To understand others, ask people about their experience and what they are thinking and then listen to them, sounds easy but most of us forget this basic principle. Mindwise talks about how our minds work, how we understand what's happening in the minds of others and even how our mind can give personalities to objects and sometimes treat people as less human. We think we know how people feel, think and what they believe, and continue to get it wrong by our biases and other stereotypes. If we do have to make assumptions, don't expect it to be right and allow people to clarify themselves.
