Today Daniel Peeks and Bev Elliott join me for a conversation about assumptions. We all know that its not a good idea to make assumptions. The problem is that assumptions are sneaky and we often fail to recognize when we’re making them. The very nature of emotional and relational learning is organized around the process of making assumptions - or anticipating what others might be thinking and feeling and what they are about to do. And at the core of that learning is an assumption that past experience is a good predictor for future experience. Sometimes that true, but often its not… particularly in intimate relationships.
