The healthy sceptic is not a know it all who sounds like a Richard but is balanced and assured of what is fact and what is fiction. Sceptics easily recognise the fallacious argument however clever and can smile, walk away or take the Michael. A healthy sceptic is less likely to be duped, taken for a ride, pulled for a fast one, get fooled and can avoid the embarrassment of believing in nonsense spread by the average John Doe.
