Baden Scales of Red Flags

The Baden Scales are a useful way to evaluate whether your friend is picking up on red flags or whether they are choosing to ignore them.

1. Actual knowledge – Your friend acknowledges the red flag

2. Wilfully shutting one’s eyes to the obvious – Your friend pretends like the red flag doesn’t exist but it genuinely does like it’s so obvious wth

3. Wilfully and recklessly failing to make such inquiries as an honest and reasonable person would make – The red flag definitely exists but your friend doesn’t ask anything or question it like... what?

4. Knowledge of circumstances which would indicate the facts to an honest and reasonable person – You tell everyone else about the red flag and they’re like “yeah that’s a red flag” so for sure your friend must know it’s a red flag I mean come on

5. Knowledge of circumstances which would put an honest and reasonable person on inquiry – Your friend like actually witnesses the red flag and actually heard that comment the person made but still never questioned it and everyone else who you tell about it was like “that’s actually messed up I would have said something”
