Hi Ayay, I couldn’t agree more on the humility part! This is the biggest problem I see when I observe many people in a discussion. I often realize that the point of the discussion is not to get as close as possible to “the truth” — but to prove one’s point to the other person. This is a clear example of the “Expert’s Mind” stopping us from investigating and finding out.

In my opinion, this is the core of authentic learning — to be more curious than defensive about our opinions. Not to carve those opinions in stone, as you put it, because we might always discover a new angle from which the whole subject looks completely different.

Thank you for connecting with me here and all the best to you!
