Years ago when the world was young, I was a hospital chaplain. The MOST demanding part of the job was to be aware of one's preconceptions (being free of them is not an option) not letting oneself be blinded by them.

Yes!

Mulla Nasrudin went to a psychiatrist, who tested him by showing him symbols on a sheet of paper.
First there were three dots. “What do those stand for?” asked the doctor.
“Three wolves,” said the Mulla.
“And these dashes?”
“They stand for two elephants.”
“What do you make of these dots and dashes together?”
“They illustrate a herd of ponies and donkeys.”
The doctor told him:
“I am afraid that you are obsessed by animals, and we’ll have to do something about it...”
“Do something about yourself first,” said the Mulla,"for all these creatures belong to YOUR menagerie!”
from Idries Shah's The Commanding Self
