I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
You're going to need to be more specific, then.I think you point out a distinction which exists but I am talking specifically about dealing with issues of immersion not likes or dislikes. One can become more resilient to distraction which is essentially what is pulling someone out of that state. There are ways to do that, just like there's ways to improve one's ability to stay focused.
For example, a person can practice mindfulness meditation which allows them to be resilient to distraction. But, and I say this from personal experience, I have not found it to be helpful when it comes to immersion in a fictional setting.
Again, if the distraction is extrinsic (someone at the table is chewing loudly), then that's fine. Rise above. When the "distraction" is intrinsic, and thereby causing you to lose immersion, then I am unfamiliar with a technique that works.
But maybe I'm wrong! You seem to have something specific in mind that you've alluded to. Please share what techniques work for you for intrinsic issues that destroy immersion- I'd love to hear it.
