I am one of those people that has very specific views and opinions. But it's worse than that. I find myself thinking that anyone who disagrees with me on most subjects is either stupid or ignorant.
I'm sure that's a really bad way to think, but I can't really help it. I chalk it up to that fact that my opinions and beliefs are so strong. AND that it's a family trait. Bad genes I guess (or good, depends on how you look at it).
Let me give you some examples:
- Politics - although, to be fair, most people who have strong political feelings think that people who don't think as they do are stupid.
- How to raise children - Yes...I KNOW I don't have kids, but that doesn't mean that I don't have to deal with the fall-out of terrible parenting on a daily basis as a teacher.
- Religious beliefs - I believe what I believe because I believe it's right...so there!
