Information, Perception, Values

Usually in an argument, I can see the other person's point of view.  It comes down to three basic things: different information, different perception and different values.  Once you can see where people come from you can consider if the other person has better information and compare their values and perceptions to yours.  I am willing to listen.

-- Edward Charles Francis Publius de Bono (1933 - 2021), British physician, author, inventor, and consultant, most famous as the originator of the term lateral thinking (structured creativity) and a leading proponent of the deliberate teaching of thinking in schools, quoted in "Edward de Bono: 'Iraq? They just need to think it through'" by Angela Balakrishnan in The Guardian (27 April 2007)
