    candel The Triple Filter test

    The Triple Filter test
    In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in
    high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher
    and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

    "Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me
    anything, I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the
    Triple Filter Test."

    "Triple filter?"

    "That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about
    my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what
    you're going to say. That's why I call it the triple filter test.
    The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what
    you are about to tell me is true?"

    "No," the man said, "Actually I just heard about it and..."

    "All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's
    true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of
    goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend
    something good?"

    "No, on the contrary..."

    "So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something bad
    about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass
    the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter of
    usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to
    be useful to me?"

    "No, not really."

    "Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is
    neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
