I wish more people would challenge their assumptions as everyone has a different life story with different experiences which shape how you feel and react. It's helpful to remind ourselves that there are various perspectives to the same situation. A great example is witness to a accident or criminal act - not only one perspective is shared.

A personal example...When I was involved in one of your programs, several of us got into a side conversation with some people and we discovered we all had PhD's! We all came from different walks of life, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc. but we all got the same feeling from most people - they thought we came from wealthy, influential families. Thanks for letting me share.
