Clever use of “flaws”

  There is a theory in performance science called “flaw theory”, which means that if an actor has flaws in appearance or language that cannot be overcome, then simply exaggerate the flaws and turn them into a style and an art. This is like when a piece of porcelain has irreparable scratches, simply let the porcelain be covered with scratches, making it into ice cracks formed by normal opening, and it becomes beautiful instead. Today, ice-cracked porcelain has become a stylistic category that is loved by people.
  ”Defect”, like “shortcoming”, “defect” and “error”, seems to be a very disgraceful word. In daily life and work, people are advised to try their best to avoid defects, try their best to overcome defects, and try their best to prevent mistakes. Adverbs and warnings can be found everywhere smell. However, if the “flaw” can be used skillfully according to the specific situation, positive and positive effects can often be received. For example –
  if you make a mistake, you will make a mistake. Some mistakes can not only be corrected, but also diverted. Through human efforts, they can change the wrong path and develop in a beneficial direction. According to legend, Luban was ordered by the monarch to build the Golden Luan Palace. He led a group of apprentices to complete the beams and columns, but found that one of the columns was shortened by three inches when building it. If you do it again, time is running out. Depressed, Lu Ban went home to discuss the matter with his wife, who had a plan and said that all the pillars could be cut short by three inches, and then they would be padded with suitable stone plinths. Since then, erecting pillars on top of the stone pier has become a major architectural style. Coincidentally. Picasso created an etching of a heroic bullfighter with a spear in his right hand. But what he didn’t expect was that there was a mistake in the printing of the portrait, and the position was changed from left to right. He was taken aback when he saw a bullfighter with a spear in his left hand. But soon, he was suddenly inspired and changed the name of the painting to “Left-Handed”, which later became a classic.
  Lucky hit. Originally adopted an inappropriate approach, but got a satisfactory result by luck. Such cases are not uncommon in ancient and modern China and foreign countries. Once, when the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Khufu held a grand state banquet, a small chef accidentally knocked over a pot of mutton fat that had been refined, and he was so frightened that he picked up the mutton fat with his hands and threw it outside. After throwing away, he hurriedly washed his hands, but unexpectedly there were slippery and sticky things on his hands, so he washed his hands very clean. Gradually, washing hands with suet oil was popularized throughout the country, and after research and manufacture, soap that changed the lifestyle of countless people came out. In the same way, there was a paper worker in Germany who accidentally made a wrong formula when producing writing paper, which made a large amount of writing paper scrapped. Not only was he deducted wages, but he was also fired. Afterwards, one of his friends reminded him, can he find something beneficial from this mistake? Soon, he thought that although this batch of waste paper could no longer be used for writing, it had good water absorption performance and could absorb moisture from utensils. Therefore, he cut the batch of paper into small pieces and put it on the market under the name “absorbent paper”, which turned out to be very popular. It can be seen that when we find some accidental mistakes, we don’t have to blame ourselves or even give up on ourselves. Instead, we should study and make use of these mistakes to make them play a positive, in line with our own wishes and have a positive special effect, and some miracles can just resulting from this.
  Make good use of shortcomings. The so-called shortcomings are not actually rotten iron plates or rotten wood. Their properties often change with time and place. On one occasion it is a disadvantage, but on another occasion it may be an advantage, because it is determined by subjective factors and objective conditions. After a foreign expert conducted personality surveys and intelligence tests on her employees, she found that some people were fault-finding, so she arranged for these people to be supervisors and foremen, and they did a great job. The flaws that were originally fault-finding have become the strengths of being loyal to their duties. General Yang Shizhai of the Qing Dynasty faced the dilemma of no one available for a while, and resolutely put the deaf at the left and right, let the dumb be in charge of delivering secret messages, and ordered the lame to sit on the fort and fire cannons, which not only alleviated the “employment shortage”, but also Let everyone have their own place. Such examples are too numerous to enumerate, such as two broken barrels with cracks, which seem useless, but someone uses them for watering, carrying them to sprinkle water while walking, which saves time and effort; a pile of discarded empty cans, It is usually useless, but some people make a lot of money by making it into various works of art and decorations. It is often said that employing people should use their strengths and avoid their weaknesses, but if they are used properly and well, using their weaknesses is the same as using their strengths, which has the same effect.
  The short is where the long leans, and the long is where the short rests. In real life, many seemingly useless or even “harmful” things, as long as they are used skillfully, can turn short into long, and turn waste into treasure.
  Finally, it needs to be pointed out that not all “flaws” can be used skillfully, those fatal flaws and essential mistakes must be prevented, made up for and corrected.
