Are you able to analyze a story from both sides? Understanding where both sides of the story are coming from?

I find that a lot of people are so stuck in their own beliefs or stuck on being right, that they don't know how to look at a situation without a bias opinion/point of view.
You can still believe what you believe with AND be able to understand and see where someone else is coming from!

  • Im a Libra, I always see both sides, but that dosnt mean I agree with one side more than the other. It depends on the story being told and the facts presented. I dont let my beliefs in anything in particular cloud my judgement, or at least I try not to let it cloud my judgement.

  • I'm actually very good at it. So much so, that i thought about going back to school to study psychology & be a relationship therapist. I think I'd be a GREAT therapist or psychologist.

    Since we're talking, I'm a Pisces-Aquarius cusp. Very, compassionate, empathetic & understanding....

    Bummer about your husband. Aries are leaders & always have to be right....they don't spare much room for debate.

  • I can. I still generally hold fast to my opinions but I can understand the other side.

  • I am very OPEN MINDED. I strive to see where the other person is coming from--why they feel the way they do. Sometimes, my opinion is the one that changes!

  • I try to put myself in other peoples shoes but in some cases they truly are either over reacting or just not seeing the light and that irks me. But I do try to see where the other person is coming from, thats just my nature.

  • I use critical thinking and when it comes to that I put my own beliefs aside and figure out what I am not seeing and work my waay back to the wholes in my own thinking and I either get smarter or learn to diagree.
