SuperKids Brain Food

Get out of the dogma House. (c)Roger von Oech.Nothing clouds your decision-making abilities like dogma. Example: none other than Plato himself dictated that the circle was the perfect form for celestial movement, and for the next two thousand years, astronomers said that planetary orbits were circular -- even though their observational data suggested otherwise. Even Copernicus used circles in his heliocentric model of the universe. Only after much soul-searching did Kepler use the ellipse to describe the heavenly paths. Everyone has externally-imposed "shoulds" and values that influence their thinking. What dogma is clouding your mind? How does it affect the way you view your issue?
