You believe that everyone is equal, despite the differences in each member of the population. And although everyone may have different needs, all those needs are equally strong. This should make you more tolerant of extreme behavior, and less offended when it touches you personally. For instance, if someone cuts into line ahead of you, will you make a scene about it? If you`re caught in the friction between family members, will you turn up the heat with inflammatory remarks? Everyone gets to have his or her say, even if that doesn`t solve the problem. At least you`re open to talking about it.
