The Thinker’s Thoughts

This was a response to a recent statement I made that “Great minds don’t think alike, they think for themselves.”

“It’s true that people, generally, do not think alike, but if you are trained logically, there is tendency that you will think alike because you are faced with facts. Oh!  The other philosophy; “They think for themselves”.  This is obnoxious.  Anyone who thinks for his or herself alone is selfish, and has nothing positive to contribute to human race.”

Wow!  First let me say that most “facts” have the common flaw of being limited to the person’s perspective who’s presenting them.  So, please get as much information possible in order to make the best decision for yourself.  I’m sure no one would take issue with that…right?

And secondly, I wonder why anyone would think it’s defined as obnoxious when you’re not necessarily influenced by others…and because of so, you’re not capable of making a positive contribution to the human race?

I feel it’s my strong independent thinking which has created mutiple opportunities for me to help others.  I’m quite confident with a cookie cutter mindset, I wouldn’t have been able to have a positive impact when speaking to Bronx High School students (especially when I’m not an athlete or entertainer) or even have the gull to write a book that inspired a reader to reconnect with their father.

Regardless of how wrong or right, I love when what I think sparks others to think…so keep the feedback coming!!!
