Module 4
Mistakes to be prevented

Discussions end with no agreement reached because of the attitude, "That is all there is to be said on the subject."

Prejudice arises from this attitude: "That is all that can be said about a nationality, creed, class, or individual."

Learning is blocked by an attitude of, "I know all about it."

Rumor and gossip result because people accept a statement as "all the story."

False impressions result when people accept one cause as the explanation of a complex matter.
