1 a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof: they made certain assumptions about the market | [with clause ] : we’re working on the assumption that the time of death was after midnight.
I was amused at assumptions made by what I had posted, and it came to mind that people making assumptions say a hell of a lot more about themselves and there characters and motives.
Assumptions are made without fact, or proof, so already this sets the scene for disaster, assumptions are just mere mental conjectures that do not thrive on reason ability and are therefor, questionable.
An extreme and overt reaction, made by some one on an assumption, says something very clear about them, the reaction is that the issue pertains to them in some way, (the assumption) but if it didn’t then that extreme reaction only underscores the guild or involvement in something that that has caused the person to make such an assumption …. guilt, anger, jealousy etc…..the reaction on the assumption purely unveils the true character, and motives.
Taking the time to ask questions and find the truth, and you will not have to make any assumptions at all.
“By and large, I seem to have made more mistakes than any others of whom I know, but have learned thereby to make ever swifter acknowledgment of the errors and thereafter immediately set about to deal more effectively with the truths disclosed by the acknowledgment of erroneous assumptions.”
Richard Buckminster Fuller
So if have assumed to much in the writing of this, take heart in it’s acknowledgement.
