    It is unsound to be right but wrong to feel one is wrong. In other words doubt when it is not obsessive/clinical self doubt, can be unsettling. In a similar way the trump judges and certain dharmaists are little more than self amusers ...

    To be independent of our opinions, that is a sound mind ... (IMHO) o:)
