Wearing Blinders

Found this quote today on TonyMorganLive.com:

“The moment we label a person or a situation, we put on blinders to all evidence that contradicts our diagnosis.”

I would say we do this with everything from our politics to religion, from where we shop to how we judge people we encounter.

There is a huge upshot to labeling, no?
