Can make you think that someone is always wanting to know what you are doing.
If they ask 'how are you this morning?', you think they are trying to get into your personal business.
Instead of acknowledging them in a friendly and polite manner, you give them a look like, 'how dare you acknowledge me'.
The pattern teaches the young to grow up thinking it is ok to 'not' acknowledge someone. When they ask 'how are you?' just stare at them. They don't mean no harm, they are just repeating the pattern.
This is what was put out in their household, no one ever said it was wrong. So in their mind it is ok to do this.
Until, one day, another generation comes up with a different pattern, and starts acknowledging others, the old pattern looks at him/her like they are odd.
Because it is not normal for them to be friendly.
It is never too late to change, or create / get on board with a new pattern!
