Can We Be Objective?

“If a group circles around sacred values, they will evolve into a tribal-moral community,” he said. “They’ll embrace science whenever it supports their sacred values, but they’ll ditch it or distort it as soon as it threatens a sacred value.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/08/science/08tier.html?_r=4&partner=rss&emc=rss

For the record, this article has nothing to do with individual planning.  It is an article that suggests the challenges with thinking as a group.  Articles like this can be interesting. As always, they question whether we can be objective about our findings. This is something that always concerns my thoughts.

When any person invests time to learning a subject, they risk giving up their objectivity to reviewing their findings.  The only thing I can do is to pledge to my clients that if I find a better way, that I will allow myself to have the integrity to share my revelation.
