  • I think it's only human especially when key information isn't being shared. Yes, sometimes I do. Trying to break that bad habit.

  • Sometimes. I find I have pretty good instincts and much of the time, my jump landed me in the correct place :-)
    When it doesn't, I'm okay with admitting that I jumped the gun and try to remind myself to get the facts first next time.

  • I am kind of the opposite. I give the benefit of the doubt or "play the devils advocate". I think both are equally dangerous.

  • used to. now I think I'm pretty good at looking at it from all sides. particularly after being accused of something I SO did not do a few years ago. was constantly hearing from the accuser that this and that clearly proved this and that, and when it came to many things there was no need to hear any viewpoint but her own, because things were so 'cut and dry'

    You'd be surprised at how many people just don't want to hear 'what is the other persons side of it?'
