Validating


We all have an opinion on most subjects. 

That’s OK, we are all entitled to our views. 

How often, though, have we formed opinions without validating them, perhaps without looking at any evidence to support our views?

OK, so we may only be validating them via the web or a book or another person’s opinion. To certain extent we are then only validating them with another person’s perspective. But we are at least looking at some stats perhaps or anecdotal evidence or a survey/study etc. 

However, at least attempting to verify something we hold as a view has to better than not doing that. 

After all, we may find out while doing our research that there are other perspectives to something we believed was black and white, cut and dried, and simply a ‘fact’.

Opening up our mind to information allows us to be better informed with our views.
