In this episode we discuss:
- The Limitless character quality of independent thinking in a fascinating historical context.
- Being an arbitrary contrarian and playing the devil’s advocate.
- Nootropics and addiction, sex, social situations, confidence, and budget.
Limitless character quality: Questioning the status quo, playing the devil’s advocate, and being an arbitrary contrarian.
Quote from Nina Von Stauffenberg: “…one of his characteristics was that he really enjoyed playing the devil’s advocate. Conservatives were convinced that he was a ferocious Nazi, and ferocious Nazis were convinced he was an unreconstructed conservative. He was neither.”
What is a contrarian: A contrarian is a person who takes up a position opposed to that of the majority, no matter how unpopular. Contrarian styles of argument and disagreement have historically been associated with radicalism and dissent.
My challenge to you: Next time you find yourself in a group with a clear ideologically leaning, be arbitrarily contrarian.
