taking it with a grain of salt scale

we all weigh things differently, based on numerous factors, personal experience, trauma, upbringing, etc.

I thought it might be fun to create scaled ratings for two different issues. you rate different factors on a scale of 1-10 ten being you take it very serious, 1 not serious at all. The object is to decide which factor you take more seriously, not which one you can or cannot affect change. Unless that is the criteria you have for taking something seriously.

For example I'll provide the first two factors:


1. you go to the store to buy a box of cereal and the box is now smaller and the store is charging 38 cents more for it.

2. you read online certain countries gave money to Clinton Foundation while HRC was Secretary and later revelations reveal benefits were given to donating countries by the US.

Problem is, taking with a grain of salt would not apply in example 1 above. It means you are skeptical about believing something, rather than accepting that something happened and move on.
as described for the purpose of the scale, its about taking something serious or not so much.

Ok maybe consider subjective unit of distress for each one.
Scale of 1-10, 10 being the most distressed, 1 not at all.


1. (3)

2. (7)
