Better To Remain Silent And Be Thought A Fool

At a recent leadership retreat a senior executive quoted the statistic that 90% of all conflicts are based on misunderstandings.

Immediately one of my peers requested the source of that statistic.

I wisely resisted the urge to shout, "the writers of the TV show Three's Company."

The exec attributed the statistic to Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis.

The questioner obviously didn't realize that 68% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
