Extrapolating from one.

If you like learning from everyday occurrences or people you meet, and I do, then new perspectives come at you very regularly. There is a danger in assuming what you’ve just learned is representative though. Every person is unique, every occurrence has its own context and the sample size from which you’ve just drawn a conclusion, is essentially one.

There are patterns and tendencies from which we can draw frameworks and make generalisations, but as general rule it’s best to think everyone is different, just like everyone else. Polarising ourselves and others to fit a particular narrative is a disservice.
