When people come across an idea, they judge 2 things:
1. The 𝘢𝘶𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘺 of the idea originator
2. The 𝘷𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘺 of the idea itself
#1 is far more dominant than #2 for most people
This leads to drastically slower learning
And even wrong learning (Authority bias)
A simple modified policy to cultivate wisdom:
Learn from everyone.
In every interaction, ask yourself “what can I learn from this person?”
Do this without regard to their external success & accomplishments.
View others as exactly equal to you: not inferior, not superior.
Wisdom intake algorithm:
• Be open to new ideas as you come across them
• Evaluate without judgment
• Take what resonates
• Discard what doesn’t
Wisdom is everywhere.
I consciously started doing this about 3 years ago. Night & day difference in rate of personal growth. YMMV
