Universal Quantifiers (Meta-Model)

Universal quantifiers are an all or nothing kind of generalization.

If someone says, “Every time I do someone a favor, it ends up biting me in the rear,” you might ask, “I wonder what it is about you that makes that happen every time, I mean, you know, since that doesn’t happen every time to anybody else.”

Your friend might come up with an insight like, “Well, you’re right, I need to quit trying to help people who are so out of control, because it spills into the lives of anybody who connects with them.” In this case, he found a universal source that gave the universal quantifier at least some truth. In this case, that could be better than finding the exceptions to his generalization.
