Spiral Dynamics

I don’t remember where I came across this article, but it details a framework for understanding other people’s value systems and worldview.

Link to article.

There are some really good distinctions in the article, such as clarifying the difference between how people think about things, and the things people think about. For example, two people can hold completely opposing beliefs, but they are thinking about those beliefs in the exact same way – making them much more similar than they may first appear.

A good blog to read

It’s hard to find good blogs these days, as traditional blogging has given way to things like Medium, Facebook, and Insta. However, there are still a few blogs I find with great content, and this is one of them.

The author writes on personal development, statistics, mathematics, software, and random interesting facts you didn’t know you wanted to know.

A worldview that makes sense

I have a lot of respect for people who spend time thinking about and developing a consistent worldview that aligns their personal values with reality. This person has done that, and they explain it in an entertaining way in this article. Quote is from the article and summarizes fairly well:

“The goal is to grow wiser over time, and wisdom falls into your lap whenever you’re conscious enough to see the truth about people, situations, the world, or the universe. The fog is what stands in your way, making you unconscious, delusional, and small-minded, so the key day-to-day growth strategy is staying cognizant of the fog and training your mind to try to see the full truth in any situation.”
