Intellectual humility is often described as an intellectual virtue, along with other perceived virtues such as open-mindedness, intellectual courage and integrity, and in contrast to proposed intellectual vices, such as pride and arrogance. See "Doxastic Definition of Intellectual Humility". ’What should we do to be intellectually humble?’, is a question that can be asked in situations like disagreements or when it comes to testimony. Should we believe what people say or what should we do when we disagree with someone? These questions are all epistemological questions because the goal of being intellectually humble is to gain more knowledge and to find out what is true and what is not.
