Everyone is made up of variables that have an impact on the way they view the world
These variables are sometimes called “filters” the implication being that we pass external stimuli, written, oral and visual, through these filters to make sense of them
It is impossible for people to be unaffected by their own unique filters when making judgments, drawing conclusions and making decisions.
