They often try to believe that their ways of knowing, predicting and controlling are superior to other people's ways of being themselves---by virtue of how they themselves exclude themselves from their own considerations and consciousness. They try to forget that in making their judgments of superiority of ways---they are engaged in reflexive considerations. They do not honestly and favorably distinguish themselves from other by not engaging in reflexive considerations. Rather, they distinguish themselves from others by refusing to be honest about how they engage in reflexive considerations. Such a distinction does not merit respect or support of any kind. It is not possible to understand reflexive relationships in terms of an exclusively objective paradigm; thus, people who are compulsively objective often deny the reality of reflexive relationships---or else they deny the importance of reflexive relationships. They are too embarrassed to deal with reflexive relationships, and too embarrassed to acknowledge their own reflexive embarrassment. Thus their objectivity is limiting rather than liberating. Objectivity is incapable of encompassing reflexivity, while reflexivity is capable of encompassing objectivity. Objectivity is exclusive, while reflexivity is inclusive. The range of the kinds of understanding which objectivity can facilitate is much more limited---than is the range of the kinds of understanding which reflexivity can facilitate. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
