We all know what they say about "assuming." But assuming something is not just a random guess or a proverbial "shot in the dark." Rather, there are often agendas or biases that drive our assumptions. Assumptions are often far more than simple or naive guesses. Many times they are our attempts to push an agenda, or drive a situation in the direction we wish it to go. Often assumptions are really more the manner in which we broadcast a bias or manipulate a situation to the end that we desire. We can assume something to be something, so that in the assuming we actually make it what we want it to be. While subtle, such behaviors can be terribly destructive. This brief podcast outlines this interesting and thought-provoking dynamic so that we might have an enhanced awareness of it in our own lives, as well as the lives of others.
