Rule 278

Unrecognized Personal Bias is the enemy of understanding.

For example:

Psychiatrist: do you think your anxiety and anger are related to your “hearing problem.”

Deaf Person: No, I think they are because of hearing people.

(not quoted from a real interaction–quoted from hundreds over 25 years.)

These blogs (I have two) began as a series of sayings I use to teach interpreting workshops, and political diatribes on Facebook. They moved from Facebook to this blog site: 1. as a way to remove them from my head (cuts down on the noise in there); and, 2. to give a better home to both my less serious and satire laden posts and my more serious satiate laden posts. I guess it's up to you to decide which is which.
