Thanks to George Siemens blog, I learned of a wonderful phrase, "Strong Opinions, Weakly Held," as blogged by Bob Sutton.
I’d actually like to modify it a bit to: "Strong Ideas, Weakly Held." This adds the connotation that the thoughts have been well researched (not just back-of-the-envelope opinions).
In a sense, it’s the researchers’ mindset–to work tirelessly to gather relevant data, make sense of it, state a conclusion, but then be willing to test that conclusion with data.
