How Your Opinions Are Formed Without Your Consent

There are two opposite methods of forming an opinion and most of us use both, but with a strong leaning one way or the other. The most common method, the ‘natural’ method if you like, is when we use what we see, hear and feel. Those who use only their senses are at one end and we could reasonably call this a ‘senser’ one who uses his or her five senses almost exclusively and generally accepts the validity of the ‘sixth sense’ or intuition.
The second common method is the attention to facts variety, one who will only look at proven facts, established and repeatable evidence and has no room for opinions on any subject that cannot be substantiated with evidence. We would reasonably call this person a ‘rationalist’.
Most people are in the middle, leaning one way or the other.
