Honestly, solipsism is a great way to pass time if your'e bored. In no way is this a good way to live. If one were to live as extremely solipsistic, then they are to drive themselves mad and distrust everything they see in the world. Of course, I suppose I count myself as solipsistic, but only as far to say that I don't know if anyone else in the world is truly thinking. I wouldn't go as far to say that no one else but myself exists, or else how can I progress in this world? If one hopes to succeed in this world, one must forget about these petty thought experiments and carry on. In other words, extreme solipsism comes from, in my opinion, thinking too hard. I have not actually run into anyone that was extremely solipsistic, luckily.
