What's Your Number?
What's your worldview? And what experiences have helped you develop it? Before engaging in a debate of any kind, what if individuals truly understood their answers to these two questions? Whether nationality, gender, race, class, religion, occupation, or creed, people find it difficult to understand others who are different than themselves. Using a number as a universal representation of our worldview would allow us to immediately reflect on our own experiences, quickly compare our experiences to another person’s experiences and judge the differences without judging the person. Dr. Jandel Crutchfield's research and teaching at The University of Mississippi focuses on social work, cultural competencies, and racial reconciliation. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
