Dr. Bowen discusses the difficulties of getting beyond polarities in one's thinking. He refers to Barbara McClintock's characterization of "levelers" those who see the broad field, and "sharpeners," those who have gunbarrel vision. He maintains that people can be taught to see from a broader perspective if they work on defining self. He uses the analogy of a sports team to illustrate the importance of being an individual while working as a team.
