- More likely to be non-judgmental,
- Better able to evaluate evidence,
- Less likely to ‘flip-flop’ on political issues.
Professor Leary said the personality trait of Intellectual Humility is valuable: “Not being afraid of being wrong—that’s a value, and I think it is a value we could promote.” More tomorrow.
