skeptic - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
There are good and bad ways to act as a skeptic, done right it's a social service against paranoia and delusion, done wrong it's clubbing seals.
The "rule of ten" says that if the first nine agree, then it is the duty of the tenth to act as the skeptic regardless of their own opinion.
Being a skeptic is not a personality but a gear, a mode, that can switch on or off depending on if the situation requires it. For the loving hearts we switch it off, when we have an intuition that truth as been departed from we switch it on. Anyone who is always a skeptic is as damaged as the rose-tinted glass brigade. Balance, grasshopper, always balance.
