On Changing People's BELIEFS...

Blog quote #885...
"For those who believe no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible."  -Stuart Chase-

Superb quote here, with a variety of ways to interpret it.

A scientist may disagree with it as s(he) will always be trying to find proof to go against their belief. To the open minded, they would also likely disagree with this statement as they'd  listen and then three things could happen. These three are  a.) they could still agree to disagree  b.) they could modify, saying 'Geez, I never thought about that, let me re-adjust my position slightly,' or c.) they could say  'Wow, I never saw that, you are right. I now see and think what you think.'

Then you have the hard headed, opinionated human who is locked in on their belief. Could be a political or spiritual belief, could be a thought on how to run a business, to play a game, to solve a problem or  anything else. To that individual, this quote applies perfectly. They have their thought, and it's not going to change.  

As a heads up, it's usually more amicable and easier to associate with the open minded type  Hmm...

That's my view...what say you?

More great things await
