Don't Fall To Be A Fragilista

There is a quote from Anfragile :

The fragilista ... He is often involved in a strange ritual, something commonly called "a meeting." ... he defaults to thinking that what he doesn't see is not there, or what he does not understand does not exist. At the core, he tends to mistake the unknown for the nonexistent.

Mind Mechanism

Aaron Swarz's analog on how our mind perform thinking :

your brain puts up a sort of mental force field around a task. Ever play with two magnets? If you orient the magnets properly and try to push them towards each other, they'll repel fiercely. As you move them around, you can sort of feel out the edges of the magnetic field. And as you try to bring the magnets together, the field will push you back or off in another direction.

Accepting an opposite opinion can be hard for anyone because of our build-in attribute of gene. When we hear an opinion, we may quickly response: "Oh, that is your opinion". That should not be the right way for immediate response. Instead, we shall focus on whether their opinions are better or worse so that we can examine our own ideas and thinking problems from different angles. That is how we learn and correct our thoughts.
