    Chuck thanks so much for your article. I was in search of answers about how to handle a controlling mate and in fairness begin to look-up my behavior (gullible), and stumbled on the readers response to your article. I am so enlightened. I wear my heart on my sleeve a lot. Your article gave me a new undertanding on why its a vicious cycle. If my heart is on my sleeve then my brain is dormant. Because I always go heart first. But your article put in to view for me the hibernation of all who, for what ever reason, refuse or reject seeking truth. Most times in relationships of any kind I give people the benefit of a doubt. When mother always said “call a spade a spade”.I sometimes failed to except the truth when its right in my face. Because I’ve done that most of my life, I can’t always recognize what it is and the exact emotion I’m feeling. Truth elodes me sometimes because I’ve sometimes ignored it, until it caved in like a roof of a tent full of water. Thanks so much the good reads you’ve recommended. I’ll start my truth journey with my bible and those three books.

    To the contrary. From where I stand, religious faith appears to be the reason for most of the gullibility. Too many blindly believe what they are told by religious believers, rather than think for themselves.
