Over-Skepticism?
Excessive skepticism just as dangerous as gullibility?

I'm not sure "dangerous" is the right word... but I agree overall.

It's foolish to believe EVERYTHING you are told, but it's just as foolish to believe NOTHING you are told. Part of what has made the human race so successful is our ability to communicate and build off of each other's learning.

Re: Over-Skepticism?
being skeptic is a logical and objective approach with supporting information at hand
but
being gullible means, that even if you have not these supporting informations (which are all around you, but it was your choice to not look at it), you still promote your version

be aware, for both are vital & needed & you will find many examples where they mix together
