And would "naive" fall under the same category as "gullible?"

If so, how would someone overcome naivety or gullibility or even any perceived flaws they might in themselves or in someone else see?

Is it all derived from insecurities? Scrutinies from the internal or external? Is this an occams razor mentality which requires simply nothing more than "positive thinking" or is there more to defeating these neural patterns than meets the eye?

I would suggest to such a person that he/she avail him- or herself of more than one viewpoint or perspective on things.

Thread: The Black Box Concept


Say a car accident occurs at an intersection of a small town. A reporter with a camera is on one corner, a pedestrian waiting to cross is on the opposite corner. They see two different angles of the same event--and when the police arrive to take down notes on what was witnessed, the account from the reporter, who took a photo, and from the pedestrian, will bear similarities, but also offer differences. Maybe one saw who pulled out first, and provides the crucial piece necessary to say who is at fault. Of course, those in the wreck will have their own view, too. The more sides known, the better. Being naive is like thinking only one person will know everything about something, and thinknig that there is no need to look further, to verify.

In a broad sense, I don't think naive or gullible means weak minded

If anything, it simply a matter of trusting (without verifying) too much
