Living in Minneapolis I have had the pleasure of experiencing many different cultures and religions. It has been such a joy to be exposed to others so different in thinking, customs, and dress. However, in a country where everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs, i find it a bit stressful at times (a bit like walking on egg shells) to keep my foot out of my mouth. What i mean is that sometimes having your own opinion and expressing it is seen as judging. Judging is always looked down upon. In this class I found the discussion around heuristics of the human mind to be very interesting. Through studying the ways that humans think and learn i've found that our brain is actually (to a point) programed to judge a book by it's cover and make assumptions of people based on their outward appearance. While there are still times when this kind of judgements are unacceptable, heuristics provide somewhat of an explanation. This is what I will remember 50 years from now.
