Perspective Uncovers Illusion

When speaking to people about their disagreements with others, perspective frequently arises as an underlying reason for the disagreement.  It can be mindboggling to understand how someone hears and sees things so differently from how we hear and see the same things.

When someone shares their perspective, they may have helped us identify risks that need to be mitigated, provided an idea that further solidifies the solution on the table, or helped us see a potential mistake.  We need perspective to ensure that we are not caught up in our own illusions.  

This optical illusion is a very visual reminder that perspective can take time to uncover and reveal much more than we initially saw.  Keep this picture in mind whenever you find yourself frustrated with someone else.  Sometimes seeing a different perspective takes time.


P.S. How many different faces did you see?
