I think it is safe to say that we have all been exposed to enough compulsive liars who never stop their lying that we have a reasonable scepticism about... well, everything. From news to personal reflections, we have a tendency to doubt everything.
The good news is, critical thinking is super-duper important and it's not actually a bad thing to look at information presented to you with a critical stance to determine fact from fiction! Yay, you! Look at you go, using your big-brain!
Where's the problem, you're wondering? Well, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction and our obsessive desire to find that everyone is blatantly lying just might lead us to miss out on some wild rides.
