Story About an Old Friend, an Older Philosopher and Some Juicy Gossip

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Life Issues, Podcasts 1 Comment

This week’s Surrounded by Idiots Radio Podcast episode is about gossip…

…it’s about how I found myself in the middle of a story with an old friend of mine, talking trash about a mutual friend

…when all of a sudden, I remembered an old story about Socrates and how to tell if a piece of gossip should be shared or kept to myself.

The story is called, “The Triple Filter” and it’s about one of Socrates’ friends beginning to share some juicy gossip with him, until…

…Socrates stopped the conversation and told his friend about three very important filters that can help to determine whether you should share a piece of gossip or not.

Sadly, by the time I remembered the story, it was too late…

…I had shared a piece of gossip that would have FAILED the Triple Filter Test.

So, I figured I’d share this little story with you to help you when it comes to deciding whether to share or not.

Let me know what you think …
