    It is very difficult to give up your preconceived notions at times. Even some very intelligent people are prone to this. Einstein, at times, when arguing against quantum mechanics sounded exactly like the detractors to his theories of relativity.

    I am not asking you to give up my pre-conceived ideas and I don’t pretend to have heard Einstein talk…

    … Good book, “Vital Lies, Simple Truths: Psychology of Self Deception” by Daniel Goleman. Bit old now, 80s I think, but he’s done some amazing books.
