Blind Spots

August 24, 2011

We all have blind spots. They are situation or issues where we are either too close emotionally to fairly evaluate or we’ve become too invested in our current position on the subject to see it objectively. We make some assessment and then write it off as done, refusing to reexamine or reconsider our view on the subject. Most people seem blissfully content to remain in this state because we do not like changing our previously written off positions; mainly because many of us see doing that as an admission of wrong; we take it as a personal loss and our egos cannot accept that. We therefore choose to stubbornly cling to outdated notions, refusing to reevaluate them against new evidences. While this may make us feel strong and confident (not to mention a bit arrogant and intolerant), we are really blinded by our own desire to be right.
