Why Reflect?

The unexamined life…

corresponding truths
Corresponding Truths
  • Blind Spot direct result of useful feature

(blind spot as misused or overused strength)

  • Blind Spot fills in based on previous experience

(blind spot as outlived habit)

Thank goodness for the other eye!

group polarization effect
Group Polarization Effect

Group discussion/interaction tends to drive groups toward a greater extreme in whatever direction they were already headed.

(For example, conservative groups become more conservative, and liberal groups more liberal).

Why?

  • 1) Groups marinate in their own logical arguments.
  • 2) We seek distinctiveness in the direction of group values.
groupthink clinging to a mistaken v iew
Groupthink: Clinging to a Mistaken View
  • Concentrating on similarity, minimizing difference…
  • Happens when groups:
    • are fairly cohesive from the start
    • have a strong, directive leader
    • are isolated from others outside their dominant perspective
    • have a high self-esteem as a group

Serious delusion may result!

Devil’s advocates essential!

  • Chance to look at an event, program, etc. holistically and piece by piece
