Flat Earth Knowledge: Our arrogance over knowing what ain’t so – Marc MacYoung

In terms of the established Problem of 1 in 4 women being sexually assaulted. Does the use of this statistic create an accurate view of what is really happening and how it is actually happening? What are some differing views on this statistic?

The first step to Problem Solving is to accurately identify the problem.

Accurate identification requires using a viewpoint that best approximates what is truly happening as opposed to using the viewpoint that is in line with one’s pre-existing beliefs and ideological views.


Evolving your paradigm viewpoint creates a deeper understanding of the issue.
