    Seems to me i do this more and more often, the result is given two options neither win, which can be both annoying and boring.
    Do you have inner battles what tips the balance?

    Yes. I have debates with myself all the time, where i come to look for the best conclusion, if that's what you mean. Often, I have "debates" with the book I'm reading as well. I think, "in context x, is what this guy is saying true?" "What about this scenario?" "Is this even accurate?" Unfortunately, this often distracts from the reading.

    The pessimist would say he's always wrong.

    I often have a battle with how to go about learning a new subject. I'm still trying to find that balanced method, but maybe I'll never find one. I don't know.

    Not you, according to my observations.
