"As a Learner, you're smart enough to know better, yet you're still not fully informed about reality. Around 15% of the population are Learners. You have the critical thinking skills to be a truly free individual, but you haven't exercised them enough yet... You are essentially unplugged, but still untrained. With more knowledge, you could become a true free thinker. ... You have always been an independent thinker. ... Increasingly, you shape your own world by deciding what actions to take based on your own internal drive rather than what society tells you is right." - http://www.newstarget.com/gullibility.asp
