Sit across the table long enough

Imagine the person most unlike you, or a person you hate, a person you fear, or even better, a person whose opinions you think are stupid.

What would happen if you sat across a table from that person with the intent to listen? Just to listen—not to prove them wrong or bring them over to your side.

My bet: Sit at the table long enough and you’ll find you’re more alike than you thought.
