On opinions

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 29, 2010

Robin Hanson lists 20 reasons why your opinions “function more to signal loyalty and ability than to estimate truth”.

2. You have little interest in getting clear on what exactly is the position being argued.
9. You find it easy to conclude that those who disagree with you are insincere or stupid.
16. Your opinion doesn’t much change after talking with smart folks who know more.
