Content Creators Are Not Mind Readers

Scott CunninghamMay 27, 2019, 7:17:42 AM

Too often does someone comment on an educational video in a way that they are upset by the information simply because they already knew it even when countless others do not which is called a cognitive bias. That’s where you assume because you know something, so should everyone else.

The other phenomenon I see pretty often is people saying “why did you make a post about this and not that?” as if to say that the creator’s priorities aren’t properly aligned with that one single audience member. I’d like to be clear and say that we aren’t mind readers, we only have so much time and focus and usually, we create around what interests us.

People don’t create based on what you demand typically aside from when they directly ask their audience as it is good to do so. However, being bossed around by one viewer based on their interests and priorities is when you should stop and instead encourage that person to create themselves. There are a lot of people who are trying really hard to lead the direction content creators are headed, but those people should really be producing content themselves. If you want to see a change in the world, be the change, especially before you ask others to change.
