Do you really want my opinion?

01/31/2012

Having access to different schools of thought can be helpful as you shape your persecutive on different topics.

And while it’s easy to ask someone what they think, it’s not easy to be in a genuinely receptive posture for their opinion. We often look for opinions that support our assumptions, which is what makes true and unbiased research so valuable.

You probably know a lot of really smart people, but you do their experience (and your relationship with them) a disservice if you lean on them to support your assumptions, rather than endeavoring to consider their input with an unbiased mind.
