The Golden Rule v. The Platinum Rule

We've all heard of the Golden Rule, right? You know- "Treat others the way you want to be treated." And while there is wisdom in that, it might not be the best rule to follow all the time. The Platinum Rule ("Treat others the way they want to be treated") asks us to exercise empathy, curiosity, and compassion. It requires us to use our imagination to determine how other people want to be treated (or better yet, we can just ask them how they want to be treated)!

Check out this infographic on the differences between the Golden Rule and the (lesser known) Platinum Rule. Save and share this to spread the wisdom!
