Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: April 20, 2019

If empathy cannot be sold or taught as something altruistic, then try selfish empathy. This was the conclusion of this article by Mindshift.

The read was a good one because it created cognitive dissonance. It might also be a more prudent approach given the changing culture.

This better approach is not always obvious. Another Mindshift article published at around the same time called the old approaches “cognitive set”. The dissonance might then be upsets.

One only really learns after being challenged or upset. If we hear or experience something we already know, that is called reinforcement. That is why I appreciate reading articles like the ones published by the aptly named Mindshift.
