Like how many times have you gotten into a discussion or debate with someone of opposing political views, and they provided sufficient evidence to change your views?
Note to mods: I'm putting this to "other" instead of "society and politics" because I want to get a more representative sample.
- none because i don't have political conversationsVote A
- none because although i have political conversations, i'm adamant about my viewsVote B
- once or twice, i've been influenced to change my viewsVote C
- 3-5 timesVote D
- 6-9 timesVote E
- 10-20 timesVote F
- more than 20 timesVote G

I didn't vote. It's rare that a person says anything valid. However I usually take what people say and do my own research and I end up learning new shit. I have become basically a "centrist." I used to be more left. Though I haven't relinquished any of my left views, I now see that there's good stuff on the right and that left and right isn't all there is. I've learned there is a shit ton of extreme depth to just about every area of politics you can imagine and that the overwhelming majority of people choose their beliefs, and they stop learning the instant they find the answer they wanted. I rarely debate with anyone anymore because to me it's a waste of time. Instead I'll just go to whatever forum or chat or w/e and ask questions, get people's crazy and retarded views, research them myself, and come out of it having learned a lot. But if I don't talk to people and I don't ask questions I don't get pointed to all these different things so unfortunately I stil have to do it lol.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I have changed my views when someone has made an argument that really made sense to me. But all too often, political views are very opinion based. Most of the time someone who disagrees with you is basing their views on something that you think is totally bogus.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
