Apparently, the Dunning-Kruger effect needs updating with another "Mount Stupid".
Back to the O.P., check out my signature.
I heartily disagree
Professionally, I was a scientist and engineer. You quickly get stuck in the mud if you can't change gears.
Yes, I try to consider other people’s opinions and viewpoints...but I also examine the person’s situation, and if they’re constantly in some sort of mess, their viewpoint is marginalized...which I why I ignore my brother more and more. He’s a raging ball of anger, arrogance and self-loathing. I hope he fixes it before it fixes him.
My sincere apologies to all, and Mister Peegoo...
I stand corrected ..
I promise, in the future, to do better ...
I like to think I pause adequately to consider other opinions. Whether I agree or disagree.
Trouble is, What I really want to know is the basis for said opinions.
That is where the crux of the biscuit gets stale and moldy, isnt it?
Things the internet has taught me:
Everyone puts their shopping cart back
No one litters.
Everyone uses their turn signals
No one on the internet is a phone solicitor
No one on the internet beats their wife
And everyone on the internet is an open minded model of empathy.
I do understand and even strive to better understand the other perspective, but in the end it's useless, I KNOW mine is the correct one!
Dude, Can I get your service provider?

My philosophy has always been "live and let live".
I've lived long enough to know that even the simplest among us can have moments of brilliance.
Actually I was thinking the update it needs is to add an arrogance line. I’ve found that to be much more of an issue than confidence.
I gotta say, over the years I keep finding that IME at least half of common sense is totally wrong.
Much of it is advice for kids, probably most of it is rules of thumb for the inexperienced, and the last bit falls under the laws of averages.
IOW we are given common sense by our parents in hopes that we will survive long enough to replace it with experience.
Experience though is huge, and shows how poorly grounded much of common sense really is.
Of course confirmation bias may make experience less informative.
We could be handed experience as kids, but common sense is one size fits all while experience is unique to the individual.
Our individual strengths and aptitudes combined with our path, create our unique experience informed individual sense.
I think when we facepalm in response to anothers' epic lack of common sense, we forget that it was also a lack of experience.
Tell an experienced Chef they better not put their hand on a hot stove?
Why thank you!
But, you know I'm Telemnemonics, not "Everyone"?
"Do you strive to understand the other perspective(s)?"
I find it impossible to accept other perspectives that ignore facts, because the facts don't fit their ideology
I study cognitive biases for work... and now I just hate most people.
I like string cheese.....
I make an effort to listen- at least long enough to figure out if there’s anything worth “understanding”.
sometimes there is and sometimes there ain’t.
I do believe you can go through and have as little as a 5 minute conversation with most of the population and decide whether they warrant belief. You? I've had a little more than a cumulative hour of conversations. I believe you and I learn from you! And that took little work on both our parts...
