[Excerpt from NWM: Blind Spots of Attitude ]
The Skeptic, basically, sees life as if it to be inherently questioned and disproven.
Put another way, the Skeptic sees life as something to Investigate.
When the Skeptic is in the Positive Pole, the Skeptic is comfortable questioning assumptions, patient in his or her search and research for answers, and does not experience this constant questioning as anything more than a means to learn, understand, and build insights.
The effort to disprove is not an effort to tear down, but to ensure that there is strength in the proof.
The questioning is a means to flesh out meaning and depth, not to strip of value and integrity.
The reason the emphasis is on disproof over proof is because there are far more claims in life than there are lack of claims.
When the Skeptic falls into SUSPICION, he or she does not stop questioning or disproving, but does so from the premise that there are inherent and intentional deceit and hidden truths involved.
The Blind Spot of the Skeptic, then, is DISSATISFACTION.
This is a sense that nothing can truly satisfy the questions, the doubt, the investigation, and leaves the individual locked in Suspicion.
The Skeptic can find that this Dissatisfaction is sensible and then continue in Suspicion, never truly learning or expanding in insight, but cycling through layers and layers of presumed deceit and lies and misinformation.
This is another of the Attitudes that often has to learn that it is okay to be wrong, or that lack of solid validation and empirical evidence does not imply deceit.
