Reflect definition

Reflect definition


According to Merriam-Webster
there are two possible definitions of the verb reflect

1. Transitive (related to an object)

A mirror reflecting light, changes its direction
Clouds reflected in the water, give back the likeness
Attitude reflecting little judgement, casts result
A blog that reflects vision, makes it manifest
Pulse reflecting the condition of the heart, makes it apparent
To bend or fold back

2. Intransitive (not related to an object)

To throw back light or sound
To think quietly and calmly

Reflect has thus two levels of understanding depending of an object


What is my point?

If we replace 'object' by customer, reader, visitor...
there is a lot more to reflect on in a very concise way

Me neither...

we mostly know intransitive...
that is limiting a lot
Out of reality
Far from truth

Many dwell in this intransitive
Without object

Thank you for sharing Jeff

That's very deep and I had to re read a few times in a good way, it makes a lots of sense and a great metaphor. Thanks Phil
