Because I still believe that I'm fundamentally right, that the world would work better if people didn't pretend to be certain when they're not certain, and becoming another person who pretends they're certain doesn't make the problem any better.

That makes sense, but you need to remember that lots of people do do certainty far more than you and not be intimidated into believe that they must therefore be right!

Perhaps you are also too uncertain, which has its own flaws. It would be good if our certainty about our correctness was actually proportionate to our correctness, but it isn't. There are some people who have lots of self-confidence and so tend to be more certain of their correctness than the facts warrant whilst others of us lack self-confidence and so tend to be less certain of our correctness than the facts warrant. This results in a very doomed situation is the less confident people are actually the ones who are more right!

My Dad always says that with any of this three sisters, their certainty about any given fact is inversely correlated with the correctness of said fact :-)
