    I feel a mix of both. Somethings, like drugs, I don't feel like I need to try, even though I'm naturally curious, simply because I don't need drugs to know what addiction and substance abuse and hanging out with a bad crowd are like. I know those already, so I'm okay simulating some experiences with appropriate mixing and matching.

    Also, some experiences clearly have no benefit to me because I already understand exactly what I would have had to painstakingly derive in order to to render the whole of it unnecessary for repetition. There's no point throwing a pretty ring into a puddle of muddy water and going to look for it if it's already in my hand and I know that.

    Good for you for embracing new situations though.

    I definitely have that mindset, when it comes to a new activity, TV shows, etc. Some people are so intent on disliking things that they never even tried themselves. On one hand, you might have an idea you won't like something because you know your interests. But I get confused when someone firmly stands that they dislike something that they haven't tried themselves, or they haven't tried anything vaguely close.

    I'm reluctant to give opinions on things that I have little experience with. I do have my limits with the types of things I try, I wouldn't try something daredevilish or things that come with a risk of death, I have an idea of what genres I like with TV. But I'm generally opened to trying new things to see if I like them. There have been things I have tried out of curiosity.

    Whit Burnett did not coddle Salinger. He did not discover a literary genius sitting in the back row of his Monday class and deliver him to instant fame. Rather, he forced Jerry to work for his own success. As a mentor, Burnett may well have had every intention to publish his pupil, but as a teacher, he first demanded that his student exhaust other options

    Yes. I might hate it and be highly critical of it later, but it's at least worth trying before judging.

    Every god damn day of my life. While I am generally a theoretical person, if an opportunity presents itself to me. I indulge.

    Everything I do is inherently me, even if I don't like it or criticize myself after the fact. You are no different.
