The Problem with Making Assumptions OMTimesBy Marcia Sirota MD
We all make assumptions. We do it all the time. These assumptions can be about pretty much anyone or anything.
It’s so easy to think that we know what’s going on in someone else’s head. It’s no problem for us to imagine that we understand why a person has taken a particular course of action. We don’t really know; we make a guess based on our imagination, past experiences or wishful thinking.
It’s also no big deal for us to decide, arbitrarily, why an event has taken place. We don’t base this decision on observable evidence or factual knowledge; we just make the decision and believe it, as if it were fact.
