Develop the habit of asking questions to find out more about someone or something else. If you don't understand, ask questions. Don't worry if you can't find the courage, or feel frightened about asking. Your presumptions about another person, a group of people, or a past or current event, will often be wrong. Don't assume. You are not a mind reader. Asking questions helps you to step outside of your own world and to check out your thoughts. Have a go: you may well be pleasantly surprised.
