A friend from high school started an Internet business several years ago and has become one of the wealthiest, most successful entrepreneurs in the nation. Whenever you see her, you talk about her business ventures and fantasize about her material success, imagining her house, her car, her hired help. (“What must it be like to live in such luxury” is the way you put it.)
One day you learn that this same wealthy friend has become active in a community organization that serves the mentally challenged and their parents. You are told that her work with mentally challenged children consumes most of her weekends and a substantial part of her income and that she lives in modest circumstances. You find this
hard to believe, and you suspect that somehow she is profiting from her involvement. Answer: This characteristic of preoperational thought illustrated is Static Reasoning. You fail to realize that your friend is always happy because she has money. Even though she has problems in her life. Those problems do not exist to you.
