I was wondering how the personality view of an ordinary person is expressed in their thoughts, feelings and actions compared to a stream entrant who has completely given up this view.

Does this mean this > everything to yourself related interpretation < of reality? e.g. The salesperson is unfriendly and you first consider that he doesnt like you instead of considering the much more likely options, that he is just like that every day and there may be completely different reasons for it. ...Just to give a very crude example.

Shouldn't that be a real personal transformation?

On the other hand, there will certainly be many people with a materialistic worldview who see humans as just an accumulation of (impersonal) chemical compounds, but there is no real connection to the teaching of budha.

I think simply in the sense I would not ever want to hang out with the people in a Bar the Arahant no longer wishes to hang out even with lay people, much less people in the world. You are drawn to your peers.😀
