    I make all decisions/judgements based upon all that I have ever known/experienced, and whatever new info that registers as accurate...at the time.

    I'm not kidding.

    Yes always; if I don't, it doesn't give me a complete view. It's as if there's no balance.

    Anyways I like it when I PWN the other side so hard they start having to whine and throw insults at me.

    So I stopped looking regularly.
    I agree. Modern humans are drowning in a sea of words. Most of it is meaningless.

    I ALWAYS listen to opposing view points. As a teen I often argued them as well to see if they made sense. As an adult I still listen. Sometimes people on the opposite side of the spectrum can make you see things in a new way. . . or simply solidify your already solid opinion.

    I'm always open to all sides of an argument too, because I'm more interested in understanding the entire system/dynamics rather than promoting a particular view... even if I have opinions. I'm susceptible to good evidence too; even when I badly want to hold onto a point of view, I can't if someone has given me something substantial to consider. (That part is sorta frustrating. )

    As you say, considering other sides either can teach you something new or can help your current position seem more secure.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Pretty similar to my approach. I do a lot of research for college debate though, so I still read a lot about current events and politics, but I read it largely just to see if there's anything I can use for debate more than for my own purposes.

    Yeah, a vast majority of the 'news' articles I read have a TON of rhetoric/opinion with little logic or facts supporting it, so I have to use my bullshit filter a lot.

    Am I one of the few people who finds this trend of overflowing information scary?

    e.g.:
    Amusing Ourselves to Death by Stuart McMillen - cartoon Recombinant Records

    Another ISTP debator? And all these years I thought I were a mutant.

    What's your favorite to argue: Affirmative, Negative, Counter Negative?

    Play soccer too? or just like to watch? In either case what's your preferred field position?

    I read Ann Coulter.

    Yup. Interesting experience, that was.

    At this point, I'm exhausted from all the research, fact checking and attempts at integration of all the information out there.

    I wish we had incorruptable robots chronicling history and current events. I'm a lazy guy.
