A frame of reference is a critical thinking skill that means point of view or perspective, a frame of reference is shaped by our prior knowledge, assumptions values or language, about others. But majority of the time, we are engaged in proving our frame of reference whereas the success lies in understanding the other’s frame of reference and discuss what matters most.
Our frames of reference influence our thinking and our decision-making. Not only do we need to identify our own frames of reference but we need to be able to identify other people’s frame of references as well, since each person has his own frame of reference, you can begin to imagine the difficulty of reaching an agreement in a business meeting where everyone has their own personal perspective.
When it comes to making decisions and solving problems, it’s important to recognize that we all have frames of reference, and that they can greatly influence our thinking and decision-making. A good question to ask yourself to help you identify your own frame of reference.
