Key Points




    • We often are not aware that we automatically make assumptions.

    • Assumptions occur, and how they arise from the environment based on fear, lack of information, differences.

    • We are usually more comfortable recalling times when we were on the receiving end of someone else’s erroneous assumptions then when we make and act upon assumptions about others.
