Blind certainty from This is Water - David Foster Wallace
Blind certainty - a close-mindedness that amounts to an imprisonment so total that the prisoner doesn't even know he's locked up. The point here is that I think this is one part of what "teaching me how to think" is really supposed to mean. To be just a little less arrogant, to have just a little critical awareness about myself and my certainties. Because a huge percentage of the stuff that I tend to be automatically certain of is it turns out totally wrong and diluted.
