Having the gift of being an empath is great for nursing. Patients have that wonderful edge on their care and don’t even know it lol. I agree groupthink today is pretty scary. I watching the news yesterday and this lady was basically telling people there was something wrong with them for having healthy skepticism and using their own brains to make a decision on a story someone is telling them. Your diagnosis is spot on. It’s a cult like behavior and people tend to engage in this freedom infringing activity.
