You’re Looking at It the Wrong Way

You’re already looking at it the wrong way. Your perspective is skewed because you’re bias. You only believe the information that’ll back you up, ignoring any contradictory evidence.

The data never lies. But it’s easy to misinterpret and exaggerate it to back up your story.

Your opinion is only as right as you’re ability to listen to the other side. Taking temporary perspective of your opposition shows you even more deeply what context they’re missing. Maybe they didn’t have the same education as you growing up.

Pursue knowledge. It’s the only way to avoid the trap of short-sided ignorance.
