Thanks for this post. And some of the comments just serve to reinforce the points made.

As human beings, so many of our biases and predispositions go unnoticed and don't make it past our subconscious, therefore when someone points them out to us our first instinct is to say "I never saw it, my experience was different".

It's up to us to recognize the biases inherent in our way of thinking and to do our best to be conscious of them so we can try and work around them.

Posts like this serve as occasional reminders to all of us who want to work on ourselves.
