Notes on Blindness

After the writer and theologian John Hull became completely blind in 1983, he kept an audio diary of his experience. This film is a dramatization using those recordings. Enjoy it as a moment of reflection.

The Halo Effect

The Halo Effect is a type of cognitive bias in which our overall impression of a person influences how we feel and think about his or her character. It is the phenomenon whereby we assume that because people are good at doing A, they will be good at doing B, C and D (or the reverse — because they are bad at doing A, they will be bad at doing B, C and D).

A good head and a good heart
are always a formidable combination
