What constitutes objective truth? FBI crime statistics? Your own eyes? Someone else's reported experiences? Your own emotions?I feel superior because I value different perspectives and am aware of my personal biases, because I think self improvement should be an ongoing thing throughout life, because I want to look beyond my personal circumstances and look beyond my own experiences to guide my future thoughts and actions. I feel superior because I doubt sources and search for facts, rather than accepting opinions handed to me on a silver platter. In my view, my "knowing facts" is not accidental. It's intentional.
I know there are people who don't live with the intent to pursue the objective truth.
