When trying to figure out how a person will treat you in any given situation, which do you think most impacts your assumptions?
1. How other people have treated you in similar situations.
2. How you have treated other people (including the person in question) in similar situations.
3. How the person in question has treated you in similar situations.
4. How the person in question has treated other people in similar situations.
I realized recently that I mostly do the first of these four, with maybe overlaying hints of the second. But I don’t always think of the third and it rarely occurs to me to think about the fourth, even though those are probably the most relevant data points!
I’m putting this up as a mini-post and a place-holder, because I want to pull this apart some more with folks.
