Miller's Law

"MILLERS LAW: In order to understand what another person is saying, you must assume it is true and try to imagine what it could be true of."

I like the above saying. What does it mean?

I don't know... I think to automatically presume something to be true could cause one to be frightfully gullible. I think there are easier ways to understand what another person is saying, namely, repeat what they have said, in your own words, back to them, and ask them if that is what they meant.

Assuming and imagining aren't permanent. The way I see it, it's just shifting your reality to the side a bit and opening up to take their perception as your own. I have to do this with Tom sometimes, and it is HARD. But its an amazing experience to let go of your belief in the way things are and adopt someone elses for a bit--seeing the world through their eyes will ideally bring about a greater understanding. If you realy do look.
