Humility

It occurs to me that arrogance consists precisely in the suppression of diversity of thought.  It precludes, most notably, the thought "I could be wrong".

Arrogance reduces, formally, the complexity of an intra-psychic system, and thus intrinsically reduces its systemic capacity for accurate perception.

It is, as de Bono argued, a "mistake in the future".  That is why.
