Jumping to Conclusions: Bad, Bad, Bad!!!

It is not uncommon for people to jump to conclusions. That is bad, bad, bad!!! It is a practice that can destroy friendships and relationships. And as I can personally attest from being the recipient of those who practice by acting upon this type of attitude and behavior, ‘jumping to conclusions’ can tear families apart.

“Jumping to conclusions is a common type of error or fallacy in reasoning or thinking, in which a person draws conclusions which are not warranted from available information.”
That is the opening sentence of an article that I read over on cazort.net, the opinion and personal website of Alex Zorach. I strongly urge you to go over to read the entire article, Jumping to Conclusions.

Also, here is the opening sentence of another article that I read:
“A lot of us jump to conclusions when we half-overhear something or see only part of what someone’s doing, and make it worse by relating our mistaken conclusions to others.”
I also urge you read that entire article, Getting It Wrong, Jumping to Conclusions, which is brought to you by Personal Development @ Suite101.

Wait, don’t rush to conclusions. I am not done with this Roland’s Ramblings, yet. There is more good reading on the subject. Go on over to the Ezine @rticles® website to read:
