What would the world be like if we could see other's perspectives in THEIR view?

COP26 Featured Image 2

Have you ever thought about it? How much easier would it be to achieve world peace, to avoid arguments, to maybe even solve the climate crisis faster. If you could perhaps just shift your perspective into someone else's for a couple of seconds, how helpful could that be? If you look at it, considering other people's perspective is helpful. Imagine how eye-opening it could be if you could feel, or understand, people's perspective.

This post is short but carries an important question: what problems in the world could be solved if people thought more from other people's perspective?

    When Corona, quarantines and these stuff have started; crisis, hunger and demolition occurred. If only people could think about each other and help each other and think more from other people's perspective, we could live in peace and quiet, and all problems could be solved like:
    1. Low education.
    2. Natural disasters.
    3. Water problems.
    4. Hunger in some countries.
    5. Climate change.
    6. Population growth.
    7. Diseases and viruses.
    8. Demolition.
    9. Protests.
    10. Conflicts between countries.
    And much more...
    All that has occurred, because of people.

        Yeah, sure!
        All people have their own point off view and their own perspectives, that's what makes us unique. So, together we can make a change into a good way. But, what can we do? It's a good question and here is the answer:
        1. End hunger.
        2. End poverty.
        3. Give quality education.
        4. Ensure water and sanitation for all.
        5. Provide modern energy for everyone.
        6. Reuse, reduce and recycle.
        7. Build infrastructure.
        8. Use less water.
        9. Revitalise the Global Partnership for development.
        10. Vote.
        11. Donate money (if you can).
        12. Listen to everyone and respect them.
        13. Clean up.
        And the most important thing is: to listen to eachother and listen to their opinion, cause everyone's opinion matter, it's their point of view not a fact.
        Well, these small acts and kindness can change everything, and to reach our goal, we have to be interested in that and have perspectives, because life is all about perspective and interests. That's how we all can make a change...
        Thank you for your time!

          Hi, believable_queen. Taking your point no. 1 as an example, would you mind explaining in more detail how hunger could be ended by people taking a different perspective? In other words, what do you think would be practical consequences of people doing that?

    Yes, I do agree with you but there are some difficulties with changing the perspective like if you frequently change your stand and cannot come to your decision, it would be very much problematic while taking decisions. Rather it should be done that we all present our ideas according to our perspective and present a solution. Because the solutions of the climate change problems are different with the change of the region of the world.

    We all know a famous saying, "Two heads are better than one head". This is so true in case of perspectives. Let's say I have to make a decision about something important. Now, if I share this with a bunch of people than I will hear varieties of opinions on that matter. By this way I can have a more clear picture on that matter and make a better decision. In conclusion, if we see through many perspectives on a matter then we can extract the best out of them and make the best decision! People really need to start being open-minded and have respect for other's opinions.

    Abraham Lincoln once said…
    “Judge not, for you would do the same thing if you were in that position.”
    Sure there are people that have similar view points. It’s why we are able to gather around particular causes. Perspective is how we see the world, our own reality.
    It’s unique to ours and ours alone.
    But is our reality the only one that exists?
    Absolutely not.
    Every person has their own realities, whether it’s job positions or people in general. These positions and perspectives are based on our reality.
    From there, we see things differently.
    As a leader or as an individual, it’s widely important to see things in different light. By doing that we add a deeper layer of understanding ourselves and others.You could take a global perspective as well and see the merit in having diversity in your group and social life as well.
    In order to build teams, diversity is needed. We can see that already in work as people take a more collaborative spirit now more than ever.A lot of racial tension that has happened in society today could easily be associated to communities and lifestyles where people aren’t exposed to different groups of people for a good portion of their life.
    That or they grew up with a certain standard and perception of particular people of colour.
    Those barriers can be broken down by having an open mind and even working with other groups of people. Both as a child and as an adult.
    We can see that already in work as people take a more collaborative spirit now more than ever. That being said, there still is some lack in diversity in ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. In fact, a lot of us neglect it.
    It’s for this reason embracing it can help us grow.
    Businesses alone who have embraced diversity have seen increases in innovation and revenue for example.Companies who have women taking leadership positions have seen increased revenue as well as further innovation compared to other businesses who’s leaders are predominately white men.

    Perspectives can help us change the face of the world. For example if I look at the perspectives of my classmate, I might've never quarreled with her in cadet college. Perhaps if I would have put my shoe on hers, I would've understood her struggles. Similarly if everyone understood each other, their might have not been any conflicts. Perspectives can vary since different people different minds but that doesn't mean we should hurt and push away those with different perspectives.

    To solve problems and resolve conflicts constructively participants need to understand each other’s perspectives. Doing so will help them get a clear understanding of all sides of the issue, an accurate assessment of their validity and relative merits, and the ability to think creatively to come up with the potential solutions that maximize joint outcomes and fulfill the interests of all participants. All this requires them to see the issue from both their own and the other persons’ perspectives, and keep both perspectives in mind at the same time as they search for a solution. This is difficult, given that different people have different perspectives, each person may have different perspectives at different times, the same message may be interpreted differently depending on the receiver’s perspective, and misunderstandings often occur because we assume that everyone has the same perspective as we do.

    The matter is wonderful. When looking at a problem, I may have looked at it. I am one of its positives and your view included its negatives. This will help to complete the point of view and not be strict with only one opinion. The problems are many. For example, the issue of unemployment, in my opinion, is common among some countries. If the government looks at the people's view of the matter, it will try to tighten Its intention is to find jobs for them, for example, or to open small projects for them, and it will help increase the state's production and reduce the number of poor in it. What is your point of view to learn from it?!

      Listening to other's perspectives has been a habit since I was a little kid .because I really wanted elder people to listen to me even if still a kid .my voice should be heard . And I had been ignored every time .I really felt embarrassed and didn't want to take to anyone again or give my perspectives .that's learnt me something that I should listen to others whatever was the subject because I don't want anyone to feel as I felt .

    We know that there are many differences between countries. To achieve world peace, we must take many measures, including thinking from the point of view of others. To solve problems and differences, many steps must be taken to achieve peace, including:

    1) Elimination of exclusion: for example, that people do not go to the police to solve their problems, but rather solve them themselves, such as “revenge.” It must be strictly prohibited and journalists who spread discrimination, meaning popular levels, must also be stopped.

    2) Achieving equality between men and women: This is the most common rumor spread in countries, as this discrimination produces violent disputes, and also women may contribute and solve the problem of peace and make it permanent peace.

    3) Sharing wealth equitably: this problem causes family problems and disputes and may cause the killing of each other. A law must also be devised for wealth and how to divide it.

    4) Addressing climate change: It has been proven that climate and population density produce disputes over natural resources such as water and agricultural lands, and this problem must be addressed through cooperation and production of natural resources sufficient for all.

    5) Controlling arms sales: Spending money on arms leads to global tension and conflicts. To solve this problem, money must be spent on the production of working hands and products that support the people, and also a law must be enacted prohibiting arms trade in illegal countries.

    6) If you want a peaceful world, you must start from yourself, for example, when did you last say “sorry” to the person you wronged, and do not spread hatred and hatred, and also you must help the press in spreading peace and its importance on television and seminars, and thus peace prevails.

    This point constitutes a bridge for building and continuity of social relations. When we understand the point of view of the people around us, this leads to understanding and convergence of viewpoints and thus agreement on general points. This skill in social relations leads to the prosperity and continuity of social relations.

    Successful problem-fixing and conflict resolution depends on a person’s ability to take the opponent’s cognitive and affective perspectives and understand how the conflict appears to the other person and how he is is reacting to it. If a person cannot take the perspective of opponents, then his or her understanding of the issue is limited and incomplete.Thus I personally don't believe in imposing beliefs on others,rather the ability to understand and considering others perspectives can be a beautiful practice that can solve problems and conflicts of the world today to a great extent.FOR EXAMPLE:In case of climate change,if all the countries and their leaders are considerate and understanding to the problems of each other then,the problems can be solved much easily because when the highly developed countries become co opertaive towards the lower developed countries,they can help them with their resources if they are lacking any. Thus the countries can come up to a solution unitedly by not neglecting any of their problems and working as a whole.Poverty is another burning issue of the present world.According to the OECD in 2012 the top 0.6% of world population (consisting of adults with more than US$1 million in assets) or the 42 million richest people in the world held 39.3% of world wealth and about 9.2% of the world, or 689 million people, live in extreme poverty on less than $1.90 a day according to the World Bank.But if everyone in the world are sympathetic to each other irrespective of caste religion and poverty,I believe no poverty will be there!Religious conflicts can be ended if we can respect the religion of each other and by comsider the belief of each other. Another point would be the gender discrimination.If men and women try to empathize and respect the rights of each other by forgetting their differences and work in the society side by side celebrating who they are,the world could be a better place.Thus most of the problems and conflicts can come to an end if we respect each other's opinion and views.A small step or gesture can make a change in future in every sector.These may sound impossible at present time but according to me nothing is impossible if you believe.

    most of the time we face some kinds of problems where we can not take proper decision that what we have to do and what not.In that situation we have to think practically. Sometimes our wrong decision can fell us into a great problem. That's why the decision has to be taken by observing the entire surrrounding which may help us in the upcoming situations.

    The well known proverb 'Put yourself in their shoes" rightly relates in this situation. It's difficult to get the true view of something if not experienced by own self. And too different groups of our community have the potential to contribute in distinct section for the overall development of the society. For example women have invaluable knowledge of community and social norms that can be harnessed into climate action. Studies on women and disaster show that when women are engaged as decision makers in resilience and disaster plan they are better to adapt and manage the impacts. .” – UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in 2015 had mindfully said, “We are the first generation that can end poverty. We are also the last generation that can slow global warming before it is too late.”young people being the active souls have proved from the surveys that they are key actors in raising awareness, running educational programmes, promoting sustainable lifestyles, conserving nature, supporting renewable energy, adopting environmentally-friendly practices and implementing adaptation and mitigation projects and agreed that they need more information to prevent climate change .They feel the effects climate change and can make a difference. And thus ensuring their engagement it would get easier to get improved solution for the climate crisis. I believe once people can view the issue and situation both from their own perspective and the other persons' perspectives, they can more easily find mutually beneficial solutions .And it is really important to look at topics from multiple perspectives so that we are able to see the whole picture, which better enables us to find the root cause of the problem and discover a solution that takes the needs and feelings of everyone involved into consideration. In case of climate change solutions, the steps that are already taken may bring a change to some extent but not in the long run. this problem could be solved if the outcomes of it was viewed from different aspects and perspectives. As a result the holes in the existing idea could be found because not all have the thoughts going on the same way, we share different mindset and knowledge which would help us get a preferable environmental solution for communities.

    I believe that arguments and political conflicts would drop down a lot much if this happened. Many a times we fail to comprehend the thoughts of the person on the other side. Hence understanding would increase, conflicts would be much easier to solve and international communication would develop.

    Human beings are social by nature . Their thoughts vary from person to person. So every person see the world from a different perspective. And someone's perspective may be more constructive than other. So we should accept everyone's opinion because who knows , someone can see the world in such a way that nobody can. And if we can learn to see from other people's perspective, world democracy will reach at its peak and there will be no chaos in the society and all sorts of problems including climate change can be solved in no time. So let us try to see the world with other's eyes and hope for a better future of our planet Earth.

    On the contrary , I do not believe there would be any problems in the world if people thought more from other people's perspective? but the amazing thing about humans is that we have the ability to empathise. We can try hard to put ourselves in others shoes and really connect with others. Deep down we are all in the same boat; thrown into this life and dealing with it the best way we can. OK, we're all individuals but if we can cut through the surface, ultimately it is possible to see someone elses perspective. Or let them see yours. Try not to let it get you down. Reach out to others and even though some people won't ‘get’ you, you will meet some who really share your views. You won't feel so alone then.

    To a big point that is true . Being able to predict how people might feel is apart of emotional intelligence . I often wonder how the world would look through another persons’ eyes. I can look at old images and wonder if the way of thinking has changed. How they felt life was 100 years ago. This was the reason for reading Don Quixote, and the Odyssey: to see if I could detect something fundamental had changed. I found there two of my favorite books, but concluded thinking haven’t changed that much

    People must comprehend each other's perspectives in order to solve problems and resolve conflicts productively. This will enable students to gain a thorough awareness of both sides of the issue, an accurate assessment of their validity and relative merits, and the ability to think creatively about viable solutions that optimize joint outcomes and satisfy the interests of all parties. All of this necessitates their seeing the problem from both their own and the other person's perspectives, and keeping both perspectives in mind while making a choice. This is challenging since various people have different perspectives, and each person may have different perceptions of the same thing. And everyone's environment, situation, surroundings may not be the same which causes different individual to experience same crisis in different scales. This hampers people to see everything in a single perspective. skillful_theory can you please kindly tell us How can you overcome the problems that's hindering people to see crisis from other's perpective?

    "what problems in the world could be solved if people thought more from other people's perspective?" this statement is a highly valuable and a deep thought expressing statement.
    If people thought more about others' perspective then it would have solved a lot. But that simple solution would result in creating thousands of problems awaiting for solution. Us humans have a common mentality "Grasp all,loose all" Let us not think of others opinion rather let us think together for every problem's solution. That is a change worth making.

    misunderstandings often occur because we assume that everyone sees things from the same perspective as we do. If we are interested in sports, for example, we often assume that everyone is interested in sports. Seeing from another person's perspective helps us to understand things in a different light and opens up the path for a whole lot more of understanding and tolerance. Sometimes things appear to be big, but in the big picture, it is actually something small.Accurately understanding the cognitive and affective perspective of others results in several positive outcomes. Perspective-taking, by influencing how messages are phrased and received, improves communication and reduces misunderstandings and distortions.

    Einstein demonstrated to us in the early twentieth century that if we look at anything through a different lens, what we perceive will be different. In his example, he used a moving train through the perspective of two different people. One person who is sitting on the train, the other standing outside of the train. If lightning strikes the train at both ends, the person standing outside will say the bolts were simultaneous because the light will hit their eyes at the same time. However, the person sitting on the train who is facing towards the front of the train will say that lightning strike from the back of the train came afterward because the light wouldn’t reach their eyes until after the strike at the front of the train happened. Both perspectives are true, but it depends on which lens you’re looking through – it’s all relative. His theory mainly applies to physics, but we can also apply this to life as well. We tend to get stuck in our own way of thinking. However, any good leader knows that viewing things through a different lens and being empathetic is an essential tool to have. When you allow yourself to see someone else’s point of view, it minimizes arguments and disagreements. Let’s say the two people from the train met to discuss what happened. The person outside of the train would argue that the lightning strikes were simultaneous, but the person riding the train would say they weren’t. If they refuse to see things from one another’s perspectives, the disagreement would never be settled. Think about the people you have a hard time understanding. Is there a co-worker or someone else in your life that you typically don’t see eye-to-eye with? Try to examine these people on a more profound level. What is it about this person that makes it difficult for you to connect with them? Before you judge these people, try to see things from their perspective and empathize with them. Perspectives are the key to understanding each other and why things happen the way they do. There is a lot we can learn from each other’s life experiences. Each of us has amazing pieces of understanding or knowledge to share, and the moment you realize that the more open you will be to gaining more perspectives. Empathy allows us to see not only how different we are from one another, but how similar we are as well. Marcus Aurelius once said, "Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?". After all, we are only human.

    If the world could see what perspectives would be like in a different point of view, the world would be a less selfish and cruel place. The reason for that is because people, who may only think about it from their side of opinion, would balance their belief if they saw it from the other person's shoes. For an example, if a miserable person refused to help the environment and kept using plastic bags or polluting the wildlife, if only they could possibly see it from another point of view such as a person who may be affected from climate change, it would change his opinion on it drastically, just because he can see it from all sides. As well as that, it would make people more open - minded which would help them in their life. Being open-minded would include being open to any suggestion or a issue gathering around which would make you a better person.

    Therefore if the world could see what perspectives there were on all sides, the world would be a better place.

    In my opinion, there should be a multiplicity of viewpoints, and one of the reasons for this is that it contributes greatly to clarifying the problem, making it uncomplicated and easy to solve (as a citizen in society), and the difference of views makes distinction sometimes (as an individual).

    In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful



    Remember that as long as you deal with people, sooner or later you will have to deal with disputes and problems. Disputes and problems are not inherently bad; in fact, they arise from different points of view. Since no two people see the world from the same perspective, the difference is then normal. In fact, the person who agrees with you is telling you all along what you want to hear, not what they actually think.



    What is blamed on conflicts is due to the emotional excitement that they cause. The existence of a conflict means the existence of a sharp difference between two or more individuals, and the conflict is usually related to interests or ideas that have a personal value to one or both of the parties to the conflict, which arose due to the circumstances in which each of them lived, as well as the impact of education becomes clear..



    And conflict that is not treated can lead to violence and lack of submission, and you should note that I said “the one that has not been treated” because what has been treated and ended is a natural matter necessitated by the differences that exist between people.



    The key to successful conflict resolution is to learn the necessary skills so that you can become a successful person in conflict resolution, including our thinking style, which improves our development because it is the means and performance that help us find solutions because the presence of any problem does not necessarily lead to its solution, as most people have the skin and ability To live with these problems



    And it endures, no matter how severe it is. Awareness of problems is not enough unless we can solve and eliminate them before they escalate and we have other problems branching from the same problem, because the problem does not solve itself from its fragmentation into primary and secondary.



    Some of us lack the idea of ​​solving problems because the thinking process is the most difficult work that a person can do, so he does not resort to it except when needed (therefore, the feeling of the problem is what prompts thinking and this is what made some people mislead the feelings of others so that they do not feel the problems because their existence and their interests are linked problems and crises).

    It would be tough to take decisions if we could see others perspective but the decision what would be taken will be very effective and helpfull for all. as for an example in In the United States, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply. This estimate, based on estimates from USDA's Economic Research Service of 31 percent food loss at the retail and consumer levels, corresponded to approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of food in 2010 and today as the supply is increasing the food loss is also increasing. most of the foods here are wasted because of the retailers dont buy them and sometimes the expiration of date. but most of the researchers are now saying that the foods we consume are best before the expiry date but they don't actually get spoilt and they are worth of consuming event after the expiration of death. so here the wholeseller who waste there product due to expiration of date if they could see the world from the poverty affected country persons then they could understand the value of food. and the foods could be supplied to the poverty affected countries, and food crisis can be solved. and by the same, many major problems of the world like carbon emmision' climate change can be solved, suppose if a businessman who uses fuels for all kind of work in his industry, produce carbon gases and influencing the climate change, if he knows how it feels for a boy who just lost his father in a cyclone then the person will feel the gravity of what he is causing to the environment and what its impact are. and he might transform his industry into a environment friendly one and he can contribute to climate stability. usually we think about our own more in the world but if we place ourselves on others live and see what they are facing . then we would be more kind and respectfull towards other and the world would turn into a better place.

    Well, people have the ability to see other's perspectives in their view, its just that people are blinded by greed and hunger for having more. If people were content with what they have, they could have easily seen through the perspectives of other people. Which would have made them sympathetic towards other fellow humans. This would have in turn make them want to solve others' problems as if it were their own, and this would have established peace and harmony and made us 'S

    You have got a mind storming point. Perspective matters a lot in case of problem-solving. What I am thinking may not be the same as another person. Perspective varies from person to person according to their profession, country, and financial condition, etc. Let's have an example. A rich person is thinking that it's time to do something for the world's climate and the environment by using renewable energy like solar panels or any other source. But let's think it from a middle-class person's mind who works hard all day long to earn a little amount of his livelihood.
    Now come to the point. Is it affordable for the middle-class person to use a solar panel? Where will he find money to buy a solar panel while in the meantime he is struggling to earn his one day's livelihood?
    All people are not the same. The creator made us with different intellect, skills, and abilities. So it's not right to take decisions without thinking of other people.

    Mind and perspective are the two things that have always been hidden and which people others cannot read. Every single debate and quarrel happens as we cannot see from others' perspectives. To me, If we really could see from others' perspectives, everyone will be benefited and could share their voice that would not be neglected as others could see their perspective. Some worth mentioning problem solves are: We could easily trust everyone, do any negotiation easily, no more bargaining or quarrel and especially, we can save our Mother Earth as the dishonest people will start to see the perspective of the people who really care for this world.
