How to Understand Others 1

English Translation

Dad takes out a piece of paper. A tree was drawn at the front, while a bird was drawn in the face.

Dad shows both sides of the paper to his <2year old daughter, puts the tree-side of the paper toward the daughter and asks, “what does dad see?”

Daughter answers, “tree.”

Dad tries the same experiment with his older daughter, the answer is “dad sees a bird.”

Quick Conclusion

To communicate effectively, we have to figure out what people actually see first, instead of assuming others have all the information that we know.
