Our brains are wired to minimize uncertainty, therefore we create assumptions about how the world works.
That’s why we all have biases!
Before trying to educate others on how biased they are, understand this: We all are! We can’t not be biased, because we live from our assumptions.
We first have to accept the fact that all of us live from assumptions, but it’s challenging to open our minds–to be “wrong.”
We look for evidence to confirm what we believe already.
We ridicule politicians who change their mind, even when there’s new information and evidence!
The possibilities for our lives only exist in the unknown, not in the known. We have to be willing to see differently if we want transformational change.
