When an ostrich is afraid, it will bury its head in the ground, assuming that because it cannot see, it cannot be seen. Interesting way to avoid the problem. Some of us do too, we are like ostrich. We run away, change the topic or avoid certain people. The ‘ostrich mentality’ is when a person refuses to confront or deal the issues that are facing him, whatever they may be.
The saying comes from the belief that ostriches bury their heads in the sand, which was first recorded by Roman writer Pliny the Elder
I also think that we humans are like ostrich. No matter how high or how low our social status is no matter how well educated and how out- going we are, there are some parts of our life that we do not want to reveal to others. Ostriches bury their heads into the ground when they are afraid.
According to legends, ostriches have a tendency to bury their heads in the sand as a way to avoid danger, but there is no scientific evidence to show that this is true. Some believe that the rumor that ostriches bury their heads in the sand comes from the fact that ostriches ingest sand and pebbles, which help them, swallow their food; people may have noticed them picking up pebbles in their mouths and believed that the ostriches were burying their heads instead.
Another possible source of the rumor that ostriches bury their heads in the sand could be the scientific fact that, when threatened, the ostrich will fall forward in the sand and lay its head to the ground, so that its body will resemble a bush to passing predators. This action is especially common when the ostrich is attempting to protect its eggs. Because the head and neck are the same color as the sand, to an observer, it may look as though the ostriches bury their heads in the sand.
Ostriches are not as stupid as people seem to think.
