I also ask people to explain themselves. It must be something I learned while in law school. Yesterday, my mother said that I was gullible after I said that I felt cynical about love. So I asked her how I can be gullible and cynical at the same time when they are opposites. Then I realized that I can be gullible because I have not experienced a lot of things, but I can be cynical at the same time because I have read a lot about the bad things in love.
