Being aware of our perception gap


Being aware of our perception gap

We live in a world where our perceptions matter most.

When someone talks about their problems, we relate them to what we have experienced and immediately begin judging.

Have you wondered why we have difficulty connecting with someone else’s troubles? 

According to the author of “EQ Applied,” Justin Bariso and the author of “Give and Take,” Adam Grant, we have a habit of falsely assuming that we know what problems others have. 

Instead of asking and confirming, we make quick judgments and assumptions about what others are going through. 

Just as our prescription glasses don’t work for everyone, our perceptions don’t always follow the right path. 

Try this

  • The next time someone talks about their problem, ask for details instead of making assumptions.
  • Suspend your judgment and emotional entanglement because you cannot possibly know what the other person is going through. 
  • Instead of providing solutions, ask for the permission on how you can help

Close your perception gap and become aware of what the other person is going through and how you can support them. Becoming aware of our perception gap can be the difference we need to live a satisfying and happy life.
