Why You’re NOT “Skeptical”!

Skepticism says: “I don’t know. Let’s look at the evidence.” πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Cynicism says: “I don’t know, but it’s probably bad so let’s only find evidence confirming that.” 😑

Skepticism is impartial, unbiased. It wants the objective truth, regardless of one’s personal beliefs about others and the world. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Cynicism is biased towards negativity. It only wants information that supports its negative bias. 😑

🌟 What some people mistake for “skepticism” is actually cynicism under the guise of skepticism. 🌟

One example of cynicism is conspiracy theories. While detractors will claim they are being “skeptical”, their reasoning consistently points to cynical thinking instead. 😱

So the next time you’re in a situation trying to understand the bigger picture, be sure to separate your biases from the facts themselves. ↔️

Otherwise, you’re actually seeing the situation through a narrow emotional lens. πŸ‘€ ❀️
