Impact of Errors of Perception Effectiveness as A Critical Thinker Discussion


Question Description

Our author suggests that many of our personal assumptions are implied and often difficult to detect. We need to be able to make assumptions as we navigate through daily life.

You may use first person in your discussion post.
