If you’re able to take a look at the impulses that drive you and admit them, it will help you understand other people better, make you wiser, and more careful in your actions.
If you understand that you’re not harmless then that can make you a lot more careful with what you say and do. If you think you are harmless that can make you naïve and vulnerable.
You need reference for the perspective in which you see the world. The wisdom comes from understanding what’s underneath other people’s behavior and being aware of your own intentions. [Jordan Peterson Maps of Meaning Lectures]
