The Power of Open-Minded Conversations: Moving Beyond ‘Right’ and ‘Wrong’

by | 26 Apr 2023

We don’t argue about things we know to be true.


When someone, other than my vet, tells me that my female cat is a male – I shrug my shoulders – why bother to engage?


When someone wants to convince me that their political perspective is right, I may get triggered and start arguing.


We only ever argue about things where there are different opinions. This should give us a clue that on subjects with many perspectives, ‘true’ / ‘false’ positions are pointless.


We decide the quality of our interactions:

  • Arguments based on black-and-white opposing positions, or
  • Conversations that explore many different shades and colours


Which conversation do you want to engage in?
