When you ask a question are you more likely seeking knowledge or hoping to shift opinions?
To me the greatest thing about a convo. is what you learned from it. #2 is what you taught others. There is always something to learn and teach. I love to learn, just didn't sit still long enough in school.
No, I like unbiased questions.
Can a poll attempting to change opinion also be unbiased?
Doc, what's with the homeless slogan?
I am an MD focused on health education, trying to influence a nation focused on junk food and junk. SOH excepted, I do not feel at home many places.
It's often a way to show off something new I've learned, but it's also a way to gather opinions about it. And to learn even more on the subject from the comments. If I ask one I don't care about, I'm probably just testing something.
Both really. I usually just want opinions. But I've been taught a few things on SOH after I've done some research myself. I haven't tried to sway someone to my beliefs unless they have a bigoted view or uneducated view based on media propaganda
Feel the same, however the harsh comments we occasionally see leave me with the thought that anything said contrary to their view is wasted words.
Honestly, I mix poll questions between the two goals. It is a privilege to have followers. I hope you find my questions stimulating and on point.
I do, thank you!
I just want to see where others stand on the issues presented.
I really appreciate the structure of SoH, in the discussion. But, last week there was an NRA question where the vote was over 70% anti, but the discussion was 60% pro. Nice disconnect sometimes. Caused me to say something about "being the noisiest"
Perhaps we will be trusted enough by 2016 to elect the POTUS
Most of the time gauge public opinion an maybe convince some people to shift.
