The Fake Choice of a Directed Frame

When you ask the question: Is the glass half full, or half empty, you have locked the mind into a directed frame. Even if you try to be a bit clever, as the college-educated answers given here try to be, you may miss the essential nature of the glass, which is that it can be refilled.

Frames govern every aspect of how we think; they are the lens through which we see the world.

We can explain the world to others by embracing their frame, or by getting them to embrace ours, but not by bombarding them with facts alone.

If facts don't fit someone else's frame, they will throw out the facts!
