Prosperity involves diverse businesses, diverse talents, diverse functions, diverse resources and diverse markets in diverse countries. An approach to benefit from interaction exists where diversity itself becomes the valued focus.
The benefit comes from learning and respecting different views. The motto: There are no absolutes! If that is what feels essential and right to you, then there are indeed no absolutes and this is how you handle the world:
Explain and uphold diverse multiple viewpoints
Maintain relativism and impartiality
Learn from any source
Go for win-win-win (you, me, social context)
Regard function as essential: ideas must work
See reality as messy and ever-changing
Take a holistic or systems viewpoint
Indicate immunity to pressure and resist any pressure in practice
Exert autonomy without causing harm to others
Think of individuals you know who obviously exemplify the category. In doing so, remember that it is the overall pattern that counts—not any particular interaction.
Resist external pressures and refuse to be controlled.
Be impartial and neutral.
Be sceptical of convention.
Is this being far too clever and intellectual?
Might it be a recipe for over-complicating matters?
Doesn't impartiality mean «sitting on the fence»?
Isn't extreme neutrality disconnection or a lack of commitment?
Isn't refusal to bend to social pressures just biting the hand that feeds?
By insisting to the rest of us that we don’t see things as they are, and that instead we see things as we are, the perspective-centred person turns our comfortable certainties into a chimera.
If all perspectives have equal validity, then the truth of a situation doesn’t exist or is at least wholly obscured. It must surely be possible to transcend this seemingly sterile intellectualism (or is it hidden egotism?) to become self-aware and see things clearly. Otherwise no-one would ever be effective!
Some say that the only benefit worth pursuing is lucidity. If you agree, and even if you don't, look now at being Reality-centred.
