Unlearn Your Position

Posted in General, Hollywood, Quotes

This past weekend I had the opportunity to watch an American film classic "12 Angry Men" with Henry Fonda. For anyone interested in unlearning, it is a great and entertaining 12 angry mentutorial.

My favorite scene, however, occurred when one juror (Juror #11) decided to switch his vote from guilty to not guilty.

Here's his reponse to Juror #3 when he was angrily asked this question: "Look, you voted guilty. What side are you on?"

"I don't believe I have to be loyal to one side or the other. I'm simply asking questions."

The moral of the story? Don't let loyalities get in the way of asking new — and sometimes difficult and uncomfortable — questions.
