It is lonely at the top. A sparring partner for difficult decisions is an invaluable asset. We all have thinking traps and flawed decision making. Having a thinking partner greatly reduces the risk of making a false move.
There are a number of common “Thinking Traps” that a sparring partner can help you avoid. They are the following:
Jumping to conclusions Emotional reasoning Unfair comparison Magnifying and minimizing Personalizing Tunnel vision Externalizing Mind reading All-or-nothing thinking Disqualifying the positive Overgeneralizing Fortune telling
It might be possible that you are in a thinking trap.
