Are you a critical thinker?

Do you question everything? Do you answer with your own answers, or do you answer because that is how things flow? When you answer mylot questions, do you think about the question and answer with your own opinion or do you say what is 'right' or what has been taught? I think it's important that people question everything, especially oneself. A lot of people answer questions with "because it's important" but what does that mean? Is it important because your parents told you so? The T.v? The bible? or Yourself?

That's great. I have an interest in physics too... I never had much interest in it until lately. I'm glad that you have opinions too. Thanks for the reply!

Other than topics of scientific interests i don't quote anyone.It is the understanding and knowledge i have acquired over the years which helps me answer questions.If there is a good way to answer from a reliable source i don't mind taking its help.Most of my replies are formulated spontaneously without help from anyone.

That's really good! I'm glad that you have your own opinion. I still question scientific interests too.. it depends on the time of the day. Thanks for posting!
