Why are perceptual positions important?
By changing your perception position, you show your flexibility (proactive behavior) in an ultimate way. You will be presented with a different map of the world if you assume the position of a trapezoid artist, for example. Or the position of a fly on the wall.
By taking other perspectives to get more empathy (second position), clear objective feedback (third position), information and even omdenk capabilities. In fact, by being able to observe from multiple perspectives, we are so flexible that we even give ourselves optimal feedback.
The third observation position is useful, for example, for judging a situation without judgment. If you were to look through a lens, what would you see? A Frown! Some add an interpretation: one says: sad. The other says: angry. What is the only thing you know 100%? There is a frown!
