Tendency Zine #1: Print Screen
Tendency is a publication focused on human behavior in modern society, initiated by Jakarta, Indonesia's Scouting Unit.
The idea behind this zine is forged from a curiosity that has been eternally present among humans—the impulse to understand others. As human beings, we strive to be better by learning about others, by taking positive influences and shaping them into our own character. But to understand someone completely, we would need to spend most of our time with them—watching and understanding how they live their lives. Perhaps even then, we still would be unable to understand them in toto.
Our minds wonder about the minds of others—how they think and how they arrive at particular decisions. What makes them them?
And when it comes to human interactions, people may not always be able to show the real version/s of themselves. But Scouting Unit proposes that when individuals are by themselves—without others looking on—we become who we really are. When we are alone with things personal to us—perhaps our smartphones or personal computer—we reveal ourselves as we really are.
