19. Philosopher

one of the philosophers powerful tools is being able to see the unexpected consequences of stretching an idea to its limits.

This has two benefits.

  1. it can reveal flaws in the original idea, by reductio ad absurdum
  2. this can help you recognize the fundamental principles behind your vague intuitions of things. 

By exposing your ideas to stronger, hypothetical critiques, you can see the real mechanisms by which they work.
