Dialectical Open Mind Thinking

Dialectical means that 2 ideas can booth be true at the same time. What does dialectical open mind thinking mean? Here’s a view of what is it :

  • There is always more than one true way to see a situation and more than one true opinion, idea, thought, or dream.
  • Two things that seem like (or are) opposites can both be true.
  • All people have something unique, different, and worthy to teach us.
  • A life worth living has both comfortable and uncomfortable aspects (happiness and sadness; anger and peace, hope and discouragement, fear and ease etc).
  • All points of view have both true and false within them.

Examples :

  • Your re right & the other person is right.
  • You are doing the best that you can & you need to try harder, do better, and be more motivated to change.
  • You can take care of yourself & you need help and support from others.

Being dialectical means :

  • Letting go of self righteous indignation.
  • Letting go of “black and white”, “all or nothing” ways of seeing a situation.
  • Looking for what is “left out” of your understanding of a situation.
  • Finding a way to validate the other person’s point of view.
  • Expanding your way of seeing things.
  • Getting “unstuck” from standoffs and conflicts.
  • Being more flexible and approachable.
  • Avoiding assumptions and blaming.

      Creativity, the generation of work that is both novel and appropriate, is an important skill for coping with many different circumstances in life and for organizations and societies. It is one of the most important catalysts of social development and improvement. People use dialectical thinking to be holistic, reconcile contradictions, and emphasize changes when processing information and managing problems.
