The egocentric belief that earthquake patterns shift away from you depending on where you are in the world.
"Hey Rhett, I think when we moved to California the earthquakes shifted back to North Carolina where we were!" "No Link, thats just egoseismic thinking."
WHEN YOU MOVE SOMEWHERE WHERE EARTHQUAKES ARE FREQUENT AND THERE HAVE NOT BEEN ANY QUAKES SINCE YOU MOVED AND YOU THINK IT'S BECAUSE YOU MOVED THERE.
Rhett: We haven't been in an earthquake since we moved to California!
Link: Maybe it's because we moved here, the quakes flee from us!!
Rhett: Link, that's Ego Seismic Thinking.
The belief that you actually have an effect on where earthquakes occur in the world.
Link: "Maybe it's us. Maybe us coming out here redirected the epicenter of U.S. earthquakes to where we were from."
Rhett: "That's called egocentric thinking, Link. That you think that we had something to do with the earthquakes in the world."
Link: "I would call it egoseismic thinking."
A way of thinking where a person believes seismic activity in a certain area is based on their physical location.
"We moved from North Carolina to California and there hasn't been an earthquake in California ever since, but there has been one in North Carolina"
"Maybe us coming out here has redirected the epicenter of US earthquakes to where we were from"
"That's egoseismic thinking"
The practice of thinking one's self is responsible for the frequency and location of seismic activity i.e and earthquake.
Link: "When I moved to California, there haven't been any earthquakes. I think they stopped because of me."
Rhett: "That's some egoseismic thinking, Link."
The belief that wherever you go, earthquakes flee from your presence.
I moved to California a year ago, and there haven't been any earthquakes at all. It must be me.
That's really Egocentric thinking.
No, that's Egoseismic thinking.
Thinking that when you moved somewhere, and there is an absence of earthquakes there, it is because of you.
Link: 'Wherever I go, earthquakes flee!'
Rhett: That's egocentric thinking.
Link: No, that's egoseismic thinking.
