I think that if we didn't have words and terms for these things, we would still make intuitive distinctions based on our feelings and self-perceptions, compared to our perceptions of where others are coming from.
That is all true - but the hard part is to recognize that for what it is and to establish a frame of mind that allows for other perceptions instead of summarily dismissing things because that don't match our initial perceptions of truth to us.
