Along with jealousy, everyone is hard wired from birth to be gullible and trust other people.  This is the reason nonsense like religion flourishes, but is also the reason we enjoy movies and books.

Those that are gullible will enjoy movies and video games more, as they are able to believe and immerse themselves in what they see.  

The less gullible are less likely to be conned, but they also tend to be less social.

Where do you think you stand and why?

Personally, I am not very gullible.  I don't enjoy reading fiction books and I inherently do not trust other people.

Note:  Do to the nature of this forum, those admitting they are gullible may find themselves targeted by scammers.  Be careful!

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Everyone is gullible to some degree - it's necessary for imagination.

It's necessary for survival. Children instinctively believe anything an adult tells them, which is helpful when they're told why they shouldn't play in traffic, but less helpful when they're told that they were created by an invisible genocidal psychopath who will torture them without end if they don't do exactly what He wants, and that He wants them not to question anything. Of course, gullibility declines with age, so once such an idea is implanted in a child's brain, it's almost impossible to remove in adulthood.

I do enjoy books, movies, etc.

But, for the most part, I am not very gullible. I prefer to check facts on things.
When I get those silly forwarded emails, I check the facts and send the correct information back to the person that was stupid enough to forward it to me. I hate it when people mindlessly forward/re-post things without checking the facts. At the very least google it before you keep spreading the nonsense.

Yes to some degree im gullible. Just like when the person i love the most say things that he wants me to do, ill follow and do it. Also in some movies like korean, im really gullible in believing that the actors are really like a superhero. 😂

It's hard for me to learn to trust people. In childhood it was much easier and more interesting. Now the films do not cause any special emotions, only criticize the actors' play and the work of the directors.

I agree to some degree we are all gullible and this is quite necessary to live a normal life. Yes, we can question everything and refuse to believe in anything but it is not absolute because somewhere and somehow we have to believe just because we have to. And when it comes to online programs, I have been a victim of many scams so am therefore an online gullible LOL. Smiley

I trust, but I check. By trusting people, we let them know that we rely on them and they are trying to justify this trust. If we do not trust people, they will not feel that they need us and a wall of mistrust may arise.

Not much, this is one of the reasons I am unable to watch most movies or shows nowadays, I give them a chance but as soon I find a error in the narrative I’m unable to keep watching, also I dislike the abuse of special effects in movies so while some are impressed by the special effects, I’m like, I know the actor is in front of a green screen faking all of that.

I don't trust anyone. All people are deceiving others. Just some lies does not bring harm to people, some very dangerous. Religion is a dangerous lie because it is aimed at gaining power over man, and it is dangerous to others.

Totally not gullible. If I won that USD $2 million like that other thread says, I'd never believe it.

It's funny that you have thought about that note, maybe they are going to be really targeted lol.  Grin Cheesy

It depends on what situation is happening, in real life, I'm not that socially well off, but I know how to adjust to certain people and know what is going to do when something happens. I don't get myself to be stupid enough to be also mocked. It just knows what will come next that helps.

In movies, it helps to be a part of it, like what you said, immerse yourself into their shoe, that's an excellent way to show that you have empathy or care about the movie. That's my say on it.

Hey hey hey that's not true. Some of us went to these cults until our parents said we could make our own choices and we never went back! All that stuck was "Thank god..." and "Bless you" when someone sneezes. Which at this point in humanity is just politeness. Once you figure out your parents lied to you about the Easter Bunny, Santa and the Tooth fairy it's fairly obvious that the magic spaghetti monster in the sky isn't something you actually need to worry about. The problem where I live is that the older generation thinks that if you go to cult church you're a good person. If you don't go you're a bad person. It's actually hilarious when these horrible people go to cult church every Sunday but they're overall the worst people out there.

How gullible am I? Over time, with the invention of the internet I've become way less gullible. I question everything and everyone online. Especially on this forum because everyone is trying to make a bitcent. I've also learned from bitcoins that just because your computer system seems secure because no one has hacked your useless email or facebook doesn't mean that they won't steal your bitcoins as soon as you have a balance. I trust absolutely no one with my bitcoins which is the best part about them, I never have to.
