Your search for the truth
As a theorist, it is important to remember that you are in search of the truth; it is easy to assume everything is a conspiracy. However, the challenge lies in differentiating between conspiracies and just stupid things happening. Remember: you are in search of the truth.
Patience is a virtue
It is also important for theorists to be patient. Not all information is released immediately, and sometimes the information that you do not know can change your opinion. It is OK to “not know”. You are not obligated to have a solid opinion on any subject, you may simply be in the “gray area”. Just be patient.
Stay on topic
When sharing your theories with others (especially non-theorists), you must stay on topic and not use one conspiracy as proof for another. While the person you’re talking to may agree with one of your theories, they may not believe it ties to another event. Your suspicion does not make it so; you must provide irrefutable proof!
Most important advice
One last piece of advice for theorists: do not make assumptions or allegations without proof. You may have “suspicions”, you may have “ideas”, or even “theories”, but these are not reality, they’re just possibilities. Unless you have hard evidence to prove a claim, you should not preach it as reality. FIND PROOF.
Also remember to check the validity of the proof you have – ensure it is not garbage before you use it.
All of these pieces of advice tie in together. I often see conspiracy theorists make assumptions based on no proof as soon as a story hits the news. Though they are right in that the mainstream media is lying to them, they are not patient enough to figure out what happened. Then they end up making allegations without proof because they were not patient enough to search for the truth.
