20 important questions in life: 14

Pause for thought…

The best answer is – “Neither empty or full; the glass is at 50% of its liquid containing capacity.”

Most people think that it’s emotion that makes us human, but what truly separates us from animals is our capacity for reason.

People who can’t transcend emotion, hunch, or the intense desire to be right, avoid evidence based decisions. This has disastrous effects on their personal lives because most conflicts center on establishing the facts about what was said or done. Instead of looking at the evidence, they use strength of will.

It also means a whole series of profesional and life choices will be made using subjective criteria where objective would produce much better results. So…

Is the glass half full or half empty? Or… if you prefer: how good are you at following empirical evidence and data rather than emotion?
