Tracking your own misconceptions

It is certainly refreshing when,once in a while, you realize that you can do some things in a completely different way. Richard mentions a little gem in his last post (the actual post topic is somewhat unrelated – hiring qualities of an analyst):

I’ll tell you a little secret: I keep track of all my misperceptions when I’m researching a topic so that I remember what its like to be on the receiving end. You don’t know that you have a misperception until you trip over it, but once you do trip over it, write it down and remember how you felt before you figured out how things really work.

Well said. Keeping track of my own misperceptions? I feel that I always needed this, but I didn’t know it. Until now… 🙂
