The problem of being friendly with dumb people (Public Board)

It's a problem.

When I was parrying with the clueless individual I realized what a waste of time it was. Essentially I was arguing with an idiot. I wound up deleting all of the discussion and then hiding the post from just him so it would just vanish to him. FB has a visibility control: "All friends except (list names)."

See my new thread on the topic here where I analyze the guy.

I identified one type of signature mode of thinking: the person believes in institutions and is basically a collectivist by life experience.

I believe there are other contributing traits to being a leftard: narcissism for a big one.

I think you have this guy a bit wrong. I really don't read him as a narcissist and I've engaged him at length. I read him more simply as someone who believes that the crowd has wisdom. IE: he's perpetually in search of discussion with someone in order to understand something. In part that's just a social need. But IMO it's quite mistaken to defer your instincts and reasoning to the crowd. He does so willingly and believes it's his duty to listen to "all of these distinguished people who hate Trump so therefore they must have a common valid understanding."

The guy thinks life is like Oxford University with all-knowing sages being common. Life is really more like a bunch of dropouts starting a diesel mechanic school and then teaching brain surgery.
