Does it sound absurd to think that even though a person has knowledge on a subject, he or she might make mistakes?
The truth is, it happens, and more than people can imagine or even want to admit.
It's true that the mind is designed to make calculations and reach conclusions, but it only operates based on the data you input into it (I'll show you in a future post the ways in which you do that).
When you input into your mind: false, incomplete or misunderstood data, it will make calculations that will throw false conclusions.
The world remedy for this phenomenon which I call "the mind fed with false data", is the justification.
Nevertheless, a different picture does exist:
What does the mind do when it has correct data and still makes mistakes?
As I already mentioned, it does sound absurd to even try and reason why would someone make mistakes even though they have the right knowledge?
Yet, it does happen.
Just like with the "mind fed with false data" phenomenon, the person will have to use the same remedy: the justification.
But in this case, the person will also have to add the frustration of having made a mistake even though he or she had the necessary knowledge to avoid it.
So, what to do?
To undersand this a little better, let's imagine a person called John.
John is a very experienced and very knowledgeable salesperson in the consulting industry who has been a consistent top performer in the past.
Yet, even though
He has been struggling to get sales and new customers lately and is feeling really frustrated since he has no clue as to what is happening.
You should know there are 3 main reasons why John is making mistakes even though he has the necessary knowledge to achieve the results he seeks.
This is rooted in many factors, but I'll show them to you as summarized as possible
Reason #1: Too much effort.
Reason #2: Not enough effort.
Reason #3: Lack of effort.
So what does this mean for you?
As you might've noticed in John's situation, having knowledge is not everything, you must also know how to calculate.
You must know this in order to be able to communicate with a person:
(Anger and fear are manifestations of how a person feels.)
These emotions are identified as emotional tones and there's a very wide array of them, which flow in an ascendant or descendant way.
These emotions flow from:
Very low tones, like apathy, grief, etc. to
Very high tones, like enthusiasm and serenity.
There are ways to identify them in a way that you can calculate your approach with great certainty, allowing your effort to achieve the necessary results.
Same thing happens not only with people, but anything you need to approach in order to communicate, may it be a situation, a problem or even a place.
Now that you know that even though you possess knowledge, you might still make mistakes, this shouldn't discourage you, because now you know you can handle it.
