, consider it from all possible sides for 1–5 minutes. Pay special attention to small details: rubbing, fat spots, glare, degree of wear, articulation of parts, fine wrinkles, muscle development, skin and teeth color, etc. Try to notice something that the eye did not cling to earlier. It is easiest to approach observation from a position of critic, as if searching for defects or defects in objects.
Remember: all objects are in some space for some time (which means they move, deteriorate), and also interact with each other (leave mutual traces, exchange particles of dirt, dust ...). Traces of these interactions with each workout, you will begin to detect more and more quickly, and the relationship between them to track all more effectively.
The next stage is the training of the actual observation: attention and logic.At this stage, any object that you choose to practice should be considered in the already known coordinate system: space (including lighting, position relative to other objects and interaction with them), time and constituent parts. The main mistake inherent in all novice fans of deduction is putting the investigation before the causes: I want to immediately reveal some “secret”, while subtle observation depends on the ability to notice simple, but not obvious things and make the only correct logical conclusions.
Since the principles are already known, you can go to the examples. Here you have an office desk. By the way it stands, how deeply the floor covering is pressed beneath it, following the tracks on this flooring, changes in the color of the table polishing, barely noticeable abrasions from the pull-out chair, dust accumulations, shakiness of the hinges of the shelves, gouging of the ends, etc. how long the table serves its owner, where he stood up to his present place, in what kind of clothes he is most often employed, how often the cleaning staff and the owner himself look in and tell something about his character (for example, if the table is almost new, and scuffs from pushing there is a lot of stooling and retractable stool).
Or, for example, there is a lamp on the table.It is unlikely that you used to look closely at the bends and fractures of its wires, and now, having examined them carefully, you can tell with fairly high accuracy how often it moved from place to place, and suggest why. In the footsteps of heating next to the light source itself - the "owl" or "skylark" is its owner. For fresh and old dust or its absence - how carefully he keeps order.
And if you have a chance to talk with the owner of the table and the lamp, pay attention to how he sits, stands, walks, speaks, looks, breathes, smiles, frowns, smokes, puts out a cigarette. Who is he - a misanthrope or a lover of life, a pedant or a slob, is he happy in family life, does he play sports, does he look to the future with optimism or does he only dream of remaining alone and alone? Surely after training you will learn a lot more about your vis-à-vis than he wants to show and tell, which is not bad for a beginner Holmes!
