Even though one could think that self-completion and inner growth are one and the same, they are not necessarily.

When dealing with an unfriendly situation or person, staying neutral allows you to keep an open mind, and will lead you to uncover things about the situation or person and also about yourself that you would have not otherwise seen.

Judgment is a tricky one because sometimes it closes us off to evaluating alternative insights on a specific person or situation.

You also allow for external inputs to have some voice and add to your insights instead of being closed off to them from the start.
