The importance of understanding multiple perspectives

In photos, the size of objects is based on the position of objects. For example, an object in a photo will appear to be larger than it really is as it is positioned close to the lens of the camera. However, pictures are not the only things that are based on perspective. 

Actually, no matter what the topic is in life, there are always at least two different perspectives. It is important to make sure that you understand both perspectives and sides of the topic before you make a decision on who you think is right. This ensures you have all the information and facts necessary in order to make the most educated decision possible. 

One mistake that is commonly made is that people forget to check the sources of their information. Every source has some bias. As a result, you have to look at and compare several sources to determine which parts of the information are true. Making sure that all of your information comes from reputable sources is also a major part of determining the truth about a situation because information that comes from unreliable sources often contain lies that can poison your view on a topic.

Without finding out the truth about a topic, a person cannot make an accurate judgment about that topic. That in turn is why it is important to use reputable sources to gather truthful information on a topic before you form an opinion.

“The truth is always the strongest argument,” said the Greek writer Sophocles.
