Published weekday mornings as the coffee brews
A = philosophy major
In politics, it's called a "flip-flop" or "U turn" and roundly condemned, even when there has been a change in circumstances prompting the change of opinion.
A = normal college experience
A = democrats! ha ha!
A = people we need more of
A = endearingly scatty professor.
A = easily persuadedA = informed voter/consumerA = Me
A = how science (should) work[s]
I was going to say 'Objective'.But what anonymous (above) said is far better. So, umm... I'm changing my mind.
im gonna say thatA = Human 2.0 :D
A = scholarlyEverything else in the strip is an adjective, so it makes sense to use one here. The strip perfectly describes what it is to be a scholar: learn lots of stuff, and go where that learning takes you. The term is broad enough to encompass science, philosophy, religion, politics, and most of the other good answers you'll get.
My wife's contribution: the true point of wisdom should be somewhere between "A" and "dogmatic". Point A is "delusional".You should SOMETIMES change your mind when you learn new things, but other times, you should learn something new that merely confirms your previous understanding.If you change your mind every single time you learn something new, it means your past knowledge has zero predictive value. That means either the universe is inherently unpredictable (and you're delusional for thinking you can predict it / "learn" anything) or your "learning" doesn't match reality (and you're delusional for it.)
'A' sure is leading an exciting life. But in order to be wise, 'A' would need to be in each of those other 3 shoes at different points in life.However, being wise isn't all that important I guess! :)
A = science
A = DIY brain transplant
Trying to live by A, not sure that I always succeed. Is it wise? I don't know. It seems to be the best way to make some sort of sense in a very confusing world. (Where every way to knowledge in itself requires knowledge to make sense.)
you need a third axis. The center is rational neutrality. In one direction, it moves from rationally religious all the way to cultish mysticism. On another side, it moves from secular rationalism all the way out to android.
A = educationI've linked to this one through our urban experiential learning project's blog - thanks for the inspiration as always!
A = Pragmatic
A = first year in college
A = Tao
Agreeing with lotharbot - someone truly wise wouldn't change their mind just because they learned something new, though it's certainly part of the equation.A could also be called flighty.
scriblurgh takes the cake for sure
A = victim of mediaI ADORE your cards!!
im starting to think scriblurgh was on the money. lol
A = gulliblelotharbot gave the reasoning
scriblurgh or janka win this one for sure
I would say "teachable", but if you switch cause and effect around, it would be "massive rationalization".
wisdom is once you recognize that you are at point "A" ...
I'd sayA= Adolescence -or-Spends too much time on Wikipedia.sorry for the lack of funniness in my suggestions.
A = nutritional scientistLet's see, are eggs good or bad for me this week?
The problem I'm having with this particular card, is that dogmatic people do not tend to learn more...even if they are exposed to new things. They keep on blinders.If the line on the bottom, then, were changed to something like "exposure to different perspectives" then dogmatic would fit better, flighty would be particularly interesting (changing without such exposure...pretty flighty indeed) and A might be more likely to be wise, though it would depend, wouldn't it?
Blushing...mind you, I really do like this form of art, Jessica, and truly did not mean to only write a critique.Doh.
