Intelligence and Metaphor - by Michael Mallows

From what deep insecurities do we seek to diminish other peoples sense of self? To dim the light of their reasoning? To shout them down, shut them up,  make ourselves right so that they, or their ideas, will be left out of our map?

I have long been aware of the problems ensuing from an inability to make suitable comparisons or metaphors. Many of my individual or corporate clients have created repetitive and predictable patterns and they are not easily going to allow new experiences or ideas to change their world view.
