目は心のゲート=認知の選択的透過性=

こうして自分が見て、内的世界像を作り、それに基づいて意思決定をして、行動を起こし、その実を刈り取る。そして人は満足したり、フラストレーションを覚えたりする。それはすべてあなたの心が生み出しているのだ。

目はからだのあかりである。だから、あなたの目が澄んでおれば、全身も明るいだろう。-マタイ6:22

Anna Antinori lead author of the study, explains that we’re constantly filtering out what sensory information to focus on. For example, you might well be subconsciously ignoring the noise around you or the feeling of a chair against your back. And this then determines what we perceive. “The ‘gate’ that lets through the information that reaches consciousness may have a different level of flexibility,” she says. “Open people appear to have a more flexible gate and let through more information than the average person.”

This isn’t the only study that connects personality with perception. As the researchers note in The Conversation, an earlier study shows that those who score high in openness are less likely to experience “inattentional blindness.”

Though the research suggests that personality affects the way we filter conscious experience, it’s not clear exactly how this process works. The authors speculate that overlapping neurochemicals in the brain may link perception to personality. “Thus the abundance of the same neurochemical, or lack thereof, may affect both one’s personality and low-level vision,” adds Antinori.
