    you enter into seeing what others see

    This seems to be a wrong question without an answer, and 3 seem to be the closest. Does "enter into seeing" make sense?

    ===========================================
    35. Which belongs in the blank?

    One of the most important skills you can develop in human relations is the ability to see things from others’ points of view. It’s one of the keys to satisfying customers, maintaining a marriage, and raising children. All human interactions are improved by the ability to put yourself in another person’s shoes. How? Look beyond yourself, your own interests, and your own world. When you work to examine a problem in the light of another’s history and discover the interests and concerns of others, ____________________________. And that is a powerful thing.

    ① you stop seeing what others see
    ② you start seeing that others see you
    you enter into seeing what others see
    ④ you stop to see what others see
    ⑤ you begin to eat what others see

    Re: you enter into seeing what others see

    Are you sure #5 is "you begin to "eat" what others see"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, it's possible. 'Seeing' is a gerund. "Seeing what others see" is something that you could plausibly enter into, with some metaphorical licence. By doing all those things, you gain entry into that state of seeing that other people are in.
    5. would be more natural if it said 'see' rather then 'eat'.
