comment Is developing an insight for someone the same as accepting them?
Well, it's just that I needed a word that I can use in a sentence where I say, "Person 1's ability to develop [insight, or a similar word] (into his son) and person 2's failure to develop [same word], which is needed for person 2 to learn from his mistakes, results in..." ...If that makes any sense. Basically, something you need in order to accept someone AND to be able to learn from your mistakes. Insight was the only thing I could come up with.

@cbbcbail Even if the grammar is fine, would you say the usage is incorrect (based on the context)?

comment Is developing an insight for someone the same as accepting them?
Is it possible to "develop (an) insight for/into a situation"? (again, using 'insight' is confusing me, and I'm not sure if it's better with the an or without...) i.e. what would be the proper or common usage of insight when it's for a "thing"? (The capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing.)

comment What is the appropriate usage of “attentions”?
The only reason I'm considering "attentions" is because it could also mean "affections", which is not necessarily given with attention. But thank you for confirming that this would be inappropriate usage.
