Different peoples, in different countries, with different religions, and different education systems, perceive the world in ways that are different from you or I. How we perceive the world defines our view of reality.
Our opinions are formed by the way we perceive the world. Opinions, unlike perceptions, can be shared, and the sharing of opinions, between like-minded people, forms and shapes the the way that the group collectively interprets the world around it.
Reporting is often biased by the way in which the reporter sees the world. Information can be filtered according to any inherent bias, leading to different interpretations of a situation, and different interpretations of truth by a reader.
In making sense of what is going on in the world, an Extrinsic analyst must be able to do three things: they must be aware of their own perception biases, and make allowances for them; they must be able to ignore the "preferred" outcome of the analysis; and they must be able to consider likely courses of action from the point of view of the target of the analysis.
By inclination, training, and profession we look for patterns in the available information to establish the most probable "truth" from a number of plausible "truths". In doing this we are professionally unconstrained by any particular scientific or engineering discipline, any school of business theory, any political views, or any religious beliefs.
In short we are apolitical, agnostic, generalists who study the interconnectedness of the world. We provide you with information that allows you to understand how information may be seen differently by different people.
