Rule 10


Rule 10 Individuality
2009.10.12 CE

Rule 10 – People are individuals, and should not be judged individually in the light of groups.

Every person is an individual. Even though they will have certain characteristics in common with any one group they may be associated with, you cannot say nor should you assume that any one characteristic is part of any one individuals makeup. An example would be running. Statistically men are faster runners than women.

The last I knew only 12 men in the world could out run the fastest woman in the world, and none of them are probably in the county you live in. And there are about 3 Billion men/boys who cannot outrun her. One needs to keep this in mind when judging which individual will be best at what.
