# Resonance as a Charge Stabilization Factor?

To find out in which conjugate base is charge most stabilized by using resonance diagrams, do we draw only significant resonance diagrams or all possible resonance diagrams?

If something is not significant then you can leave it away without changing the result. That is the definition of significance, isn't it?
