Teaching people what to think is selfish.
Teaching people how to think is selfless.
One is centered on the need to be needed, while the other pivots on the desire to be of service.
One says the best way to proceed is to listen to and believe me, and the other says the best way to progress is to listen to and trust yourself.
One is based on fear and scarcity, while the other is driven by love and abundance.
People who teach people what to think, most likely do so because they were taught what to think too.
However, teaching people how to think naturally spreads as the behavior is modeled, which positions you as a catalyst to create more thinkers.
