Claims emailed to me, probably true claims at that

Summary:
Un-convinceable people are frustrating to talk to. But being around only convinceable people, you just end up at the average belief. Having a diverse variety of unconvinceable people to sample from (and move away from when it gets to be too much), and a group of convinceable people with whom to hash out the ideas and find the best versions, seems like the ideal. I think I gravitate too much to the convinceable, finding the nonconvinceable too annoying except in very small doses. The post Claims emailed to me, probably true claims at that appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.
