Integrated complexity feels like disloyalty

Integrated complexity feels like disloyalty

Integrated complexity is the ability to hold multiple perspectives at once, and it’s a wonderful trait for people to have. Some have it more naturally than others, but we can all work to do more.

If you think there should be, for example, zero immigration to the United States, you can call anyone who has even mildly pro-immigrant views a traitor. On the other hand if you think there should be open borders to the United States, you can call anyone who calls for any immigration restrictions a racist.

Change your mind but hold your values

While changing your mind can be a good thingyour values should remain strong. By taking the time to understand both sides of an issue, you’ll be better equipped to defend your position and have stronger faith in why you believe what you believe. We saw this a few months ago with the gentleman that was firmly against Critical Race Theory, but he didn’t know why. I suspect part of it was a fear of feeling disloyal if he took the time to understand why someone might be in favor of it, so he buried his head in the sand instead.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Understanding the opposing viewpoint doesn’t mean being disloyal to what you believe, and will very likely help strengthen your own perspective.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
