“THE WIZARD OF OZ” MY CRAZY INTERPRETATION- OR NOT-

POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”

This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.

IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION 

AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO

Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…

These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..

-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol

BUT!

PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL  ——

(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?

BUT!

RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….

MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL

FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-

THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”

— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN  RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL

“Yield at Green” This is what started it all!!!

It all came down to a road trip where I came to a main intersection which had traffic lights appropriate for a main road intersection including the turning lane having a light as well. Should be simple……. Than I notice a sign up on the traffic light saying “Yield at Green”. And this is not for the turning lane, this is for regular traffic passing through the intersection.

In case its not clear let me remind you that this is an intersection where lets say road(1) goes east/west intersects road(2) goes north/south with a 55mph speed limit. When east/west traffic has a green light the north/south traffic is red….. Not only is this common but has become common sense that when approaching an intersection that has a red/yellow/green traffic light that alternating traffic is guided by the same. It would make things very eventful if everyone had a green light… wouldn’t it?

Now that we covered basic traffic safety logic, I will go back to the sign “yield at green”

Where to begin?

Start with obvious- Green means go, Yellow means yield, and Red means stop unless they changed that without notifying anyone! If they now want you to “yield at green” what are my instructions for the yellow light?

Yield at green, initiate stop at yellow, and full stop at red? Why bother with the yellow light at all than? Save electricity and some lightbulbs and change the rules to slow down at green and stop when red. No wonder there are so many accidents… Half these people can’t drive to begin with and now your throwing this at them. Leaves these people alone and stop confusing them! They have a hard enough time putting their shoes on in the morning, the last thing they need is a new conflicting traffic instruction. Than again, I doubt these motor morons would even notice the sign so basically its there to torment observant people for a good laugh. Remember these are the same motorists that drive all the way to the end of an on ramp come to a complete stop and wonder why they aren’t able to merge onto the highway of cars traveling over 50mph from their dead stop position…….

I had to rationalize this for myself wether right or wrong. Just for peace of mind and to make my reason probably much more logical than why it was put in place. Here goes:

Given the massive increase of traffic cameras at intersections in my area issuing tickets, people have become unpredictable at intersections. Yellow used to mean speed up or even coast through (after all , opposing traffic has a delay after your light turns red before they get a green). Now the yellow light induces panic and confusion to the driver…. They had the habit of speeding up but now that camera fear causes a last minute slamming on the break…. Probably causing more accidents than someone running a red light!.

MY RATIONAL UNDERSTANDING is this state that didn’t have traffic cameras yet and was being proactive by training drivers to be ready and prepared to stop at the yellow, not the red, so when cameras do go up they have already been conditioned…..THAT’S HOW I HAVE RATIONALIZED IT LOL
