Why Falsification Matters: The Need for Challenging Our Ideas About the Enneagram

After talking about the obstacles of critical thinking in previous episodes, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore discuss some of the solutions of how to begin to think critically in this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast. They start with falsification, which attempts to find errors in our explanations about the world, and how it applies to the Enneagram and the work that they’re trying to do.

“So the thing that falsification does is that it allows us to be rigorous and cautious and responsible about the claims we make regarding the Enneagram types.” -Mario [06:48]

There are consequences to holding on to beliefs that are not true or accurate.” -María José [10:20]

“It strikes me that, especially in this day and age, we can talk about falsification until we’re blue in the face, but falsification requires some level of trust in someone else that they know what they’re talking about.” -Creek [13:04]
