    When you study something, particularly an object, you need to look at it in all its aspects, examine it from every angle, which means you need to be able to observe it in its entirety, at a distance and close up. If you become absorbed by the thing, if it becomes a part of you, or you of it, then you cannot view it objectively.

    You have to keep from being "swallowed up" by whatever it is you want to study.

    @Anne - gave you a 'thumbs up' my dear. You're one smart cookie!

    I'd add that you can NOT become emotionally involved in solving a problem. The moment you do become emotionally attached, you lose perspective.

  • Smart freaking 14-year-old you are Anne. I'm not being sarcastic, either, because you're completely right.
