Beware of Barnum statements.
(meaningless phrases to suit everybody)
The Barnum effect, named after the showman PT Barnum, observed that “we’ve got something for everyone,” is the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people. This effect can provide a partial explanation for the widespread acceptance of some beliefs and practices.
Be aware of what you hear in all media, when people justify their actions, and non-actions.
We have to find the real truth for ourselves, or live by others’ Barnum Statements.
The Buddha said, “Test all my statements, as you would test for pure gold.
Know your own mind!”
