Our tendency is to zealously defend our own position without considering any other opinions. Wed rather be right than learn something. Lets say, for instance, that a master in our profession comes for a visit. Instead of listening, we spout all our controversial ideas in front of the crowd, ones that directly oppose the experts. We take the contrary position just to to spark a discussion. Some of us may even enjoy picking fights with the opposition; when everyone gets riled up, we take off. Wouldnt it be much better to shut up, listen and learn? We have radical ideas and grand visions of Utopia, but these concepts are rooted in the need to be rebellious, contrary and reactionary, rather than in any type of grounded reality. Extreme and outrageous behavior is very likely during this time.
