The Reverse Dictionary

Examine the following description:

the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought...The power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction.

Choose one:

1) a requirement of holding public office in Britain

2) the job description of BBC and Guardian journalists

3) job description for the post of Archbishop of Canterbury

4) all of the above.
