How impressionable are you?
Posted 5/16/15 , edited 5/16/15

How impressionable are you? When you see something on the news or in a journal do you accept it as true ? How often do you check sources? Do you ever do your own research?

Bonus question: How often do you change your opinion on a firmly held belief?

Whatever the media says is formed from a group of perspectives and opinions. Once you understand that, it's up to you to decide whether you agree or disagree with what they say. I'll say that I have to look into my own interests and conclude what is true to me.

But the question is whether or not the media group is biased or not. An example would be the common perspective that Fox News is conservatively biased. Just because you have a table of experts doesn't mean they are unbiased. When I read your reply I wondered why you didn't say to compare other info sources, incl. other media networks.

How impressionable are you?
Barely. If not at all.
When you see something on the news or in a journal do you accept it as true?
Depends on where I am reading/hearing from, but most times, I doubt it.
How often do you check sources?
Very often. If not all the time.
Do you ever do your own research?
Of course.
Bonus question: How often do you change your opinion on a firmly held belief?
Not very often. I usually don't have an actual opinion or belief until I feel like it's logical.

Most of the time the mainstream media is biased and full of shit and likes to twist things around to make it sound bad (sometimes good, if it's something bad.) And then a lot of people like to eat it up & take whatever they hear for granted because it sounds like something they wanna hear.

I'm pretty impressionable when it comes to health and science. When it comes to cars and money I'm a stick in the mud.

I would say I'm very impressionable. I'm young with limited knowledge so that's just how it goes.

I usually believe the media when it comes to what has happened around the world but everything else is questionable. I only check sources or do my own research when I care enough and feel like I need to which is rarely.

When you see something on the news or in a journal do you accept it as true?
I see it as an update to whats going on in the world, but mostly an opinion of what happening in the situation
How often do you check sources?
occasionally if its general world news, so i can get a general idea of whats happening. I check local news often. I check news that is interesting to me often as well, such as convention news, anime news, or whats happening in the Music industry with the bands that I like.
Do you ever do your own research?
Only when the Topic is interesting enough, or involves me.
Bonus question: How often do you change your opinion on a firmly held belief?
I usually stand strong on my own opinion, unless a fact comes by that obviously makes it so that my opinion is completely incorrect, and a right answer as appeared.
