Tell me please whiche sentence is correct.

Our mind liking to reduce most of what we have been through to headings than to full stories is not a very good thing.

Our mind's liking to reduce most of what we have been through to headings than to full stories is not a very good thing.

I feel both might be correct, if I am right, then what is the difference between mind liking and mind's liking?

  • reduce ... to headings ... (rather) than to full stories.... needs rather when liking is the verb. Also, you cannot reduce something to a full story.

Neither sentence makes sense in English.

The fact that our minds reduce our experiences to headings instead of full stories is a bad thing.  

This is a better way to write this sentence because our minds don't have feelings and thus they wouldn't "like" something.

  • +1 for pointing out that the sentence doesn't make very clear sense. But we cannot reduce something to a full story.

  • Anyway, if not to take into account that te sentence is incorrect, which option would be correct my mind's liking or my mind liking? Jun 21, 2018 at 21:46
  • @DmytroO'Hope As Amanda Maring says, neither expression makes sense. The whole sentence needs rethinking. Jun 21, 2018 at 22:00
