      10 Signs of intellectual honesty

      I want to put this out here because it might be useful. This is something many person striving to be rational will benefit from.


      Spoiler for 10 Signs of intellectual honesty:


      I especially like the first 4. I have been watching some debates on religion because I was curious about how people can defend nonsense. Not just religious speakers, and it's not always intentional, but people all over the place do it, sublty or blatantly and shamelessly, or without knowing. Smart and unjust lawyers can keep criminals out of jail and smart and unjust prosecutors can put innocent people in jail by talking in certain ways and emphasizing certain things, downplaying certain things. By watching these debates I picked up on it and I got much more sensitive to flaws in rationality in every area in my life. It at least irritates me and sometimes pisses me off when people do this. Even if it's unintentional.

      This was copied and pasted from this article. Thanks a bunch to the person that wrote this!

      Definitely useful!!

      1,2,3,4, and 8 are very important for me to work on. At least I'm proud I'm trying to be true. Religious ppl often accuse us of being untrue, but it's truly the other way around. How ironic.

      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      I wish you good luck my friend = ) 1 Very helpful thing I found out is this: it's not useful to blame myself or shit on myself (figuratively) for not doing something rational while knowing I am being irrational. I just look at what I am doing, what the consequences are, what I could possibly do, what the consequences of those different actions would be, how best to think about things. But when I say "I really need to/should do/ x", it ruins my mood. Also, knowing what's the best thing doesn't immedietely transform me, it happens gradually if I know at least in the back of my mind what is the right thing to do. So feeling bad about my irrationality is almost never helpful

      Also, writing/typing it down is extremely useful, don't underestimate this!! Having to keep it in mind distracts me and makes me unable to think of anything else. Even when I am on the same train of thought, I type things on my phone 1 by 1, so that I don't have to keep it in mind and it allows me to think clearly and creatively about the next step.
