I enjoyed taking the political quiz to begin this exercise, however I felt that the polarity of the choices undermined the real potential of asking tough questions and may not offer the most complete political profile. Of course, the face value of a twenty-question quiz is not equal to rational, informed decision-making when choosing a political stance. Forming insightful, rational opinions is the theme of this week’s blog, and a crucial skill for forming an individual opinion. While it may seem trivial, many of us (myself included) often take headlines and statistics as fact, and base our reaction and response off of that information alone. Just as a political quiz may present “obvious” options for many questions, they may not truly be the best answers.
