Think Like Me




I see others make poor choices, act terribly, and do things I would never do. Strangely enough, I find myself being critical of them. Indeed, actions that violate the law or victimize others are wrong, yet I think everyone should think like me. I sometimes ask why they are doing this, acting this way, saying those things, etc. [Blind Spot]


I see politicians developing the most ineffective, inefficient ways to spend money. I see protesters who are destroying buildings and assaulting police officers who are not the enemy but everyday citizens who have willingly taken on the responsibility of ensuring our safety. So, I ask myself, “What is wrong with all these crazy decisions and choices?”


It’s fascinating how we perceive our perspective as the standard for rationality and reason. I believe that my thoughts, beliefs, and opinions are not only valid but also superior to those of others. [Blind Spot] This inclination towards believing everyone should think like me is not uncommon; it’s a natural consequence of our unique experiences, upbringing, and personal biases. 


It’s as if my mind is wired to seek validation and affirmation of my beliefs, leading me to believe that if everyone thought the way I do, the world would be a better place.


Imagine if everyone shared the same thoughts, opinions, and ideas—society would stagnate, innovation would cease, and progress would halt. 

The clash of differing viewpoints fuels creativity, drives innovation, and propels humanity forward. Moreover, insisting that others think like me undermines the fundamental principles of autonomy and individuality.


How about you? Do you think everyone should think the same as you think?


Watch for the blind spots.
