Adjust Your Seat

Much of the time, educational content and interpersonal advice is shaped to be generic. It's meant to be the least wrong for the greatest number of possible listeners, and thus is geared toward a sort of imagined average person.

However, no one is in fact average on all axes, and thus even very very good advice is going to be importantly wrong for everyone, in some fashion.


Develop a habit of noticing the ways in which incoming advice is systematically wrong for you as an individual, and adjusting accordingly.
