use the facts not your interpretation of them

Love this article in Scientific American by psychology doctoral candidate who finds of interest in the Sherlock Holmes stories. Maria has written  number of articles, I like this one on how our interpretation of a situation changes it.  http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2011/10/04/lessons-from-sherlock-holmes-trust-in-the-facts-not-your-version-of-them/

"Often, our mind conflates the world and our own interpretation of it without much thought. We simply assume that the way we see is the way it is."
