You have a problem if you are quick at connecting the dots.
There is a downside to every strength.
If you are great at connecting the dots, then it’s amazing that you can:
⚪ create ideas out of nothing
⚪ troubleshoot problems
⚪ make quick decisions
⚪ learn new things easily
As a personal example – I know I could be quite poor in active listening.
The problem is that midway through someone else’s sentence, I think I know what the person is saying.
I connect the dots.
Then, I stop listening and start thinking of my response.
More often than not, I am wrong with what was about to be said.
And that leads to conflict situations and then – poor relationships.
Stop connecting the dots in all contexts. It’s not always a strength.
– Hari from the Gang
