have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

Truth always rests with the minority,
and the minority is always stronger than the majority,
because the minority is generally formed by those

(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard

However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
