In defense of Individual Differences
27-Sep-2016

Differences between people are generally considered to be a bad thing. When we see someone who is somehow different from us we are suspicious of them. We tend to celebrate what we have in common, not what makes us different as people

There is a tendency to emphasize more on the unity rather than the diversity aspect of people’s personalities.

“At the end of the day, we are all the same”

But are we really? If we were really all the same, wouldn’t the world just be a boring mass of the same person replicated over and over again. What a lackluster world that would be! One shudders to even think about it.

The truth is that human beings are different. We react to situations differently, we like different kinds of music, we cope with stress differently, we organize things differently, we approach the same problem from various perspectives differently. And it is these individual differences that make us interesting.

Imagine if the world was only full of creative, artistic people, no schedules, no deadlines, “Art for Art’s sake? Wouldn’t that be fun? Fun, it certainly would be but would it be functional? Who would keep records? Who would raise funds for making art? Who would feed the artists? Sometimes, as irritating as the stick-in-the-mud types may be, the world needs them to rescue it from spiraling into chaos.

On the other hand, what would happen to the world if it were only full of routine builders? Like clockwork, they would go to office, work all day, come back home and go to bed. The world would have no cheer, no art, no music. Every day would be the same dreary mess.

The point is that is takes all kinds to make the world. And it is a good thing that we are all different. Each of us has something new and unique to bring into the world.

What we must do however, is to be aware of individual differences and make our difference our strength. We need to figure out where we can contribute, to our family, to our job, to our organization and make sure that we are in the right place.

Let’s celebrate our differences and make the most of them.
