Weltanschauung: the guiding principles

Weltanschauung: the guiding principles

#5:  We believe that the constructive dialogue at ActiveRain fosters transparency among consumers about the industry. We understand that ActiveRain plays a key role in demonstrating the integrity and professionalism of those engaged in our industry.

In my opinion this principal applies to life in general as well as AR culture.

Communication is critical to any business, not just real estate.  Understanding

and realization does not usually come from a one time conversation.  

Especially with someone not familiar with a particular industry or subject. It 

 is in multiple visits to a subject that one grows knowledgeable.  


To validate that knowledge to a stronger point is to have multiple sources 

 from which information is obtained.  Like looking at any object in your

hand.  It is best considered by turning it and viewing from all different sides.


It may be the same object all viewing and yet the subtle nuiances may differ 

from viewer to viewer.  With those differences being brought forth by the 

separate people who viewed it, better light is shed upon what ever it may be. 


The same holds true for information and ideas.  It does not always make 

either, of a different idea or view, right or wrong.  Often in their being no 

absolute right or wrong, more clarity is found of an object because of the 

different opinions and views afforded to the same object/subject.  


In my opinion, Active Rain offers myself, and consumers alike, to learn from 

many different perspectives on many different subjects.

Yes, there are definitely differing perspectives on issues here on ActiveRain. I love learning about the different processes as well - what is "normal" in real estate in NY is definitely not normal in other states.

Mark- so well put and this can apply to life in general.  The more (correct) information we have the better we are to make decisions and form opinions.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - You wrote a terrific post! I couldn't agree with you more. I also loved the conclusion about AR members offering very different perspectives. I didn't think about that previously. Thank you for sharing your insights and enlightening me too!

I think it's interesting that after reading a post I may have one response - but after reading the differing viewpoints in the comments, I may have a different, or at least altered opinion.

We help each other turn that object over in our hands to see all sides.

Respecting others is the key rule for me, especially in online communities where we communicate mostly via written messages.

Well put and it is true we need to consider things from different viewpoints to truly understand a subject. When you can argue any side you understand it.
