☆   assumption  仮定


An assumption is an idea or belief that something is true or will happen, that you accept without real proof. For example, yesterday, I was talking about writing my business plan for my studies. In my plan, I used the acronyms, ESL, TOEFL and TOEIC throughout my plan. I made the assumption that everyone reading my business plan would know what these words meant.

It turns out that not many of my lecturers did know! So, I got in trouble for making that assumption, and then I had to go through my entire business plan and write in the meaning whenever these words appeared! That assumption cost me a lot of wasted time!

Have you made an assumption recently that ended up being wrong? What was it?
