I was teaching a class once about the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator when it became clear that one of the students was having a breakthrough in understanding. She said, “So THAT’S why that person annoys me so much!!” It is actually one of the central insights into exploring human personality – many of the struggles we have with others arise from the fact that we see things in different ways and from different perspectives – and that’s a GOOD thing. Like a wise person once said, “It’s not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
May we commit ourselves to discovering and celebrating our incredible diversity as the precious gift that it is.
Have a great week, everyone!
