Sometimes insights are so subtle that people don’t realize the power contained in the information because of the subtlety. Even when they share it with someone, they still may not realize the full impact they have experienced.

Even when they come from understanding, they still may not get how powerful and transformative the change in their behavior is. It’s like their intellect hasn’t caught up with the difference in their internal workings.
