The Power of Perspective Essay

Rory Sutherland in "Perspective is Everything" and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  in "The Danger of a Single Story" both examine the importance of perspective. Review their talks by rewatching them and/or reading the transcripts available on the TED pages. Write a four paragraph essay in which you introduce the two speakers and the theme, explain a couple of each speaker's key ideas and examples, then evaluate Sutherland and Adichie's contributions to the topic.

Here are the pages from our introduction to perspective:
