Gist reasoning experiment – What’s going on here in this scene?

When I was first tested on my “gist reasoning”, I did extremely poorly.

I didn’t learn till later, that I was supposed to answer a certain way. This next exercise is similar to the test I failed badly, the first time I took it.

Look at this picture – what’s happening? Choose below:

What's happening here?
What’s happening here?
  1. They are having tea
  2. They are in a stage play
  3. Older woman is ignoring the girl in the pink shirt
  4. Three people are sitting, one person is standing
  5. There are a lot of blue items – shirts, jeans, book, sofa, seat cushion
  6. The flowers on the table in the background almost match the youngest woman’s shirt
  7. The girl with the neck collar is getting all the attention
  8. The family is playing out an unhealthy dynamic that it always does, and it’s bothering a number of people here

Each choice is technically correct.

Which one summarizes what’s going on, at a high level?

Or do you have another perspective?

Write it down, if you have trouble figuring out “big picture” ideas on a regular basis, and check in with someone you know who does a better job of it, than you.

See what they have to say about your interpretation.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
