Wendell Johnson

Psychologist and author Wendell Johnson was a proponent of General Semantics (or GS).

His book Living With Change, a collection of various pieces he wrote over many years, is a good introduction to GS.

Three Questions Johnson counselled others to solve problems by utilizing these three questions:

  • What do you mean? (Designed to clarify the situation)
  • How do you know? (Designed to ascertain the truth via evidence)
  • What then? (or: So What?) (Designed to explore implications, consequences, or alternatives)
