to see or to be seen… that is the question

In the animal world, you can find many that try to make themselves seen as little as possible, masters of camouflage. On the opposite end of the spectrum are those brightly colored species that are all about display.

Whether a tawny frogmouth or a rainbow lorikeet or some other point on the spectrum, there is something about how these animals have evolved that makes sense for their survival.

Humans, of course, have a very similar spectrum. From those of us who prefer to observe to those who love being seen to all those somewhere in the middle. Something about how you choose to appear to the world has come about because it makes sense for you.

So where do you land on the spectrum of observing / being seen? And does it help you live the life you want?
