Have you tried keeping your thoughts to yourself?

Doing it on a regular. Only thing is that I won't succeed each and every time. Lol.

Plenty of times.

Of course. Some people aren't open to receiving different ideas or answers. Sometimes you do it just to be polite.
A good, and humorous example I think is worth bringing up was, I forget where I was or how I got into this conversation, but I met a woman who believed there were only 6 continents. I tried to correct her, and she told me, "Well, I don't believe Antarctica counts as a continent because it's just a block of ice." I tried to tell her it IS a continent, again, there are 7, but she told me that was just my opinion. So, yeah, some people confuse "facts" with "opinions" and change the "facts" to match there own views. I chose to just say, "Ok" rather than opening my mouth and comment any further.

If I'm not in the conversation I usually stay out of it, but if I'm in it, I usually say exactly what I think.

Can't, especially when these idiots who think "bro" is black or white slang keep pervading the air with their mouth about how it is
It's Spanish/Italian slang, not black or white.

Always. I let very few flutter through, typically I only go all out when attacked or in the face of obvious obsurdety.

Yes, I rarely ever share my thoughts. I like to think a lot which results in me having not many friends to share my thoughts with.

Among people I know- no. I use to but others have a way of adding their commentary. Speak for yourself or they'll speak for you.

Yeah, and it hasn't worked half the time - I suck. As far as the forgiveness write up, that's true of some people and not so much with others :-

Yes, but some people mistake silence for agreeing. Plus there's times I regret not speaking up when I see something I know isn't right or when I see harm being done to someone. That's compassion for others. When I speak up for myself its self-respect.
