What You See Often Isn’t Reality

Instantly, at face value, it is hard to differentiate between recklessness and boldness, ambitions and greed, a genius and an idiot.

Circumstances, luck and other external factors often end up making something look like what it isn't.

We are not really as great as we think we are, and other people aren’t really as bad as we think.

In the book Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman states that we instantly recognize other people’s stupidity, slips and mistakes, but not our own.

It should not be a surprise that most people do not agree with each other.

There is a blindspot hidden in this behaviour we all have, to see others mistakes instantly but not our own.
