Basically the Idontthinkso meter is a plug in for my BS monitor. It adds a few more bells and whistles and lots more memory. It susses out things that from a distance look okay. It beeps once when a possibility of something iffy presents itself and sets off alarms when the possibility becomes, well, more than a possibility. Like when somebody makes like their motivations are altruistic but you know they're really all about getting the food from your plate. Or like governments when they want to take the public's mind off of something. They go "Oh, look over there!" and then slip out the door quietly when you're not looking. I've found the Idontthinkso meter pretty well foolproof when it comes to spotting this type of thing. I leave mine on all the time.
I installed it to complement my Dingaling 2.0 plug in. The Dingaling 2.0 lets you know when you're dealing with someone who just doesn't get it and indications are they probably never will. Like when they continue to stick their hand in a meat grinder and wonder why their manicure is all messed up. This one I've had to adjust to a high level of tolerance so it only goes off in extreme cases. There are just too many folks these days who have a difficult time tuning in that it would be constantly dingalinging if left at the factory settings. And that can be quite off-putting, like trying to concentrate with someone yelling Shakespeare sonnets backwards in your ear. The Dingaling 2.0 is not new technology to the market but sometimes the tried and true oldies are the best. And it's free but you have to work at getting it to function to capacity. It takes practice.
You need both of these meters in this day and age. They help you keep things in perspective and allow you to know whether to: 1) look into something more closely, or 2) feel sorry and slowly back away, while avoiding eye contact.
They may save your life one day.
