Less certainty, more inquiry

Listening to the Attribution podcast today, there was conversation around how most of us like simple narratives. To boil things down to those attractively simple stories, we reduce complex ambiguities into tidy absolutes.

Humans are compressed into stereotypes.

Journeys are contracted into linear paths.

Possibilities are shrank to one version that loosely fits.

Evolution has primed us to find the quick answer, and it pays to challenge this default behaviour.

Be comfortable with less certainty. Embrace curiosity and the rich pictures it can put before you.
