“When you develop your opinions on the basis of weak evidence, you will have difficulty interpreting subsequent information that contradicts these opinions, even if this new information is obviously more accurate.”
― Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
My passions lay in decision-making and interpreting information with lateral thinking and going with what I consider is right in spite of data that would suggest otherwise. When you develop your opinions based on weak evidence, you will have difficulty interpreting subsequent information that contradicts these opinions, even if this new information is obviously more accurate.
I am highly skilled about intercultural communication with a unique blend of experience in teaching, writing, public speaking, and management in internationally diverse setting and remote work experience.
