How To Apply Negative Capability - Deepstash

How To Apply Negative Capability

  • Embrace your ignorance. Become comfortable saying “I don’t know” — it is a form of courage and humility.
  • Suspend your judgement. Keep on being a neutral observer, collect more information, consider various perspectives. 
  • Sit with your doubts even of they make us feel uncomfortable.
  • Question your assumptions. All of our opinions are based on assumptions. That’s fine, as long as we are aware of them. 
  • Revisit your ideas. It is okay to change your mind! Even when you have formed an opinion, don’t let it cement and become part of a fixed mindset.
