Characteristics of Contrarian Thinking

"Contrarian thinking is characterized by these elements:
  • Conventional wisdom is not simply accepted as wisdom
  • Current practices are always scrutinized for better ways
  • The questions “why” or “why not” are frequent
  • Knowing what others are doing and why is constant
  • Multiple voices are encouraged to speak into issues
  • Risk taking and innovation are valued
  • Leveraging for maximum ministry results is the constant goal
  • Thinking grey is common"
- T.J. Addington
