Love this article in Scientific American by psychology doctoral candidate who finds of interest in the Sherlock Holmes stories. Maria has written number of articles, I like this one on how our interpretation of a situation changes it. http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2011/10/04/lessons-from-sherlock-holmes-trust-in-the-facts-not-your-version-of-them/
"Often, our mind conflates the world and our own interpretation of it without much thought. We simply assume that the way we see is the way it is."
