Teaching to Think

I’m not a teacher: only a fellow traveler of whom you asked the way. I pointed ahead – ahead of myself as well as you.

George Bernard Shaw

This blog is called iThinkTank. It’s a play on words. It contains both the phrase I think and Think Tank. It also is supposed to mean integral Think Tank.

I see myself as an accompanyist. Most people would see me as a teacher, as a person that defines doctrine and gets you to believe it, be it math or theology.

I do not want to persuade you of anything. I want to get you to think and search on your own.

I have to tell it again and again: I have no doctrine. I only point out something. I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen. I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window. I push open the window and point outside. 

I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue. I push open the window and point outside.

Martin Buber

Do you want to make me successful? Start thinking and build your own opinion. Do you want to make me happy? Start a dialogue with me.

I am a Gallup certified Strengths Coach. Whether I am a skilled writer you can find out yourself on this blog. In addition, I am a teacher in a local church involved in church leadership.
