I like contrarian thinkers — also when they’re wrong.
To always take the intellectual route less traveled is hazardous. Chances are that that road is less traveled for good reason.
From a statistical perspective, contrarian thinking is just risky.
But that’s what I love about contrarian thinkers. So, they’re exploring ways of reasoning about various challenges that are wrong sometimes. After all, everyone can’t always be wrong about everything.
As long as you they also have the strength to admit taking a wrong every so often, contrarian thinkers are by far more interesting to be around.
And, who knows, maybe some of that exciting contrarian thinking will rub off on you in the process?
