When you are a person of conviction, you believe that what you know is the truth and you are grounded in that truth. You stand by the truth whether it is age old, archaic, and regardless if it is not politically correct or not part of some fad. You believe that the truth is true and that it is not determined by a popular vote, or by its convenience. When you are truly grounded in a truth, you believe from your core and you are prepared to defend it. This means that you have personally reflected and searched your conscious for inconsistencies and inadequacies and that you are well read.
