Last week, we talked about a Delphi study.
This week, you will explore more personal levels of research and share with
your classmates and instructor your questions, realizations, and thoughts. As
you read the two Delphi studies over the past few weeks, think about some of
the questions you had about the content of those studies. Were there areas in
the studies that confused you or led you into new territory that you had not
previously encountered? Did you want more information and wonder how to find
it? Did you do Internet search for words, ideas, or Delphi technique?
If you were confused by the articles, how did that make you feel?
This week, write a post using information from
the readings provided to support your thoughts, citing any sources, and
bringing in outside research of your own to help supplement our learning. In
your post:
1. Address the
difference between ontological humility and ontological arrogance.
2. Give an example of
a time in your life when you feel you experienced someone else using either
ontological humility or ontological arrogance? (Keep this anonymous by
de-identifying any people; using fake names or no names at all is always
3. Share one thing
about one of the articles that made you feel like you needed more information
or knowledge about the topic. How did that make you feel?
4. Consider a time
when an instructor, a parent, a family member, or an employer criticized your
work in a way that upset you, demoralized you, or embarrassed you. How could
you or the other person have handled the situation differently to make it a
positive one? If you have never been in such a situation, describe one where
you may have been overly critical or seen someone else in such a situation.

Ontology (my big word of the month) and Humility
This blog introduces readers to the concept of ontological
humility. The concept was penned by Fred Kofman in his 2006 text, Conscious Business. Ontological humility is the first
step to recognizing, admitting, and embracing the idea that there is more we do
not know than what we know. The more we know the more we realize how little we

wisdom. Please read through this with an open mind and realization that there
