    I wonder if heavy-agglutination languages like Hungarian and Latin produce a group of people with less gestalt psychology. I realized that one reason I cannot relate to many people may be due to me not being gestalt psychological. Love your videos!!

    The true Gestalt design is where all of the parts contribute to the whole of the design in such a way that each part gains strength from each and every other part. This is why my machines run for 30 years. Whereas, the other products in my field last about 7 before they fall apart and start needed lots of work to keep them going.

    完形心理學,又稱作格式塔(Gestalt)心理學,於二十世紀初由德國心理學家提出 — 用以說明人類大腦如何解釋肉眼所觀察到的事物,並轉化為我們所認知的物件。它可說是現代認知心理學的基礎,其貫徹的概念就是「整體大於個體的總合 “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” — Kurt Koffka」–7個原則(如下)

    A. 相似性 (Similarity) — 我們的大腦會把相似的事物看成一體

    B. 接近性 (Proximity) — 我們的大腦會把把靠近的事物看成一體

    C.連續性 (Continuity)-我們的大腦會把事物看成連續的形體

    D.封閉性 (Closure) — 我們的大腦在觀察事物的時候,會將許多個獨立的元素視認為一個完整封閉的圖形。

    E.圖地原理 (Figure-Ground) — 我們的大腦會把圖案視認為圖(前景)與地(後景)的結合

    F. 共同命運(Common Fate) — 我們的大腦會把動態相近的事物看成一體

    G. 對稱性(Symmetry) — 我們的大腦會把對稱的物體,視為一個整體。

    a well known example of design according to the 5 gestalt principles I have ever known was the book Mein Kampf. If would really be liberated on D Day, Gestalt psychology would be outlawed

    Some people over complicate what Gestalt is. It actually is over explained. Way less words would make it seem like a very easy and natural thing to practice on ones own. One may be doing Gestalt and not even know they are. Finishing unfinished business as if it was actually in the now. Our brain will accept the final outcome if we feeel it happen on an emotional level

    I would disagree with the statement the best designs unintentionally make the world feel a little less chaotic. Design is by definition inherently intentional. That is it is it has an intended purpose, intended message and often intended audience. This is One of the differentiating factors between design and art. Whereas design can definitely be art, not all art would qualify as design since there is not always an intended message, audience or purpose but just is…
