  • yes otherwise how can you make an informed decision?

  • Yes, and I normally look for the information counter to my opinion first. That way it is less easy to rule it out as I am reading it.

  • Depends on what I'm researching and why. I may be trying to figure out why another person sees it their way. I'm not right all the time. :)

  • I go for both but in the end, I try to find other opinions & facts that prove my point.

  • No, I look for what research there is, follow connections (read articles cited in other articles for example), and consider sources and funding. I do often find that I change my opinion, but more often than that I simply find that it isn't a simple black-and-white issue and there really isn't an agree or disagree so much as a need to think about a lot of factors.

  • Yes but I also try to avoid propaganda concerning the issues I'm researching. It's not always easy to find information that's truth rather than opinion.

  • I sure do. How else could you possibly come to an informed decision without BOTH sides of any arguement??
