    Default does anyone else have this type of mindset

    I always think to myself that I have to try something before I judge it. I'll do things that aren't even "me" to get a perspective of things, for example I have always had a negative view of drugs and mind altering substances but I wanted to try them just to see what all these other people were feeling. I do a lot of bad stuff just to get the perspective of another person.

    Yes. I do this with books, movies, music, food and stuff like that. I mean, how do you know if you like or don't like something when you haven't tried it?

    And don't you know that drugs are bad, mkay? I like to be in control of my own behaviour. I better not don't need to experiment with drugs to find out that I like them won't like them.

    Well not necessarily just other people's views but just also to know for yourself. I want to know. Curiousity.

    Curiousity is what killed the cat...
    ...but satisfaction is what brought him back.

    No, because I can look at others and learn from their mistakes. Some things are not worth the risks either. I have moral boundaries as well.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Curiousity is one of the driving forces of my life. While I value my inquisitive nature quite highly, it has led me into some morally dubious situations in the past. I'm generally quite a cautious person, but sometimes I just throw caution to the wind and leap into something wholeheartedly.

    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,

    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    Yes, I do this as well. I will try almost anything once.

    Please tell me you've never killed anyone.

    So far, I haven't been inclined to think that way. I might have felt like doing something just to get a perspective on things, but the rational side usually stops me. I really hate the rational side sometimes.
