Cube48 – I Don’t Know : The Truth Many Will Not Say

This cube comes from July 2009, an episode of EconTalk where Russ Roberts talks with Justin Fox. This particular segment focused in on precision & how people react under stress & uncertainty.

Starting Questions:

  1. Are there desired results that you really cannot measure easily or completely?
  2. Do you really want answers or do you want the truth?
  3. Think of someone who tends to say “I don’t know” – what profession is that individual in?

  1. This cube provided an opportunity to ponder uncertainty and absolutes. Quite frankly people who wave their hand in the air touting they have the answers scare the hell out of me. People that are coming from a perspective well, research shows or this has been my experience is coming from a humble perspective in that they are sharing information. None of us are Zars or can make the sun rise or set. Sharing information allows one room to make an informed decision and the same dignity to fall on their face.

    I have a friend who last year had twin girls. They had never had children. I asked him are you ready…I was so daunting…man your life is really going to change. He said, “I don’t know….I gues we will find out.” One day at a time they are doing it. It is inspiring to watch. I don’t know anything about being a parent but I have learned by watching my friends. Experience is often times our greatest teacher. It all begins with an action…you can make decisions all day long but until I follow it up with action…”Faith without Works is Dead.”
