Think Different, Think Unique, Be Right When Others Are Wrong

Think Different, Think Unique, Be Right When Others Are Wrong

Characteristics of Independent-Minded People

Characteristics of Independent-Minded People

  • Contrarian nature.
  • Display an amusement in denying conventional wisdom.
  • Relentless fact-checking.
  • Have a desire to determine the truth.
  • Curiosity.
  • Novel ideas that drive progress.

These characteristics need not be possessed in equal measure. Also, don't hold an extreme belief in any specific truth. Believing conspiracies is worse than being convinced by orthodox beliefs.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
