Echo Chamber

It can feel very validating when an idea or a person aligns with your worldview. The aim of development should be flexibility, not dogma. We should try to expose ourselves to multiple perspectives from a range of sources. A flexible thinker welcomes the challenge, learns more and develops a stronger sense of self.
