What to ask yourself about if you get to the future: a professor voiced an interesting plan

What to ask yourself if you find yourself in the future

Most people think about the future and imagine what it will be like. It is interesting to see yourself and find out whether you have achieved what you dreamed and planned.

The BBC has published a professor's research on this topic. According to him, people often imagine themselves to be completely different in the future.

This explains why we give in to impulsive desires, such as buying expensive things, rather than doing something that will be useful in the long run. If people stopped treating themselves as strangers in the future, things would be different.

One way to bridge the emotional gap is to imagine yourself more concretely and vividly. Something that evokes emotions will push us to action.

The professor conducted an experiment with a bank. Clients who wanted to make retirement savings were shown their own pictures at an older age, and then they made a decision 16% more willingly than those who were not shown the photos.

Writing letters to yourself will also strengthen your connection with your present self.

It should be noted that showing people a picture of themselves in their old age or forcing them to engage in an imaginary conversation is far from a real meeting with their future self. But thanks to modern technology, such a unique opportunity may arise.

It's possible that there will be a program that will collect data about your place of residence, education, relationships, and hobbies, and it will be able to project your personality in the future.

So imagine that you have such an opportunity and you can ask the following questions:

  • What are you most proud of and why?
  • How have you changed over time, for better or worse?
  • What do you miss most about the past?
  • What actions do you regret?
  • What would you like to do if you could go back?
  • What period of your life would you like to live again the most?
  • What should I pay more attention to now?
  • What should I worry about less?
