People who have "perfect-pitch", versus people who are "tone-deaf". 2. People who have "normal sight" versus --- people whose "abnormal sight" can be corrected with eye-glasses --- versus people with various degrees and kinds of serious sight abnormality which are referred to as "blindness"; in one or both eyes. 3. People who are "color-blind" as regards: red and green or blue and yellow --- versus normal color vision peoples. 4. People who are deaf to various ranges of sound- frequencies in one or both ears --- versus acute hearing people. 5. People who are particularly adept in seeing/perceiving geometrical figures in two-dimensions and/or in three-dimensions --- like when looking at an objective-reality; in memories soon after, or long after looking at an objective-reality; in a vision "dreamed-up" as regards to a potential "objective-reality" (perhaps realized later as an actual objective-reality) or in a fantasy, video production, or other artistic or engineering rendition --- with or without color and half- tones playing important roles. 6. Musicians who are adept at: hearing, remembering, memorizing, performing, conducting, pre-hearing, composing, extemporizing, and/or refining melodies, compositions, orchestrations, choruses, etc. 7. Mathematicians, physicists and engineers whoa re adept at perceiving/discovering and representing patters of quantitative relationships in: natural, controlled, contrived, regulated, orderly, chaotic, personal, objective and/or reflexive processes. 8. Authentic people of integrity who are adept at perceiving, discovering and clarifying patterns of reflexive relationships among differing and/or cooperative people who are involved in dealing with conflicting: perceptions, understandings, articulations, relationships, environments, people, communities, ideals, values, principles, myths, stories, reports, commandments, prescriptions, proscriptions, scriptures, taboos, etc. 9. People who can perceive and understand complex patterns, relationships and processes, and then in simple ways help others to respond to such complexity in cooperative and helpful ways --- versus people who refuse to acknowledge or deal prudently with complex situations --- even when they are pointed out helpfully. 10. Political leaders who are adept at helping diverse people work out win/win ways of cooperatively integrating the complementary strengths which diverse people have to offer --- versus other political leaders who accentuate conflicts, disagreements, contentiousness and domination by people who are preoccupied with issues of control. 11. People who see everything in terms of dichotomous either/or, yes/no, right/wrong, good/evil alternatives --- versus people who are comfortable with whole spectrums of alternatives, possibilities and challenges. People who operate within various MODES may be relatively unaware of the ways in which their own MODES of sensations, perceptions and experiences make it difficult for them to understand each other and to cooperate with each other. When people who are truly different in very significant ways --- assume that such differences do not exist --- they may find it impossible to understand each other and why "other people" behave in such "strange" ways. Under such circumstances people have entertained hypotheses such as thinking that the "different people" are: 1. Stupid 2. Evil 3. Crazy 4. Tools 5. Etc. Entertaining such hypotheses is rarely helpful to anybody. It may be helpful to seek to discern how people living in terms of contrasting MODES of sensations, perceptions and experiences --- may have less in common than they think they have in common.
