Did you change your opinion?
When was the last time you changed your mind about something you’ve staunchly vouched for?
I rarely did. Until I read Think Again by Adam Grant. I summarised my learning here.
But in a nutshell, if a point of view dominates your worldview, you’ll explain every situation through that lens. Changing your perspective/lens helps you decipher things like a scientist.
It’s akin to wearing a pair of spectacles with coloured lenses. Try blue, green, and natural- different things start to come together. How? I do a few things
- Read books that don't confirm with my worldview
- See multiple articles/perspectives for the same news. You'll get to know both sides.
- Don't be embarrassed to admit that you changed your POV.
