"A black or white thinking style..helpful or not helpful?"....written by Dr Vin @ Springfield Qld

If you have a very "black or white" thinking style that is, things are either right or wrong, true or false, good or bad, and there are no greys, then this may create friction or dramas in your life. Of course, this style of thinking can be very good, particularly when you are in complete control of your environment. However, this may not be the case for you....

I often validate and challenge people on the topic of "True or False" by raising the following argument.

What was true in the past may not be true anymore. What is true today may not be true tomorrow. Being aware of this will at least allow us to open our minds to more possibilities and importantly, more opportunities.

Food for thought...
