    In the YIN- YANG symbol ... which color is the YIN .....?

    actually the word YIN is both female and masculine in Chinese

    pronounced "EEN"

    there are 3 WRITING CHARACTERS for the word YIN

    # 1 SILVER / MONEY ,

    # 2 sound or tone

    #3 Protection/shelter/shade infers dark

    according to youthkiawaaz.com

    the CHINESE symbol YIN -YANG where

    the YIN forms the BLACK portion with a WHITE dot

    and YANG forms the WHITE portion with a BLACK dot

    it originated in Chinese philosophy of TAOISM

    it describes that the opposite or contrary forces

    tend to BALANCE each other in the NATURAL world

    what i find interesting is in psychology

    the propensity of Human beings to

    associate BLACK with BAD

    the COWBOY with the BLACK hat

    or person who's clothes were black

    or SKIN color

    was portrayed as the OUTLAW or VILLAIN EVIL distrustful

    perhaps humans FEAR of the NIGHT

    interesting is HOW by what means did one determine

    one is being "JUDGED" by others

    ..the word JUDGED is defined as to form a OPINION or conclusion ..

    no reference in the definition of JUDGED to indicate

    if that opinion is positive negative or neutral or has

    element of BOTH positive and negative just like YIN-YANG

    People also have the propensity to ASSOCIATE the word JUDGED

    to be NEGATIVE that its about BAD BEHAVIOR .

    . BOB can also determine make a judgement

    TED did an appropriate behavior a positive action

    i can present 3 POSSIBILITIES

    # 1 the questioner has SPECIAL mind reading talents

    # 2 people are engaging in verbal communication

    # 3 the questioner is INTERPRETING others facial or body expression

    so when this question is asked .

    .. Some people might SMILE

    others FROWN

    and others show no discernible expression ..

    . many people are CONDITIONED to think in DICHOTOMIES

    consider if you blended WHITE with BLACK one gets GRAY

    the HOMOGENIZING EFFECT

    Yin is black and white. Mostly black, but has a small white dot.
