Did you ever stop to think, that it's not so much what you think, as it is how you think?
And on a serious note . . . I am not sure exactly what you are asking, but let me give it a shot. Two people might be thinking about the same issue, but because they have different personalties and different types of intelligence, their perceptions of the same point are also different?
well, that is what i taught my students. i told them i wasn't going to teach them what to think, but HOW to learn and HOW to think, which is sort of necessary to the learning process. i also used to ask them what they thought a writer's most important tool was. "a pencil," some would say. "paper!" the answer i finally gave them was "something to say."
