Wait a moment for Socrates to reply

“Before you tell me, I’d like you to pass a little test called the Triple Filter Exam?”

Socrates continued: “Before you tell me about my student, let us take a moment to filter what you are going to say.

The first filter is honesty. Are you sure what you’re going to tell me is true?”

“No,” replied the man. “Actually I’ve heard the news.

Well said Socrates, So you’re not sure whether what you’re going to tell me is right or wrong. Let’s try the second filter.

Good filter. Is what you are going to tell me about my student a good thing?”

“No, on the contrary… “Okay.”

Socrates continued, “So you’re going to tell me something bad about my student that you’re not sure is true?” the man started feeling embarrassed.

Socrates continued: “You can still pass the test, because there is a third filter interest filter. What do you tell me about him asylum, Cevedna?” “actually no”.

Socrates continued: “If you are going to tell me something that is neither true nor good nor useful or valuable, why do you tell me it at all?”
