The first thing about critical thinking (short note)

If anyone tells you any story that tugs on your heartstrings, stop and think. Your kneejerk reaction is probably wrong. Too many times they ask you to go along with your kneejerk response, the one that they want, and will berate you if you refuse. When they do this it's your choice which window you throw them out of, but if they won't let you stop and think, FORCE them to let you stop and think, and use as much force as it takes. If they get offended they weren't your friend. They were trying to use you.
